Wordpress pdf links not working

Hi,

My pdf links are no longer working on my WordPress sites. I can link jpgs and urls with no trouble, but suddenly all my pdfs stopped working on my sites. Can anyone tell me why?
Thanks!

Hi @LaHondaAnnie,

 

Has there been any updates to your site, particularly security or membership software?  Sometimes an update to these types of plugins can cause some problems with access.

 

There will certainly be some other possibilities, but if it just seemed to suddenly break automatic updates can often be the source.

 

Hope this helps,

James

Thanks James. Since it's all my sites, I thought it might be something more universal, like the hosting.

Hi @LaHondaAnnie,

 

If you are using one of the platforms that automatically updates WP, it may have been updated across all of your sites.  I have indeed had a situation where after a WP update, I HAD to update both the theme and the plugin on every single installation where I'd used the theme (Avada).

 

Hope this helps,

James
