Can I embed files into HelpDocs?

We'll host all your images for you, and we let you embed videos directly from Youtube / Vimeo / ilos.

You can also embed any files you like from G Suite, or anywhere that gives you an HTML embed code for your docs. Just paste the snippet into the article's HTML view.

If you're looking for another format, like a PDF or a Word document, you'll need to host that file somewhere else and link to it from HelpDocs. We love Dropbox for this. 

Pro tip for Dropbox users
If you're linking to a file from Dropbox, change the dl=0 to dl=1 at the end of the URL. That way the file will start downloading for users right away, instead of showing them a Dropbox preview page.
