Danny's code works for when `file.pdf` is in the same directory as the pg file, as OP describes.

An alternative that is better in some (not all!) situations, is to put the file in the course's html/ folder. That folder is parallel to templates/, so you navigate up one level in the File Manager to get there.

And then replace `alias('file.pdf')` with:

And if you really want to hard code a link to that file in one specific course's html/ folder, then replaceĀ  `alias('file.pdf')` with:
where `myschool` and `mycourse` are edited appropriately.

To decide what is best, think about the consequences of how the .pg file is coded, and what will happen if it propagates to other courses.
