  One line summary

Write a document explaining how to use core Joomla! functions to offer file

For this task you will help beginning users move beyond the basics to take
advantage of the flexibility of Joomla!.

Users often wish to offer their visitors PDF, spreadsheet or document files
to download. One simple way to do this is to use the media manager to
upload the files and create links to those files in one or more content pages.

Create a one to two page document that describes the steps for doing this
in Joomla! 1.5.
Skills Needed

    * Familiarity with Joomla!
    * Good writing skills
    * Good page layout skills 


Work Product

A one page polished document that effectively explains the process to a
beginning user.

Documentation written for this task must be made available under the
Joomla! Electronic Documentation License.
Extra Credit (optional)

Create a second document that explains how to modify the media settings in
global configuration.
Time Limit

Two weeks

This is not the final draft, simply being used for hosting since the Joomla! forums

Here's the final revision. There weren't many responses so I just assumed everything
was fine. Posted on the Joomla! Forums as well.
