I want to link to a pdf located in the Ninth District Appellate Court website, but it's not an approved site for 'images' and Photobucket won't take a pdf.

    If you right click on the pdf url at the Court website, you should see a menu choice to "copy link location." Click that and then paste the link into your comment or diary.

    Or, to embed the actual document you can open an account and upload a pdf to scribd:
    http://www.scribd.com/

    I'm not sure if you can save the pdf from Court to your hard drive, and then upload it to Scribd, or if it would need to be a pdf you created. Worth checking out. There is a possibility your document is already uploaded at Scribd, and if it is not marked private, you can use it.

    Here is a diary at Daily Kos about embedding pdfs with Scribd.

    Thanks, OLinda. I've uploaded the pdf to Scribd and linked to the document in a diary draft.
