Kbee can automatically detect specially formatted links that let you create “download links” to content in your Google Drive inside an article, or embed Google Drive Files inside your article.
If you want to let your viewers download a file from Kbee, you can do so by creating a special download link on your Doc.
First, copy the link to the file in Google Drive
Next, create a link to that file in your document
Finally, edit the link and add #DOWNLOAD# to the start of the text.
Note: Make sure there are no spaces before the first #
The link below will download the Google Doc used to create this article as a PDF:
You can also embed a document, slide deck, sheet, or any Google Drive file inside an article.
Follow the same instructions as the download links above, but instead of the word #DOWNLOAD# use the word #EMBED#
Note: All other text in the link will be ignored
This is the Google Doc used to create this article!
By default, Kbee uses Google Drive’s built-in download feature. However, in some rare cases Google Drive gets confused and blocks the download. If you are running into this problem, the download proxy can help!
Go to Settings → General → Use Download Proxy
Make sure the file is shared with the Kbee Service Account (firstname.lastname@example.org) or is public
Warning: The proxy will not work for large files that are gigabytes in size.
