There are two ways to add PDFs to your Authory account, either by importing them from another website or by uploading them from your local device. For both options, you need to click the "Add new content" button in the sidebar menu:

Import PDFs

If you know the URL of a PDF that you'd like to import to your Authory account (e.g., then select "Manual Import" and paste the respective URL.

Upload PDFs

If you'd like to upload a PDF from your computer/device, then select "Upload content".

In both cases you can add a custom headline, date and description for your PDF. The description will be displayed as part of the preview on your Authory page.

Thumbnail Image for PDFs

By default, Authory will show a preview of your PDF as its thumbnail. However, you can change that anytime and upload a custom thumbnail. Here is a quick guide.
