Attach another document to this page. Enter the Edit mode and hover over the Insert/Edit Link (the funny globe icon) and click Attachment, then use the Browse button to select a file, this will transfer the file to the Colby server (but not attach to the Wiki).  The final step is to select the file from the attachment file list and click OK.  This will link the file. My example is listed below:
