If you need to create a hyperlink to a media item within a page/post then you'll need the url of that item. In this mini tutorial we'll explain where you can locate the url of any item within the media section of WordPress then use that to create a link to it.

Once you are logged into the admin area navigate to "Media" (located on the left hand side). Upload an image/document (if it is not already there) by clicking "Add New" and following the on-screen instructions. Once you have an item in the media library that you want to link to, click on that item to show more information.
