How to add Content Links to Notion

As a reminder, here is an overview about what Content Links are:


If you haven't added any Content Links in the past, first you'll need to click on 'Member Pages' in your top navigation > make sure you have added at least one Member Page > and then click on Content Links in the left side menu.

Content Link types

Below are the different types of Content Links you can have along with their member interactions options:

PDF Content Links:
- Show in browser when the link is clicked
- Download the PDF when the link is clicked

Video Content Links (more info):
- Popup the video when the link is clicked
- Turn the link automatically into an embed of the video (without a click)

Audio Content Links (mp3 only):
- Download the mp3 when the link is clicked
- Turn the link automatically into an embed audio player (without a click)

Image Content Links:
- Download the image when the link is clicked
- Popup the image when the link is clicked 
- Turn the link automatically into an embed of the image (without a click)

HTML Content Links:
- Turn the link automatically into an embed output of the HTML (without a click)

File Content Links:
- Anything that is not a PDF, image, mp3, HTML, or video counts as a file
- Download the file when the link is clicked

Before adding Content Links

Before adding your Content Links to your Member Pages, you should edit them to make sure the following fields are how you want them:

You can always edit these fields in the future, but if you change "What can members do with this content" you'll need to manually replace that Content Link you placed on any Member Pages.

How to add download/popup Content Links

This is for PDFs, images, videos, mp3s, or files

  2. Make sure you are logged into your Notion backend.
  3. Click on the page you want to add the Content Link.
  4. Within the page, add text that will represent the Content Link (e.g. Click here for my video):

  6. Paste in the Content Link URL you copied from Step 1, then click 'Link' or just press Enter on your keyboard:
