Documents you upload to the media section of your site can be viewed as downloadable PDFs or as Flipbooks. PDFs are a special format that displays the same across devices and outputs. Flipbooks are interactive online versions of books, catalogs, brochures, booklets, etc. Simply upload your PDF and Radius does the rest, converting your document into a Flash-based flipbook that your site visitors can "flip" through.

Creating a PDF

See our helpful guide on creating PDF documents. This guide is also a useful resource for combining multiple PDFs into a single PDF file for uploading as a single document.

Linking to a Document

Detailed directions for creating a hyperlink to a Document are available on the Hyperlinks page.

Sorting Documents


Document Collections are ordered according to creation date. The oldest collection, according to creation date, will appear at the top of the list, and the most recent collection will appear at the bottom.


Documents themselves are ordered by creation creation date by default. The most recently added Documents will appear at the top of the list so they are immediately viewable to visitors, and will continue on a descending basis based on creation date. However, putting your own date into the date field of the Document's properties will override the creation date. Your Documents will then sort based on date entered, with the most recent appearing at the top.

Want more options?

Stay tuned. As Radius improves, we look forward to adding more and broader ways of sorting and managing your documents!

Document Pages

Though your document contains multiple pages these can no longer be reordered. To reorder the pages in an online document, just upload a new PDF.

Mobile Access

Doocuments can be accessed on mobile devices through PDF download. Apple devices have a fully integrated PDF reader that will display the document in the web browser. Most Android devices come with a PDF reader pre-loaded that will open the files after download and Adobe's PDF reader is available for free download on mobile platforms.
