I feel so stupid asking this, but cant for the life of me get a hyperlnk to output properly so that a dataobject (in this case pdf's) can be downloaded.

Is there something I need to add in my php file??

<div class="typography">
	<% if Menu(3) %>
		<% include SideBar %>
		<div id="Content">
	<% end_if %>

	<% if Level(2) %>
	  	<% include BreadCrumbs %>
	<% end_if %>
	
		<h1>$Title</h1>
		$SGFirstParagraph
		
		<h2>Download Current RAD Schedules</h2>
		<ul>		
		<% control SafetyGuidelines %>
		<li><a href="$Link">$SafetyGuidelineTitle</a></li>
		
		<% end_control %>
		</ul>
		
		$Content
		$Form
		$PageComments
	<% if Menu(3) %>
		</div>
	<% end_if %>
</div>

I should have mentioned, I am calling the dataobject here:


<% control SafetyGuidelines %>
      <li><a href="$Link">$SafetyGuidelineTitle</a></li>
      
      <% end_control %>
