I need to provide a download link in my footer where customers get the revocation form.

I have the following in my phtml filebut it is not working. The PDF document is in pub/media/pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf

<li class="nav item"><a href="<?php echo $this->getMediaUrl('pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf');?>"><?php echo __('Revocation Form') ?></a></li>

I also tried

<a href="{{media url="pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf"}}" target="_blank"></a>    

can anyone help? Thanks!


You can get media URL by objectManager method directly in your phtml file.

        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
        $mediaUrl = $objectManager->get('Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface')

<li class="nav item"><a href="<?php echo $mediaUrl.'pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf';?>"><?php echo __('Revocation Form') ?></a></li>

or you can Get By Dependency Injection method

protected $_storeManager;

public function __construct( 
    \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface $storeManager,
) {
    $this->_storeManager = $storeManager;

public function getMediaUrl()
    $mediaUrl = $this->_storeManager
    return $mediaUrl;

and then you can call this method in phtml file like the below way.

<li class="nav item"><a href="<?php echo $block->getMediaUrl().'pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf';?>"><?php echo __('Revocation Form') ?></a></li>

  • It is unfortunately not working, it causes a 404. The generated URL is media/pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf, the file path is: pub/media/pdf/Muster-Widerrufsformular.pdf – Thomas Schott Apr 16 at 6:36
  • Have you used the object manager method from my answer? – Kishor Thummar Apr 16 at 6:42
