    If you try to upload this Word document to your web page using WordPress, then you’ll end up with a downloadable file link, instead of the image. This is because WordPress doesn’t know what’s inside the file – it just looks at the file extension (the part of the filename with either .doc or .docx) and assumes you want to upload a file for web users to download.
