Am using thye public website for our township and all is working pretty well.
Now, I need to add a PDF file for all users to access and cannot see how to get it in there. Tried adding a document and got nowhere.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

In 365 pdf stands for "please download file". You can add a link to a pdf stored in your documents but users will only be able to save it not open it directly in the browser. Your options are:
Wait for MSFT to roll out a fix (but that will still require the latest version of Acrobat Reader)
Try this brilliant workaround: http://community.office365.com/en-us/w/sharepoint/permissive-browser-file-handling-needed.aspx
Or store pdfs elsewhere like drop box and link to them there.

The issue that you are seeing is by design. This is because of security issues with permissive file handling. In the latest service update, that currently is being applied to the servers, you will have the ability to click on a hyper linked PDF file and have it open in the client application.
I will continue to monitor this thread if you have any additional questions.

Please do share when this service update shall be applied. Some estimate on time lines would be helpful, to avoid inconvenience & time spent on applying other workarounds.
This would be great. I'm trying to attach a pdf or word file to my website to let students apply on line or at the very least print it and snail mail it to me. When will I be able to do this with office 365?
