Red Pitaya

I got my Red Pitaya for Christmas. I am very much a Newbie.
I am trying to find some guidance to basic answers - like
Do the analogue inputs have over-voltage protection?
(Seems stupid the input jumpers get covered up when it goes it's metal case!)
Note that I found this:
https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/a-starting-guide-for-the-red-pitaya
BUT when I click on it - nothing!
Cheers

I have downloaded the guide, thank you for re-attaching.
I have a couple of concerns:
1/. on first exemination, the guide appears to be for an earlier version of the web interface. I am using Chrome, as recommended. I am guessing most if not all of the controls are the same but wondering Is there a more up-to-date version on the guide.
2/. I am also noticing most of the support questions etc 'out there' on the web seem to be a good few years old and I fear I may have bought something that is
out of date & consequently finding support/help etc
Cheers
