How do I upload a 2MB PDF file?
« on: March 11, 2015, 10:28:34 AM »
Hi,
I've got a 2MB PDF file that I'd like to share.  How can I do that?  It's too big for an attachment and the gallery won't accept it as a "picture".
Thanks, Paul

You can email it to us Paul and I will upload via ftp and provide link to you to use in a message.

that might be easiest.

I guess it could go where the Minerama .pdf book files are.
I would expect things like this to appear when you click on "Downloads", but they don't. Could it be arranged so that they do, as it's the most obvious place to look for them? In fact, I don't know how anyone could find them without the link being provided.

Thanks for that Leah but it's not really that important ... I was just wondering if there was an easy way to do it.

John, Where are the Minerama book files?

This is because I set up the Downloads feature after we did the Minerama books - it is an additional mod that had to be added to the forum software.  I have not had a chance to go back and add this type of thing to the Downloads section. 

It got dropped off the list as not urgent but I can bump it up higher if you want - perhaps after Minerama though as lots on this weekend - the forum is not my paying job  ;D

Thanks for all you do, Leah. If you can organise the download folder some time, I think quite a few more resources might come to light.
Paul, here is the link to the location of the Minerama books (and other stuff): http://www.aussiesapphire.com/ALF_Storage/
Happy reading
