    attach files other than photo?

    I would like to attach a Word file to a post rather than incorporate all the text from the file. I can't get it into Photobucket, and don't know how else to reference a file. Is it possible?

    Thanks

    Good question....one that I don't have an answer to.

    Keith, you can upload a word.doc using the advanced reply (vs quick reply).

    The only issue that I see here is that the people wanting to view it have to first download it to their PC first.

    When I click on "manage attachments", nothing happens. How do I get the file into the post?

    Here's what I did....

    Go Advanced> Manage Attachments> Add Files> Select Files> Upload Files

    Dave, there are some fairly stringent limits on file sizes. I tried a test with a small one page text only PDF file and got this:

    "Untitled.pdf: Your file of 27.7 KB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 19.5 KB for this filetype."

    Hmmmm.....I tested it and it worked fine for me. I also looked into the permissions and you have the same as I do so you should be able to upload a word.doc no problem.

    What's a decent file size for a PDF?

    50 k would be a good start. That would be about 3 pages or so, without images.
