Does anyone know if it’s possible to place a link to a file you have on your PC in a post without posting the entire file? Thanks BW

Keith,


Thanks for responding. I am aware of most of the things you explained. Just thought maybe I could make the one file accessible via the board. I could perhaps place it on a webpage and then post a link to that. My goal was to make a file accessible to all of the MAB members to see the changes that have been made and discuss them. The file is 17 pages long and would make for a very long post. Thanks for your input though, it is much appreciated. Bob W

That’s your best option, I think- post it on a website somewhere, and then link to it. If you don’t want it on your own website, go sign up for a freebie from Yahoo or somewhere, and post it there. A free Yahoo account can be useful for such things. Only drawback, is that I don’t think there’s any way to lock those accounts, so anybody can see what you put in there, so if it’s private, or membership only kind of info, anyone who can find it can read it. Otherwise, that’s probably your best shot.

I’ve never noticed that Red text down there before! BUT…


I just now tried to click on it and got an error message that said " this feature is in development. Please report problems to webmaster@Nachi.org.


However, why wouldn’t a pdf load up as an “image” using the insert image file?

Because I said so!! ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif) ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif) ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

Really though, who the hell knows, but it won't. Probably image tags or some crap.

Anyway, when you get the message about reporting problems, click OK, and a new window opens (have to have popups enabled or hold down the Ctrl key when clicking the OK) that you can use to upload a PDF File.

Erby,


That sounds like it should work just fine. The file is in Word format now. If you email or PM me with your email address I’ll send the file as an attachment. Thanks a million for your help on this. BW

forums are set up to accept any file upload. The webmaster can set which files are allowed and which are not. Just because it says Image file means nothing. If the webmaster has it allowed to accept .pdf or .doc files then you can upload them.


Only reason I know that is that I am a webmaster of a forum also.
