Attachments

Discussion in 'Ask the Staff' started by Meg the Healer, Feb 18, 2011.

  1. How do you add them? Like if someone asked you to send them something and you want to attach a pdf file or something. How do you do that? Or where do you do that?


    I do know how to spell Attachment regardless of what my thread topic indicates. :)

    I fixed the title for you, Meg. :)

    I believe that it is possible to send attachments with vBulletin, although they are not activated at this time. I can look into this and see how to get them working, provided that they aren't a security risk.
     
  3. Thanks! I posted in the forum part of a chapter and someone wants to read all of it, so I figure the easiest way was to send him a private message with an attachment.

    Or if you know how to create a link to a document - then I can post a link for anyone who wants to read the full chapter. Either way, I appreciate you looking into it!

    I've activated the attachments feature. Please try sending one, and let me know if it works.

    Also, the limit for stored attachments is currently 1 megabyte per user, which is enough for several documents. If we need to raise this limit, we can. We'll see how things go and make adjustments accordingly.
     
  5. I can't attach it to a private message (I may just be blind....but that's not unusual for me).

    When I went to attach it in the showcase - my file exceeds the limit by 39kb. The max is 19.5, my file size is 58.4. It's 10 pages on a pdf file.

    I appreciate all your efforts and I don't want to be chore.....

    Nevermind - I could upload it as a zip file and it seems to work. Check it out and see if it works for you (I can't tell if it really works for me because I already have to doc on my computer).

    It's in Showcase section - The Last Prophecy: Child of Light.

    Clever thinking, Meg. I was able to open the chapter without difficulty. It's beautifully written, by the way. :)
