pdf attachments

Postby ravi261 » Sun Jun 17, 2012 4:49 pm

Just asking, but is there anyway we can attach pdfs to our posts? As it stands the editor won't let me. I'm not trying to attach a 10MB or something ridiculous pdf either-it's only 202KB

In adobe, click file, select export image as file, choose jpg, assign a name/folder, etc and then upload to file sharing site and finish the process.

Or just attach it here as jpg.

This forum software does have the option of .pdf attachments, but it's up to the admin.

Yep. You're right, which is why I was hoping on getting an admin point of view on here. I know they might be hesitant because some pdfs can get out of hand quickly. Is there a way to limit the size (I'm pretty sure there is, but not 100%)?

We also have had PDF files submitted that had malware in the past. It's too hard to police those. JPGs are sufficient in most cases and have the added safety factor too.

Sorry,
