How to Attach PDF file in forum?

Post by Distinguished on February 14th 2013, 2:24 pm

I read that article about "How to Manage Attachments". It didn't help me much. Which icon do I click to upload a PDF file? I see video, flash, link, image, host an image, insert a table, but what about to upload a PDF file? Thanks for your help!

Try going to ACP -> General -> Attachments, then make sure that they are enabled. Also, be sure to check and make sure there is enough space available, and the max attachment size is large enough to accommodate for your PDF file.

Once that's enabled, you should see a file attachment section just below the send button. If it doesn't look something like what you see below, there may be a problem in your attachment settings. (I don't think this works in quick reply)

I tried manipulating those numbers under "Attachments" but they keep going back down to zero. Maximum attachments by messages is able to change. Can you explain the "Allowed space for attachments"? Am I able to set that? And also, what do you think I'm doing wrong to keep getting all zeros?

And thanks for pointing out where the browse is with the picture because I did not see that.

I didn't get to the part where I attempt to upload a file. On my forum, next to the browse and send button, it reads, "Max size per file : 0 Mb". I am trying to change that from reading 0MB. In the Administration Panel, under General --> Attachments, no matter what numbers I type in, when I hit save, they go back to all zeros. And my forum therefore, stays at allowing 0Mb per file, which means I'm not able to upload anything at all. What number configuration do you recommend that will allow for it to stop going back to all zeros? I'm talking about the "Maximum attachment size," "Maximum allowed space for members," and "Maximum allowed space for moderators." They all keep going back to zeros after I change the number and hit "save." I tried dividing out the 20480 Kb to 2: 10480 for moderator and 10480 for member, and then max attachment at 10480. Then I tried dividing it into 3: 6820 for moderator and 6820 for member with max of 6820. Then I tried 5,000Kb for all three and every time I hit save, all the numbers go back to zero as if it is rejecting what I put.

I didn't know about not being able to post back to back. My last post was yesterday.

Allowed space for attachments:
What do you see there?

Are you pressing the save button after entering the information in the administration panel?
