How do I upload a pdf or word document?

Post by Carbon60 » Fri Feb 14, 2014 8:45 pm

Hi Stephen,

I've written a tutorial on how to build a magnetometer. It's in word and pdf format, but I can't upload either. What's the best way to submit this?

Thanks

Regards

Hmmmm
Maybe something Stephen needs to set-up.
What about re-naming the pdf file to a zip and see if that uploads?

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I have adapted the forum to allow uploading of pdf's and about 150 other extensions...:)

Sorry I didn't catch that setting. There are only about 30 pages of settings in the back end of this monster..:)

keep 'em coming.
