Not a function used much, but the Add button is there, so I tried and the Choose button was dead??

For me it works fine, obviously I haven't overcome my attachments yet :smile:

Over at Dhamma Wheel when I tried this attachment function it said 'file too big' - it is 5MB.

What is the size limit here?

Still an issue. Hopefully DNS or some mod will increase the file size limit to 5MB at least - or more.

Okay, increased it to 10MB at DWT and here at DWM. Try it now.

Nope, none of my pdf files in the Kirk area were hot.

Yet, over at Dharma Paths, all the PDFs were attachable, so I attached Kirk's book there.

I successfully uploaded an 8 MB jpg to see if it would work (and then deleted it), but when I tried a 1.5 MB pdf I got an error message, "Invalid file extension: Dhammapada.pdf" so it looks like it won't accept pdf's.

I have a vague memory from years ago to the effect that pdf's posed some kind of security risk - malware could be hidden inside them, or something - and perhaps the phpbb software normally disallows them for that reason ... but that setting must be under admin control or you wouldn't be able to upload one at DWM.

:coffee:

By jingo it works now - below is a 3.7MB one. Thanks to all who fixed the jpg part of it!

However, I tried several pdfs - still will not function.
