Cannot Upload PDF to Wiki/Forum

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys,
I have a 1.4MB PDF file I cannot upload to the WIKI or Forum.
Not sure whats causing the issue.

Here is a link to it on Google Drive:

I was able to upload an older version of the PDF fine, maybe its the PDF type thats the issue.

If anyone can figure out whats going wrong I'd really appreciate it.


Thanks!

Most likely, it is a quota/filesize problem. You should be able to reduce the JPG quality of some images, to get it well below 1MB (the last version was 400kb or so), then i have the feeling it might work again in the forums or the wiki.

If you cannot reduce the filesize by reducing the image quality, you could just split it in two PDFs and upload them.

PS: Nice work!

Happy holidays!
Many greets,
Peter

So the note about the file size limit being 2MBs when you hit the upload file tab is incorrect?

Happy Holidays!
