    Hi all,

    We have just installed a new downloads section that will make it easy for members to share files with each other. The following file types are allowed zip rar tar gz and pdf as well as jpg and gif picture formats.

    If you have any files that you think might benefit others please do upload them to our server. There are a few different categories in which to organise the downloads, if you need any more then please shout. You can find the link to the downloads section in the navigation bar that is on the left hand side of the home page. (or click here) The following pictures show how easy it is to upload your files. Files that are uploaded are moderated, so they will not appear straight away, as soon as they are approved, they will be downloadable

    This is the Downloads home page just click on ADD

    Then complete this simple procedure and upload

    Hi Olley, Sorry your having trouble. The limit is set at 10mb, but I am learning that I might have to tweak a server setting for files over 3mb, I will read a help file or two if I get time today. What file type was it?
