[mod]these posts were moved from the Joomla thread[/mod]

Not much use to you in any of the design or coding functions but if at some point you need some photoshopping done then let me know. I am a photographer, still life though not sports, but use photoshop everyday and I'm happy to help out if you need.

You know someone might want to loose a few years or a few kilos the easy way. ;)

Hi Philip, do you know how to fix the bug which limits the number of links in a single post? Stuart can advise

I can fix photos but that's about it. I can't even figure out how to get a picture under my name on this forum. It won't accept anything I try.

So sorry no, in fact I don't even understand the problem.

The signature attempt was a failed attempt, but the edit avatar also failed, I can't seem to get an image down to 6kb. I think it might be a Mac thing. No matter how small I edit the image to, once I save it it won't so below 19kb. I've had the same trouble before. Never mind I'll just have to be one of those mythical "faceless men"

thought you might have been on to something with the delete icon, I hadn't tried that before. So I made an image 10px by 10px (300 bytes, yes bytes not kilobytes) then saved it as a jpeg at 0 quality, ie max compression. Once closed the file when viewed in the finder is still 32kb, then I delete the icon and I can get it down to 16kb. still no good.

so somehow a 300byte image saves as a 32kb file. I have no idea what's in the rest of the data.

Thanks James, I've tried to up load the file but still get the "file must be between 0 and 6kb" message.

Really it's not a problem though, I'm happy to be faceless.

Sounds like it's an issue Stuart will need to sort out then. Most of us had inserted our avatar some time back.

I'm trying to upload documents for the AGM to the DHBC website. It's in Joomla and I can't work out how to upload a PDF through media manager which seems to be the place to upload stuff. The online help goes to a 404 page (unhelpful). According to the error message, PDF is unsupported, which seems unlikely but you never know.

So, if you are able to point me in the direction or even better do it for me, I will really appreciate it. However:

And if the answer is "insert this html code" please write that bit of code for me :)

And if the answer is a link to the Joomla help wiki - thanks I looked there already. I've forgotten how to read that stuff.

And if the answer is "we need a plug-in that we don't have" and you know how to do this - can you volunteer to get that plug-in and install it please?

thanks Eleri

Eleri - call me Tue. Send me the PDF and tell me where you want it to appear.
