« on: April 30, 2012, 05:37:42 PM »
How to insert a PDF, audio or video file which is on your computer into a post.

Left-Click to place your cursor where in your post you want the file to appear.

Click on

This will open a window with a few options.

First click [browse] which allows you to select a  file on your computer.

After you are finished selecting you can add a title and or description if you like.

Press [Submit]

The file will then be uploaded automatically and a link to it placed into your post where your cursor is and look like this when viewed.

This is a sample inserted pdf.

Within your post the code for the above will look like below. You can modify or move it if you like.

Code: [Select]
[smg id=73 type=av align=center caption="This is a sample inserted pdf."]

This is a test insert of an image file as a regular member to see if it works.



It did work using a regular member account.

If you get an error message, "Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery", when uploading check at the top of the upload screen where it says, "Select which album you want to upload this item to", and make sure the album, "For all members", is selected. All members have permission to upload to this album. If it is and you still get the same error message then try the one time procedure of creating your own album to place content in. This is done from the main menu [Media] button.

Click [Media] then [my albums] - [new album] and give it a name. You then have your own space to place images in. The upload link in the editor should automatically default to your album.  You can mark it as non-browseable and then only you and admins will have access to it. Normally everyone can see what you place there but no one but you can upload things to your album unless you give them permission. When you create an album or edit it later there are options to build a list of members who can access your album. You can create as many albums as you like, each with their own permissions.

Items you place into posts using the uploader will be visible to everyone.
