1 post in this topic

How to add files to the downloads section

  • Visit http://www.thescambaiter.com/forum/index.php?/files/category/5-member-contributions/ and click 'upload file' at the top right
  • Choose the files, you can also upload screenshots e.g. if you are uploading PDF forms you can submit a screenshot image of a page of the form
  • You can also link to files instead of uploading them, for example if the files are hosted elsewhere
  • Enter the name the files will be displayed under, e.g. Application Form (Individual)
  • You can add a version, e.g. 2014, as well as tags and 'change log' information (what's changed since the previous version)
  • Enter a description of the file
  • Finally, click 'add submission'

How to add files to the downloads section, so only registered users can see them

  • Visit http://www.thescambaiter.com/forum/index.php?/files/category/6-private-file-downloads/ and click 'upload file' at the top right
  • Choose the files, you can also upload screenshots e.g. if you are uploading PDF forms you can submit a screenshot image of a page of the form
  • You can also link to files instead of uploading them, for example if the files are hosted elsewhere
  • Enter the name the files will be displayed under, e.g. Application Form (Individual)
  • You can add a version, e.g. 2014, as well as tags and 'change log' information (what's changed since the previous version)
  • Enter a description of the file
  • Finally, click 'add submission'

How to download files from the downloads section

  • Visit http://www.thescambaiter.com/forum/index.php?/files/ (or click the 'downloads' tab at the top of the page)
  • Pick the category from the left-hand side (Member Contributions, for example)
  • In your chosen category there might be even more categories, look at the left-hand side
  • Click on the file you want to download
  • Click 'Download' at the top right, and accept any terms/conditions you might be shown
  • Then you will see a list of files for that download, click 'download' next to any you want to download
  • The list of files will probably contain different versions of the same file (e.g. an image, document and PDF version) so only download the version you want; a 12 page form will contain 12 images and one PDF, in most cases you will just need the PDF
  • At the top right of the page you can rate the download and leave a review - reviews and ratings will help the person who uploaded the file if any changes need to be made or if you have any suggestions
