help needed - unable to post zip file
« on: February 25, 2020, 08:27:51 AM »
Hi
Not sure what the problem is here. Want to upload a Zip file containing a change gear calculator renamed as a png file, and zip compressed. Quite useful for owners of wm250/280 or similar lathes, written by myself out of frustration and necessity.

Any help on the posting much appreciated, size only 1.7mB.

Best Regards

Try making your post first, then come back and add the attachment after.  For example, see if it will attach to your post here, you can always delete it after.

Hi Joules
Never knew such a simple thing could be so complicated. As you can see it works so I will post in the correct place.

Many Thanks

Best Regards

 :doh:

I discovered it after such an experience as yours.   Sometimes the website software seems have an off day regarding attachments, you may also experience it with a new post, it won't post unless you do it as text body and then add the pictures/attachments after, under modify.
