Thanks Al.

Your Small Naval Combatants group on Facebook is doing well - a great new resource!

PS: THREE GOLD stars for Al,
and since I'm in a good mood now, I'm taking back one RED FLAG on Ted.

Dick,

Is there a way to upload files here? If so, I'd be happy to upload the action reports. They're in PDF.

Al

Sorry Al,

The software is too old to support .PDF's. It would have to be a service like Photobucket, BUT they don't host PDF files, just photos and videos. Google Drive would be one source. If you have a google account (easy to get) you can use their "Drive" service where you copy the file to your Google Drive and create a "shared for all link." Then simply paste the link into your forum posts. When a link is click on or copied and pasted in a browser window it will take the interested party directly to a PDF viewer. There it can be read on line or downloaded.

The previous material that was posted here has been removed - please use Al's link below to navigate to the Action Report.

Hope this helps a little,

Al . . . .

I was experimenting on Facebook and discovered if you hover your mouse or the action bar below a posted PDF you have two option:

TO create a link to [b]PREVIEW[/b] the PDF simply hover over the "Preview" button and right-click to bring up a menu where you can choose "COPY LINK". This will be copied to your clipboard. Simply navigate to the Message Board and simply "COPY" the link in a post. When visitors reading your message board post clicks on the link, the PDF will automatic load up in a Browser Window where they can read or save the file to their computer.

TO create a link to [b]DOWNLOAD[/b] the PDF simply repeat the above, but, right-click the "DOWNLOAD" button. When visitors reading your message board post clicks on the link, the PDF will be automatically downloaded to their computer with no online preview.

This should easily be a more direct approach and [b]avoid[/b] having to upload PDF's to Google Drive.
