Assalam 'Alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

For all those who have knowledge and want to share it but are limited by the attachment size, here's an alternative. External host websites, these websites can be used to upload you content, and when you've uploaded your content there you get a download link for each upload which you can share here. Then every member who wants to download can download it.

How to do so? I've got 1 website here as example, it's http://www.filefactory.com

When you go to this website you'll see on the homepage the option: 'Upload a File' click on it, then click on the button 'Select Files to Upload'. Once you've selected your PDF file you can click the 'Upload to Filefactory' button and wait till the file is uploaded. After the upload is complete you'll get the download link, if you scroll down a bit you'll see the option to see the donwload link in plain text. Copy that link, paste it in you new topic and you've got the attachment you need. Pretty simple.

We might be able to increase the size that is allowed to be attached... I might have to look at our server space and see if it's available insha `Allah.

Downloading from external hosts also saves us bandwith which we have so little of unfortunately. Also we don't have to worry about abuse.

We don't have to worry so much about downloading abuse, due to a "member's only policy" in regards to this section.

I increased the upload limit... if it becomes abused we will limit it. If abuse becomes rampant, we will only increase the limit from scheduled/arranged members... insha `Allah.

What is the upload limit?

I noticed you requested tafsirs etc in another thread in this section, I have Tafsir Ibn Kathir in pdf. Wanted to upload it but not sure of the file limit.

How to share oversized PDFs:

Get frustrated and cry to insha about it until he increases the allowed size.

:P
