Lessons in Attachments


From: Sim' Hampel

After some experimentation, I have found that there is a limit to the length of a filename that the forum software (WebBoard) will accept for an attached file.

The entire filename (including the extension and any spaces) must be no more than 43 characters long.

For example a file with the name:


has 10 characters, and would work.

The file:

This is my file and the name is too long.doc

has 44 characters and will NOT work when attempting to attach it to a post.

Hope this helps.
