Questions about the forums and FAQs

Questions and answers about forums and FAQs: what they are and how to use them.

How do I use Forums and FAQs?
See the GSRC FAQ Section Questions about the forums and FAQs.

How do I attach or upload a file to an article?
There are two types of attachments:
  1. When an article is created, one can upload plain text or html to be used as the body of the article.
  2. After the article is created, one can upload one or more named files of any type, for example, PowerPoint.

When an article is added one can select whether file uploads are allowed.

If you upload a file with the same name as an already existing file, then the contents of the file is replaced with the contents of the upload.

Note that there is currently a limit to the size of the attachment that can be uploaded. (The size is set in /usr/local/lib/php.ini) If you would like to share larger files, then you may want to set up your workgroup to use CVS authoring. For details, see: How do I edit pages in a group with the "CVS Authoring" option?
Don't forget that if you are checking in binary files, you should use cvs add -kb filename so that CVS knows that the file is a binary file.
