Can I post a PDF file?

Post by gregstewart1952 » Jul 30 2018 6:44 am

I just posted a new trip report for Spence Basin, a new trail area in Prescott, AZ. I've got a PDF map that people would probably find useful, but I'm not sure how to attach it to my trip report. Please advise.

Yes for descriptions you have 2 options.

Add by URL
In the upper right of the description page click the "edit page" button. Put the URL link at the bottom of the text on the "text' tab. If it's mentioned in the body of the description it'll get linked directly to the text.

Add by FILE
E-mail the pdf file to traildex@gmail.com

you can also convert .pdf files to .jpg files...a quick google search will tell you how

if push comes to shove, print out the jpg file and take a picture of it with your camera

Indeed you can also convert, post in a photoset then link in the description too. If you do please convert to .png without reducing size or it'll be an eyesore on retina displays. PDF by URL or FILE is preferred.
