Hi, I'd like to post my free PB-tool in a zip-file and if possible a gif in that topic, which explains important functionality (zip is 200 kB, gif is (+9MB), how to do that ?

Thanks.

// Moved from "Announcement" to "General Discussion" (Kiffi)

    * Convert the zip binary into text for example by using the base64encoder command.
    * Upload the picture to some webspace.
    * Create a topic with the encoded zip plus some instructions and embedd the image by using an external link.

Lunar Ship does something similar via PB code

But there is still the text-size limitation of forum posts that you could run into.

That is technically easy to fix, by calculating the maximum size of individual posts, creating a multivolume ZIP archive with that size and post each part in a seperate post. I assume at some point a forum admin will furiously breathe down your neck though, when the database size explodes and the forum software shows bugs due to multi-megabyte postings ;)

What? :o Don't do this!

Just upload the file to your cloud or to every other file hoster. Then you can link to it from here.

Thats the problem, cloud or (private/public) server based storages can disappear due to many different reasons. Forum postings survive many years, including forum moves and if everything fails, you can use the waybackmachine to recover them. Whenever i see any useful sample or software on a cloud or external server, i quickly make a local backup nowadays. Too many of them suddenly disappeared during the years.
