    Yes Tapatalk has been installed and there should be a link appear at the top of the screen when viewed on a mobile. You may possible access it via the Tapatalk app also; I'm not sure as I don't have it.

    Let me know if it's not working and I'll look into it.

    It's now easier to log into your forum account. I've now integrated External Account logins so you can now associate your forum account with your Facebook, Twitter and Google logins.
    You see additional options under the login box and you can also associate these account by going to 'External Accounts' in your profile.

    How big is your file? Mine is 5.61MB. Might be useful to know where the threshold is.

    This is now fixed. I've just uploaded a file of over 10mb and it worked fine. The limit has been set to 64MB on the server! But I beleive that's a sort of spooling limit like on a printer which is usually higher than the actual file being loaded.
    Please do try and keep it to below 10mb if possible otherwise it'll give users problems downloading.
    I've also added an option to the Challenges section to allow people to link to a file instead of uploading one. For example to a Dropbox file. Again please try and avoid this if possible as it relies on the 3rd party keeping the file in the same place and inevitable ends up with broken links over time.
    Happy uploading.

    Because I created a new resource; as I couldn't see a way to add a download to my existing post; is there a way to delete the old one? I've had a look, but can't see an option.
