How/where to upload larger files (PDFs): is Wiki gone?

In the previous iteration of the forum there was an associated wiki where larger files could be uploaded and archived. I'd like to upload a few larger PDFs (1-2 mbs) of old SMB manuals, price lists, and the like, since SMB doesn't do this on their site. Is there a place that supports this? Adding it as an attachment to a regular post doesn't work due to upload size limits.

Is the wiki still available? If so, where is it found?

You should be able to load those files directly to a thread which would be more searchable for others looking for info.

I agree, you should be able to do that, but as I wrote, the file size limit precludes being able to. See the forum attachment size limit chart below. 195kb max for a PDF doesn't get you too much when you are uploading manuals and the like, which are a valuable resource to have on the forum for people who have vehicles/appliances/accessories that are no longer supported by manufacturers.

Also, to the wiki question: did all that content disappear with the forum changeover?

Still looking into the old wiki, but the limit for pdfs has been raised substantially today to 2 megs.

For those who may be interested, it seems the PDF limit is 1.91 mb, not a full 2mb. At least that's the message I got when I tried to upload a 1.94 mb file. Still, a huge improvement over the previous 195 kb limit!
