    Arrow E-books?

    Guys, I'm about to post a free e-book to the marketing folder... Was just wondering if the people involved in this forum would like to have a dedicated place for placing e-books for those who want it?

    Dave, I hope it's OK... I got the book for free last night, to do with marketing, even though I haven't finished reading it yet, I feel it could be of help to the marketers around us...

    I also have various other ebooks, will post some more in time if everyone agrees that we go ahead with it...

    Comments please guys!

    That sounds great. I could also open up the appropriate file format and have it uploaded in the links & downloads manager. Something for members only, maybe?

    What would the file format be - any special readers required?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Dave, have loads of ebooks in .exe format, though that poses a problem for those not on Windows and for those who are tight on security...

    PDF is the main format I reckon, file I'm uploading to marketing is 4MB, so not sure what you want to make of the sizes... (One ebook I have about forex is 18MB, though I doubt whether or not it would have a place on this forum, just giving an example)

    I'll take a closer look at file size permissions to see if we can make a plan.

    PDF format isn't an issue, that's available. But there's a general file size limit I'm going to see if I can navigate around.

    Enabling exe file uploads through the manager is out, I'm afraid - way too much of a security risk. For those we'd have to have a link to a file loaded by FTP here, or available for download from another server as you're setting up with this Google Adwords one.

    Either way - I'm opening a category for ebooks in the links manager. As the list grows we'll break it into categories.

    Great... And I reckon your idea of putting it in the downloads section is correct... Maybe then just keep an updated list in a sticky somewhere for reference?
