Here is a .pdf file:

No there isn't, as the .pdf extension isn't allowed.

Let's go look for the extensions that are allowed.

So where do you suppose one should look to find out what extensions are allowed?

Admin should be able to tell what attachments are allowed, other than that, all you can do is use trial and error.

May I bring this part of the FAQs to the attention of the board administrator:
What attachments are allowed on this board?
Each board administrator can allow or disallow certain attachment types. If you are unsure what is allowed to be uploaded, contact the board administrator for assistance.

I reckon you've got a defective ACP, or perhaps salem has limited your access powers ? :shock:

Ok, but how about .txt files? I don't know if a search engine would pick up on the content which might make it useful as an attachment.

Another possibilities would be .ico if anyone wants help editing one.

And other vid formats like .wav etc.
