Tha forum software only allows for .jpg attachments. 

You can snap a picture of the .pdf and post that.  Alternatively you can copy and paste the text from the .pdf, but you'd have to attach (and insert) the photos separately.

There are also many pdf programs that allow you to convert a pdf to a jpg, which you could then post.

Seems kinda silly, I went to a lot of effort combining several file types into a single pdf document (sketchup drawings, photos, and text files) showing how to make a hand router so I could share it. PDF files are a common file used by almost every forum I know of. May be time to re think this. I am also surprised you don't accept Sketchup files (skp) also.

This is not about “us guys.” That decision is over our heads. Links are acceptable. Just need to host it off site.

It costs the person that owns the forum money to allow files to be uploaded. Most forums you pay for page views and storage space. The more files, the more you pay. A lot of forums don't even allow you to upload photos to keep cost down.

You could put you files in a public Google Drive and share the link if you really want to share them.

I've seen about 1 inquiry per year of someone trying to post a PDF or other unsupported filetype. I wouldn't consider it to be a real problem. It's easy enough to host it somewhere else or convert to jpg.

I don't see  the attachments.  Did you imbed them in the post?

Never mind, I see it is a separate posting.
