    Default Article Library

    I know that NAFEX does not support uploading of photos and files.

    Being a computer guy, I get the headaches that go with all that. Besides the fact that the engine "under the hood" which powers NAFEX is not equipt to do so.

    However, there are plenty of dicussions that come up refering to articles that people have written. In a handful of cases I ahve seen these transcribed into a thread, and thats a good solution in some cases...

    But I think if there were a NAFEX library it would be even more helpful. Is there a feasable way to do this on the servers that host NAFEX? I have a web presence that I could do this through as long as the traffic is very limited - which I would expect it to be, but then its reliant on me to be around to offer it.

    Of course, the real awesome answer would be for the Archives to go digital with their offerings, but that is a way out yet.

    You could use a DropBox to put the articles and then put the public links in a thread or create a issuu acount to do this.

    Just thinking on options.

    Thats a good solution Pedro. There are several cloud based "drive" solutions that could be brought to bear.

    Of course, the downside to that is relying on some entity besides NAFEX to get access.

    One real problem with the computer industry is it tends to think in extremely short time frames, and forget that companies and technologies come and go. Very ironic, considering how extremely rapid those changes are within the tech industry.

    I'd give another vote for dropbox, we use this for all the materials for our sales team and quite a bit of our physician training material etc. A very versatile tool to have at hand. Maybe we get a nafex dropbox account?

    I think they are talking about a larger scale rather than just an article here and there that Chris has accommodated in the past.
