      It's not officially supported. It could be done if the admins wanted to run modified code. Otherwise, you can host your files offsite or do this workaround:

      How To Send Attachments in Private Messages (workaround)

      On this forum you'd go up to User CP and then Attachments is near the bottom. You could just copy the link instead of opening it in a new window like in the video.

      Also, when you create your fake reply and upload your file, you will get an attachment code like [*ATTACH]4630[/*ATTACH]. You can copy this over to your PM.

      Alternatively, if you are using something you have already uploaded as an attachment in another post, look at your User CP->Attachments and mouse over the attachments to look at the links. IT will look like this:
      ht*tp://ww*w.yardlimits.com/forums/attachments/bnsf-railway/9999d1234567890-some-random-file.pdf

      That bold number is the attachment id. In your PM type the attach code with that number (remove the asterisks).
      [*ATTACH]9999[/*ATTACH]
