    How do you download the map of states where you have flown? I found the site to build the map but haven't been able to add the image.

    Thanks!

    Is it an image file (gif, jpg, png) or a pdf file?

    Most stuff I copy then paste into the post, then it appears like magic.

    Pdf, I think. Been too long, nobody answered and I haven't had the need to do it again. I'll try to figure out later what I was up to.

    As you discovered, I don't think there's a way to post a .pdf and have it display directly. You'll have to convert it to an image format first.

    You can upload a file (at least certain file types) but you can't post non-image files (pdf, word docs, excel spreadsheets, etc) inline as an image. Someone will have to click on the link of the attached file, or provide the direct link to the file like you did above.

    Yeah, you got answers, you just weren't specific enough in your op.
