    You must be a registered member to add files to FreewareBB: REGISTER HERE.

    Here's the quick-start way of adding a download to our site, further down is a more detailed look at adding freeware.

    1. Drill down to the category that your freeware belongs to from the download section HERE,
    2. Hit the "Upload File" button,
    3. Enter the details of your freeware (i.e. Title, description, direct link to the download, screenshot, etc),
    4. Note that you can enter a link to your own site for the download and screenshot or if your file is 5Mb or less you can upload it to our servers; you can also enter or upload more than one download location (mirrors, etc) as well as offer more than one screenshot,
    5. Once done, hit the "Add Submission" button and your freeware will be checked by a member of staff before being approved.

    Here's a more detailed look at adding a download to our site.

    1. First of all, enter our download system from the Navigation bar at the top of the site.

    2. Next, you need to decide which category best describes the freeware you wish to submit. Simply click on it to enter the category, or any sub-category. In our example, we're adding a download to the "Audio/Video Presentation" category.

    3. Next, click the "Upload File" button to continue.

    4. Now we're ready to start entering the details of your post. First of all enter the title of your post (usually this is the name of the freeware) and then give as much detail as possible about the freeware, such as features and so on (as in Fig 1.4).

    5. Scrolling further down the page again reveals more options ... from these boxes you can actually upload the file to our servers although to maximise the browsing experience for everyone we would ask that you only upload files to our servers when there are no alternative links available. For example, if you have a direct download link we would ask that you provide that link in the "Link to File" box rather than uploading it to our servers. This helps spread the load of downloading across a multitude of sites and maintains an excellent browsing experience for everyone using our board.

    PLEASE ALWAYS ATTEMPT TO USE DIRECT LINKS TO FILES (i.e. www.somesite.com/somefile.zip)

    We can alternatively host your file for you free of charge if you are unable to provide a direct link or your file is too big to be uploaded to the site, and in this case please contact us for further details.

    Once you've given the necessary details, simply hit the "Add Submission" button and details of your file will be sent to a member of staff to authorize - this can take up to 24 hours though is usually much faster.
