Attachments are inconvenient things; don't use them if you can get away with copying text into an ordinary wiki page. It is not possible to attach files larger than 10Mb. Check in Windows Explorer (PC) or Finder (Mac).
Navigate to the page to which you want to attach the file. Before going into the editor, click on the *Attachments* tab. Type a brief description of the file in the Comments field and click Browse to locate the file to be uploaded into the wiki.
To remove an attachment, click on the Attachments tab and click the Remove button to the right of the file.

You can also create your own groups and add people to them by clicking on the *Manage Users/Groups* tab. It is better to use this feature, rather than granting permission to individuals, as it is a lot less work if you ever need to change the permissions in future.
It is not recommended that you tick Anonymous - anyone, logged in or not, as this would expose your space to mischievous comments from the unscrupulous.
The address of your space is:
