Hi...when I come to add a post I have a knowledge section where I include links to pdfs for the full article...now I've had no problem with pdf's less than 2mb but there seems to be a limit on the isze of media file I can upload (2MB)...this is a little small for me,,,,anyway to tweak this up a little please?!

The 2MB upload limit is a Wordpress setting, not a theme setting. You can find more help with this topic on the Wordpress forums at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-do-i-change-my-upload-limit. Alternatively, you can make the file a smaller size by compressing it.

I've seen those articles and I'm sure they're missing the point....anyway I got round it by uploading the file using ftp to the same place that the media upload would have done ...then created a simple hyperlink from the post to the file ....it was a bit of a faff...but not often will have files bigger than 2mb so its done!

Glad you were able to resolve that with a clever work-around.

PHP by default has a 2m POST limit for form data, your host would have to adjust in php.ini
