It was probably wrong or out-dated by firmware changes.

In viewtopic.php?f=63&t=198941 I explain how to use the five standard SPI interfaces.

The topic was explaining how to use any free GPIO pin on the PI and convert it to SPI chip select and not only the 5 standards.
I tested them and they worked very fine! Now it is very strange to be removed that easy. I posted them as anyone would benifit from something like that.

No idea why this post was deleted, looked through last weeks log files, (about 30 pagers or so) but could not find the deletion.
searching for "Howto: Extending the SPI's chip select pins on RPI 3" does mention some other posts discussing this topic (in case it was renamed), but yes the topic "Howto: Extending the SPI's chip select pins on RPI 3" seems to have vanished, no idea why.
