Upload attachment?

Postby tmathews » Sat Nov 13, 2010 9:11 pm

I just noticed -- are we no longer able to upload images that display in forum threads?

It still works for me...did you check again? Do you have the upload attachment tab when you click on post reply?

Yes but there is a a size limit of 340 kb or 350 kb. Resize your attachment and try again.

I do, but this is what it does instead of displaying the photo. I tried using Firefox and IE 8.

It's doing this because of a small change I made in the forum settings a while back.

If a photo an attached photo is wider then 850 pixels, it displays a paperclip. The size limit used to be 1024. Probably no harm in changing this back since most people use a 1024pixel width screen resolution now, or higher.

Aha. So, if I try to upload an image that is larger than 1024 pixels, will it display as a paperclip now instead of rejecting the upload?

Actually, not right now because the max upload has always been 1024pixels. I've set that to keep attachments from chewing up too much disk space.

FYI - I'm probably going to migrate 14ers.com to a larger server in a couple of months so we'll have more resources to increase settings like this.
