MDF Image Upload Attachment size increased

Post by mrix » Fri Dec 01, 2017 7:42 am

Hello all, with so many image hosting sites no longer hosting images for Free many members have decided to start using our very own upload feature where images are attached to posts and actually hosted on our very own MDF `s server.
Unfortunately this has been causing a fair few issues where some member are finding it too complicated and a headache to use, I have however made a few tweaks where the image file size in px was originally limited to 590px width but now has been changed to completely unlimited ::g
The site will now convert all images to a thumbnail image size of 600px which allows all images to stay within the sites theme style layout.
There is however still a file size max limit of 300kb which will help conserve MDF Server hard drive space, this was originally 150kb so this has been doubled in size also.
Just a reminder to say Members are allowed to upload a maximum of 4 images in a 24 hour period using this feature.
Hope this helps with the members who are having problems at the moment using this system ::g


Just to summarise when using the image attachment feature there should no longer be any restrictions on the actual size of the image in width / length and now its only a case of keeping the file size within 300kb.
Cheers all
mrix

Excellent! Having previously had no problems with adding images directly to the site I did last time I had a go but I know you’ve had software issues. This will be a lot simpler now ::g thanks Mrix
