Attachment Test II
I'll pile on here too...Attachment Test III, a zipped PDF file I tried to upload via the "Upload a File" button.
"File is too large" (at 7MB) How do I deal with that? It's a 4 page magazine article I wrote that is pertinent to my upcoming ride.
So one thing i just discovered with the new forum software is that you can not specify different attachment types to have different limits in file size. so if i allow a 10 meg pdf file, it will also allow everyone to upload 10 meg images.
until i get that sorted, you can send me the pdf and i can convert each page into a jpg to post.
What is the current file size limit? In the first days of this forum reboot, I tried one (jpg) that was fairly large and it didn't go. When shrunk to a couple hundred kb, it was OK.
For a screen image, 200 kb is fine and shouldn't be too hard on server space. If someone needs a higher resolution image of something I post, I can always email it or make it available via Dropbox. For the most part, I tend to use something like Photobucket and the picture shows up just fine using just the in-line link. Vastly easier on server space but the downside is that the pictures disappear if I erase from Photobucket or drop my account.
I have no idea how the forum is for available space. Any preference on how large (or small) we should make pictures that are uploaded? I belong to a couple of forums that do not permit image uploads so on-line hosting is the only option.
as of right now I've got the attachment dimensions set to 1024 x 768, and the attachment file size set to 10 megs. it does not seem to look at the dimensions of a pdf, so this will allow us to show decent size pics, and allow us to upload larger pdf files for maps and what not.
Well now...look at this!
In the past, when blogging I would reference my pictures on Picasa (now Google Photos) and they would post in the blog. I haven't found a way to post any of those million pictures since Google Photos took over Picasa! I'll be playing with this site to find a way, or, at least a work-around. The above pic came right from my hard drive as an uploaded file. Probably not the best way to do this. I'll be trying other ways. I'm trying to avoid having to transfer all my photos to another site, i.e., SmugMug or PhotoBucket.
