Attachment size limit increased massively - again

Post by adampembs » Mon Oct 23, 2017 4:15 pm

You can now load files of up to 6MB. This should avoid the need for users to resize their images (in most cases)

This is for a trial period. If it works without issue, we'll carry on with it.

I think you've cracked it this time Adam. ;)

Just seen that Mark has been able to upload his 5.7MB? image to the viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1896 thread, and I've just had a bit of a browse around other forums/topics and all seem to be showing multiple images correctly when in "thumbnail grid view".

Good stuff! - If upping the limit to 6MB doesn't now cause anything else unforeseen, I doubt whether many people at all will now need to resize/compress their images before uploading.

Regards,
Mike.

Hi Mike and Adam,
I have successfully uploaded 3 images around 5.7MB! Many thanks Adam :)
I'm not sure if possible to add multiple photos this size to 1 post?

Kilobytes

I'm doing some test development here before rolling out to the rest of the site. The template inheritance model is quite complex in phpbb.
