Problem uploading picture - resolved

Postby gaz » 27 Jan 2017, 1:47pm

Trying to upload, pic within usual 256KB limit.
Untitled.png
Error

No option to place in-line, little yellow triangle brings up a message "Error Failed to move uploaded file."

Any thoughts?

Resizing gradually smaller has been unsuccesful until I reached 128KB :( .

Looks like we're down to half measures, I blame Brexit.

We are seeing some cunning methods used in the attempts to get helmet threads into the open forum.

Where shall we put the new rubbish bin?

Helmetless pictures are similarly restricted.

Seems to have been a file permissions issue: if your file was small enough not to need resizing it was OK, but the resize was failing for larger images.

I think it's all OK again now. File size limit is 256KiB (256 × 1024 = 262,144 bytes) as before.
