Posting Photos: Update (Sept 2009)

Posting Images

As you hopefully now know there are various ways to post images :think: :

1. In public gallery: For all to see. To see image in post, right click near top of your image and copy the link, paste in post and do the <img> bit; Also see http://patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=119.
2. In private gallery: Here you can set up your own sub directories and upload. To see image in post, right click near top of your image and copy the link, paste in post and do the <img> bit i.e. same as above. Also see http://patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=119
3. Attachments: Easiest, but here you can’t put text between pics.

Now, most of you prefer the latter, and this has flooded the server. :hiding: I have made a few changes as follows:

• Increased attachment quote to: 200 Mb (was 50 Mb)
• Increased max. file size to: 1 Mb (was <500 Kb)
• Increased the maximum attachments per post to 10 (was 3)

Hi John,

When I try to upload photos I get a message saying 'file type not allowed". Photos are .jpg format and less than 130kb. Could you assist please - I have changed the upload settings as well. I tried other formats of file extensions as well (like.bmp) but nothing seems to work.

Please :helpsign:

Hello John,

Dis eintlik ek wat gisteraand die posting van Frans se rekenaar af gemaak het - ek kom nie reg nie. Ek wil vir Frans wys hoe om fotos te upload en post want hy kom nie reg daarmee nie. Ek het al sy settings gaan check & verander in sy user control panel maar geen fotos wil oplaai nie. En die server "moan" spesifiek oor die "file format" - nie size of iets anders nie.

Kan jy raad gee asb - en dalk van jou kant af ook kyk of al sy user settings reg is?? Ek gebruik die Ifranview software om die fotos kleiner te maak & save voor upload - maar willie saamwerk nie.

Groetnis & Dankie

Nee nog steeds nie reggekom nie - en ja dis net op Frans se rekenaar. Ek het geen probleem met fotos post nie - ek gaan volgende keer die fotos nog kleiner maak (onder 100kb) en kyk of dit iets doen - maar wat my pla is die server moan oor die file type - nie size nie.
