Uploading Files

Postby Mick D » Sun Jul 16, 2017 4:53 pm

Hi

I tried to upload a file today using the same method as I have done many times previously - I get a message that the file is empty, (it's not as I can open it and view it's contents). It's nothing to do with the Photobucket rip off as I don't use PB.

Has something changed with the site?

Regards Mick

Hello Mick, what size if the file you're trying to upload?
There is a 1 Mbyte limit to the file size for uploads.

If you have an image greater than 1 Mbyte, try reducing it's size using one of the free web based resizing systems such as picresize.com (other are available!).

Thank you for that Mr B!

That reminds me, bring it to Kempton as I want the rim and the w clips back, not forgetting the Hylomar as well.

Seems the uploading of files is working again now. It was down yesterday and earlier this morning. As it now seems to be OK, Eamonn finding nothing wrong now, naturally thought we were trying to upload a file above the file limit size.

It had definitely gone tyres-up yesterday. I always resize my pics to less than 1mb.
All fine now!

Hi Eamonn

I've successfully uploaded the file today - 319.1 Kb without additional re-sizing, guess you've fixed the issue - thanks

Regards Mick
