  • [Forum] Upload Image Not working-Screenshot


    I have tried to upload a Jpeg image from my computer using the small "Insert Image" icon which can be found when posting in 4.0. All I keep getting after uploading the file from my computer is this"

    Any idea's why this is happening?

    Looks like your image is a bigger file size than your settings allow.

      Sorry about the's not entirely clear what is do I adjust the setting to allow bigger file sizes in the Admin CP? Normally my users upload from Photobucket by cut and pasting the IMG Code tag into the forum when posting but I thought this might be a quicker and better way of doing it.

          Hi again,

          I've had a look there but there appears to not be any setting which limits the size of the file in MB, only how many(which is currently set as 5) I keep getting an upload failed message which is what the little red dot is on the screenshot above. I'd really like to get this feature working as it's a pain having new members join my camera club and then having to show/explain them the workings of Photobucket and cut and pasting links from there onto my forums.

            Admincp > attachments > attachment manager >

            When your in the attachment manager you will see a list of file types, click Go on the right hand side.

            The Max Filesize is in Bytes, so if you wanted a limit of 5MB you would put 5242880

            Click image for larger version

Name:	filesize.jpg
Views:	1
Size:	43.0 KB
ID:	3677462

            Here's a converter to help

            You will use a lot of space if you allow users to upload pictures that size, you should resize pictures for the web if your only displaying them, only pictures that your going to print out need to be large sizes.

              same problem

              I had exactly the same problem right now.

              Tried already:
              1. Increase all attachment setting
              2. Moving attachment to file system

              Still no luck.

              Any idea?

                How big is the file your trying to upload, ?

                Have you made sure your attachments folder is writeable. (chmod 777)


                • #9
                  I try start from 400 Kb down to small jpg 50 Kb, then succeed on 3 Kb image

                  Yes, already doing chmod 777

                    What size have you set in the manager in bytes. ?

                    1 Megabyte = 1048576 Bytes

                      I update all the attachment size to 1048576 (1 Mb)
                      Then when user upload image with 30.5 Kb, it say "Exceed forum quota by 5.2 Kb".

                      Is the any setting somewhere in the CP that I missed?

                        I think I finally found "Message Attachment Options", and all the trouble gone away.
                        Thank you acwatts for your time.

                          Are your user's trying to upload avatar, profile picture or signature picture. ?

                          These are controlled via usergroup setting.

                            Thanks for the replies again.

                            I have managed to sort out the issue by changing the byte allowance in the Admin Cp page you suggested.

                            Thanks for your help ;-)
