    I know VB4 and VB3 will resize pics to the maximum values set in Attachments Manager. The limiting factor may be number of pixels height or width, or it may be file size. The problem is as iPhone pictures become larger and larger they now surpass the maximum allowed image size set in the config.php file and may well surpass the maximum file upload size for PHP set on the server. If the image is so large the server won't accept it then VB can't resize it.

    You can try going to the bottom of the config.php and increasing the max image dimensions but the larger it is set the more memory and resources will be used for re-sizing those extra large images.

    Nailed it historic trucks. They need to resize on the back end. This wizardry is in practice on other forums and apps

    Joe is there anyway VB can resize the images as they are uploaded.

    Uploading images so large may cause you to run into disk space limits with your hosts... a better option is asking users to resize images to smaller sizes before uploading.

    I am only new to running a forum on v5.1.10. When first loaded I kept getting the message file to big but with a simple change of file sizes in admincp now anyone can upload any size file.

    This was one of the reasons I choose vb5 easy loading of pictures.

    We are not developing vB4 any further in terms of features. That isn't going to change, I am sorry.

    If the image is too large then you should increase the forum limits in the admincp. Phones create images that are probably too large for your settings.

    It has to be realized that operations must be simple. A user must be able to upload directly from a mobile style without any hurdles.

    File size too large means the image is too large for the forum's attachment settings...nothing to do with the phone.

    Again, to be clear - vBulletin 4 is not under active development, nothing like this is going to be implemented in vB4, at all.
    vB5 it is not needed as you can upload from the normal style. There is no mobile style on vB5, it is a responsive style.

    Correct but you lose all the addons available with 4.2.3. I understand coming up with 5 and moving forward but if vb4 had mobile attachments, it would be the king of the hill and ultimately affect the bottom line for the better. My opinion.

    You should be able to use the normal file upload tools in vB5 on a mobile device.
