  • Remote file uploads?

    Have a question that I'm hoping someone might help with. When I try to use a URL to upload pictures I get an error that remote file uploads have been disabled. I've been through the manual and can't figure it out. I tried looking at my server permissions as well, and my tech person says it's more likely vB.

    I know the answer is going to be something simple, but I need to ask anyway

    That is a server issue. You will need to ask your host to enable this. They will most likely need to set 'allow_url_fopen' to 'On' in php.ini then restart Apache.

      Thanks Steve, I was hoping you'd reply. I read something simular here so I wanted to be sure.

      Thanks again you're the best.
