Please fix the upload limit message on this forum

Postby lothario » 8. May 2021, 11:25

I've wasted the past 15 minutes trying to upload a screenshot that was too big.

First the forum returned an error that the maximum upload size is 2MB, due to the php.ini setting. So I tweaked my screenshot to bring it to under 1MB.

Then I got a second error message, The file is too big, maximum allowed size is 128 KiB.

At this point, I'll have to use an external image hosting service, but what's annoying is the first misleading message.

Please fix this and set the PHP upload limit to 128KiB and be done with it.

Or get on with the times and allow larger uploads.

The limit is deliberate, it will not be changing.

It exists precisely in order to prevent people from, among other things, uploading excessively high rez and unclipped screenshots.

The confusing error message thing: you should maybe raise that on a phpBB support forum.

And btw: external images are blocked too, for security reasons.
