Hi All

Not many people using the gallery where you can have your own gallery to upload your fishy photos !
You can also comment on and rate users photos.
If you are having any problems uploading etc please let us know and we will try and help out.

Cheers
Saul

Paul,

We can set the max file size if it isn't enough but you need to tell us if it is not working :D

Cheers

I tried an upload and it got rejected - file too large - think it was about 600k, I am at work at the moment so will need to check later.

OKa, I have just checked the server settings and the max_file_upload is 8mb. The max time to upload a file in any one upload is 2 minutes. The time any script has to parse data is set to 1 minute.

If you are outside of these parameters, then it will fail. What is the extension of the file you are looking to upload ?

Code:
max_execution_time = 120     ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = 60   ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data


Hope this helps

Barry

A good guide for uploading pics for the gallery would be to re-size them if you can to
max 800 pixels wide or tall at a resolution of 72dpi.
Images of this size will upload quickly and be of the right size for the forum/website.

Cheers
Saul

Its probably a size issue (width by height) as it was well under the 8mb.

I'll sort it out later and let you know the result.

OK got it sussed out now.

Maybe I am missing the obvious but I didn't even know the gallery existed!

Its quite a few clicks from the main page and doesn't seem to have the benefit of the rest of the forum where new posts have the yellow tick so I didn't realise people had been updating it with new pics.

I would reckon, I am sure in the world of web design there is a max number of clicks that key items should be from the homepage!

I like the latest public pics preview, as even the personal galleries are "public" could they be included also?

Perhaps a small random selection of all pics?

Paul,

I agree, the problem is that this is a script which uses a database and not a simple webpage....There are various hacks and mods we can install but we need to test them before rolling them out as live.

I will see what i can do...

Cheers

Barry

I think the Public Gallery is great - Just so long as it doesnt end up like the "Carpy.co.uk" gallery...
Went on it last week and was very surprised to see several hardcore porn images on peoples personal galleries - Dont get me wrong; I like porn just as much as the next man, but I dont want my fishing-daft 9 year old daughter to see images like those I mention !!
