File Upload size limitation

#1
To the Administrator:
The upload file button is now present below the text editor... Thank you!
However in trying to upload only a 1.2Mb file ( which is quite small) - An error message is displayed indicating it exceeds the size. Can the file limit be increased to allow something reasonable - such as 10MB which would at least allow for a small gif animation to be uploaded. If you want folks to share logic projects I would suggest something much higher. Please advise us of your thoughts and final conclusion.

Edit: after testing it appears the current file upload limit is set to 1MB.
Thanks

While I can understand the convenience such a service might bring, unfortunately there is a cost aspect related to traffic/bandwidth which would at present make it financially impossible to host larger files to be downloaded by anyone interested. The LUG is run voluntarily, using both purchased forum software, as well as hosting which comes with a monthly cost.

Two suggestions: Would you be prepared to pay a monthly fee to be able to upload larger files, or, as an alternative, why not simply use dedicated cloud services such as dropbox?

kind regards

Mark

p.s. I moved this thread to the more appropriate"discuss the LUG" sub forum.

I agree with Mark, but luckily we have just found a new way to host the forum and deal with server space.

Plus I noticed your gif examples are extremely well made and useful so I think we should increase the limit to at least 2MB

Thank you very much!!!!! That will certainly address my concerns and allow for more comprehensive and complete examples ( plus it makes it easier so I don't have to post twice)
