Full Version: How to control the minimum allowed file size of Attached images
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello,
 
I am wondering if there is a way to control the minimum file size of image attachments. Currently, I receive the following message when I upload an image larger than 500kb

The file "test.jpg" is too large. The maximum size for that type of file is 500 kilobytes.

I have been digging through the dashboard looking for a setting, as well as old forum posts looking or an answer unsuccessfully. Does anyone know if there is such a setting, or is this something I need to change in my database?
 
Any advice would be much appreciated. I just got my forum set up and I’m trying to get acquainted to managing it.
 
Thanks,
Pete

Are you looking to change the Maximum , or the Minimum file size ?


Adjustments can be made in your admin control panel

Hi,

go to Admin Control Panel -> Configuration (Tab) -> Attachment Types (left column) -> and press "Options" of the desired file you want to change. -> Edit

In the new page change the "Maximum File Size (Kilobytes)" field for the value you want and press the "Save Attachment Type" button at the bottom.
