Attachment bug?

Postby The Ultimate DooMer » Thu Nov 06, 2003 11:16 am

What's up with the attachment feature? It says I've reached my upload quota of 256kb when I try to attach a 26kb png. I shrunk it to 23kb and it still won't have it.

(on an unrelated note, anyone have any idea of when 53.cab is coming out?)

that means you've attached 256k TOTAL of files for the month or whatever the timeframe is, it's a quote for the timeframe, not per file

Probably the sum of your attachments on all messages in the forums. Maybe each user here is allotted a 256K quota. I'm not sure what phpBB attachment mod Randy's using but the one from Acyd Burn says:
The Quota System is defined as limiting Users/Groups to a defined maximum Storage Limit.
This Limit is not set on a per file basis, it is a general setting, counting the Filesize of all attached Files by the User/Group.

Edit: Look at your user profile and you'll see something like:
[Uploaded: xxx Bytes / Quota: 256 KB / xx% of total]

Moved from bugs to general. You have to delete some of your old attachments to make room for new ones once you reach 256k uploaded total.

I don't mind having a size limit, but what's annoying is that some of these posts are long gone and forgotten, and there's no quick way to find them. Instead of being able to hit a button and be presented with every thread in which I have attachments, I just have to search for Author: HotWax and manually check each and every thread for attached files and images. :( Is there an easier way I'm not seeing?

Actually it is quite easy to view and delete your attachments. If you check in your Member Profile window, you will find on the bottom right this category:

    Download Quota
    User Attachment Control Panel
But, you have to be signed in to see it.
