I have restricted our members use of submitting attachment files and photos for a long tim. reason was
lack of space and to control so it didn't grow to much
Also if images was to large they altered the forum so it was hard to read the posts. One image could destroy a whole thread so to speak.
Now with faster broadband connections its not that important with megabytes
What happen if someone link an image from another site that is large?
I guess that attachments now will be downsized... Please let me know.
I checked my settings and below is what I found out.
PLEASE comment and suggest if you think I should re-think and re-set my settings. The 801 pixels settings has been valuable but is it a difference nowadays? should I increase it.
