Attachment upload issue

Post by DRT »

Glenn E. wrote: 23:38 Mon 07 Feb 2022 the uploader lies. It says a maximum of 500 kb per upload, yet refused these pictures at 250-ish kb each. I had to further reduce them to their current 80-ish kb each, and even then the "select files to upload" button would not work and I had to drag and drop to get them to upload.
Thanks, Glenn, I will investigate this to try to identify the problem.

Thanks.

The image above is 450ish and loaded no problem from my MacBook using Safari.

Are you using Tapatalk or a desktop/Mac?

Your JPEG image titled "0.45Mb (jpeg).jpg) is in fact only 40kB in size.

455KB from Android/Tapatalk fails ("upload failed", no reason given).
- Further testing with Android/Tapatalk seems to fail for me on attempting to load any image attachment of any size whatsoever, so the above is probably not relevant to the attachment size issue.

Very strange, it's working fine now.

This image has been reduced by 50% twice in Paint, which is exactly what I did last time when it wouldn't post.

I was just able to post this same image in the original thread (or rather, get to the point where I would have posted and had been thwarted before) and it worked fine, so it must have been some sort of transient error.
