I have given the site a bit of a re-design as some of the features weren't working properly and I had to start from scratch. I hope you all like it, please let me know any comments in the new feedback forum :claphands:

The good news is that the gallery works now! The old images aren't back on there yet, but I will try and add them back if possible :goldfish:

What seems to be the problem DrCase, I'll take a look at it and try to help you upload :pooh:

Are you using this page to upload the files?

https://www.gardenpondforum.com/photoplog/upload.php

Just browse to the photo on your computer, pick a category then add a short title and optional description and it should post the image to the gallery :)

Does this suggested posting place post them into the Gallery, or where his messages are? Also, does the Gallery accept JPG?

The gallery accepts JPG's - you can also attach images to posts by clicking "Post Reply" or the "go advanced" button on the quick reply box.

I see what you mean now - I've added JPG to the forum upload list, so it should now work ;)

Thank you for this improvement regarding the photo upload formats permitted. This should make a lot of folks happy and bring lots of great photos to the Forum.;)

PS
I just looked at the file limits for JPG and JPEG and they are set at 146KB. The PDF limit was about 3.1MB. With a limit that low each member would only be able to post 1 small photo before their quota was used up. Disk storage space should not be that scarce, can you please review this?

Don't worry that limit is just per file, and you can upload quite a few at a time on the upload form ;)

You will have to re-size them to about 500 pixels wide to get them small enough with this low limit. Unfortunately that makes the pictures about half page width.

150KB should be plenty for a JPG image - I can't make it any larger unfortunatly as it would take up too much space.

As DrDave suggests, 500px wide would be fine for posting within the forum. If you upload images to the gallery then it should re-size automatically if the filesize is too large.

It means they are in a queue to be checked, but I've enabled them for you - in future you should be able to upload them without this :)
