I have increased the size of of the images that can be uploaded, it is now 6MB for a single photo

This should automatically be resized to a maximum of 1920 x 1200 resolution so 5MB down to 0.5MB as an example.

Any image above 6MB will be rejected

Any problems or unexpected results, please message me.


Thanks
Ian

:D ;) :roll: :?

Do these show ok ?
Or can give me an example page that doesn't look right, I didn't finish until 3am this morning so may have missed something.

For me it is faster, but I'm on the same network as the server, but please keep an eye on it,
It should be faster as gone from 2 cores to 6 faster cores and on SSD's

Also the upload speed has gone from 7Mb to 20Mb

The backups are about 3 times faster :)

Barry requested it years ago to change L. O. L emoji to the text you see, have to give him an ear ache and I remove it ;)

Much slower for me too and sometimes it seems to get stuck and stops responding completely, so have to reload the forum.
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".
