Gallery, Files, and Attachments
« on: June 25, 2011, 02:42:11 PM »
Some files in the gallery have very long file names. The Gallery script then adds a bunch of letters and numbers to that. Unfortunately, I can't back up these files via ftp. So please keep the file names short! This would apply to any file you upload, though I haven't seen any excessively long file names except in the gallery.

How long can they be? I don't know! But this one is too long:
10 Industrial Accident Game10 Correlation Mix 2 by Random_McWinky.mp3
Which becomes:
1227_10_Industrial_Accident_Game10_Correlation_Mix_2_by_Random_McWinky_mp358881094adad1a7a4081c62eae56342d_extmp3

That is good information to know.

Can a banner or notice be placed to remind people to keep the names short?

I am going to ask for help coding a restriction on the length of the file name. So if you upload a file with a long name it will be rejected. Also SMF 2 is out and as soon as TP is ready we will upgrade, so this will do for now.

Can the banner or notice be moved to where you upload files instead of above the recent posts?

Later. After we upgrade to SMF 2.

Anyway, I have learned the restriction is in Windows, so for now I'll just move my back-up folder to a shorter path.

there's still spelling mistakes, like right below your username and above the 'home/forum/reactor'.... and secondly, I think in the forum page, on top of the categories.

when you log in, look above that menu, I see: "News: Before uploading files, please read this: Galley, Files, Attatchments"

Ok, I had that there in some themes and removed it, I guess I missed your theme.

Yes at first I used the in-built news fader, it has to be activated for each theme, and some themes did not have it at all. Which is why I switched to this version.


* ...WillyP... is lacking ambition to fix code or themes seeing we are close to upgrading to SMF 2.0.

It is above the 'Recent' block. He is talking about the news fader, which appears above this section in Dusky 2.
