MDF Software has been upgraded

Post by mrix » Mon Jan 08, 2018 2:49 pm

Hello all, just a heads up to say later this evening I will be upgrading the MDF`s forum software version, the good News is that it addresses the recent image issues many of us having been having ::g
We will likely have a few additional issues which normally come along with these upgrades and if you notice anything please let me know by posting a reply in this topic ::g
Thanks all
mrix

Hey mrix,
What a great forum, thanks for helping it run smooth

I just posted a pic for ID and it would not let me send it as it was "too large"
It was a regular photo that I took from my phone. No problem as I made the file size smaller and off it went. Just thought I'd mention.

Cheers
Jim

Hello Jim, there will still be size limits that images will need to stay within, mobile phones and other devices can create images that are huge in quality file / pixel size which take up far too much hard drive space etc, sometimes simply lowering your devices image quality setting works and still gives a suitable quality image to be used here ::g

The prior issue we had was with jpg image files not being seen at the correct size so members were not being able to attach them etc, we had a quick fix where the images had to be changed to a different format like gif / png but now this issue has hopefully been resolved ::g

One site I visited frequently ( "classical" topic) started as blogger, then moved to wordpress, and over about ten years built up a troupe of fine commentators , troll slayers, a very large mailing list and audience ... then one day announces it will move to a new modern platform, going on facepalm style. Straight off, as people checked out the new site, they reported back all its errors, but still he closed the wordpress format. Result - comments went from 20-100 down to 0-20 ( even after several months), most of the old commentators didn't follow. No sitestats to judge pageloads, but just complaints that the site was slow, gimmicky, poorly laid out, too much image, poor comment system, poor notifications, unusable mailing etc. In short it ended all the site was.

I know mrix is strict :D , but has to be to keep the site on track .... too easily taken for granted.

I have broken it Mrix, Your software update will no longer allow me to post more than one attachment whether inline or otherwise. They all show fine in the preview but all but one disappear from the attachment list and post. x;

I have not tried it myself but I noticed yesterday a newbie had said he posted 3 attachments but only one showed so he had to do 3 different posts to show them all so it looks like Easylife is not alone with this problem.

EDIT: Just found the thread his comment of "Did put several images first post but only one has shown. Here's more" was on it was this one
viewtopic.php?f=33&t=97390
But notice all the attachments have been removed, possibly because of my comment about them showing exactly where his permission was!.
