Uploading pics

Post by Steve »

Dunno if others have noticed, but uploading photos results in error messages if the file name is too long. Ran into that problem a couple of times this week. :bash: I don't know what the maximum file name length is, but maybe a warning in the posting instructions would help.

There is a vague warning in bullet 4 under Highlights of the the Image Uploading instructions link More detail. Sounds like it depends on an individual user's device, OS and browser combination as much as the ReelTalk software and our server PHP version. Refer to Length Restrictions at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filename

Accurate advice:
Try to keep file names short. You may get a warning or your photo may not upload if they are too long.

I added the warning after you let me know, Paul.

Got a spare reel stamped "Pflueger" or a Montague Imperial?
