We should be able to increase attachment space per thread per group. I tried to upload the company administration documentation manual so my admins could download it and it was to big, and I had no way to allow myself more room
I could imagine per group which is already possible, but per thread? That's a bit overboard.
Anything over 8MB is gonna fail via php upload anyway, and if its larger than that you'd want to FTP it onto the server directly no?
I could perhaps see per forum but only in rare circumstances. Like if it's a computer tech forum where all you upload to most forums is a diagnostic tool output of a text file, so users are limited to say, 10KB, but in the desktop screenshots forum you want to be able to upload 500KB images.
Even there I'd set a max 500 or so.
*Board stopped responding... not sure why it posted two when I was never notified it did one o.O.
Umm.... I believe the limit for a PHP upload is controlled by the Host via config files.
I know it CAN be larger than 8 MB. On my host, I've uploaded 20MB files through IP Board with no problems. My limit is set to a ridiculously high number, though one I would ever attempt to approach.
I did not mean per thread. You can change the total allowed attachment space, but you cant change how much space is allowed per file
