Private Message Improvements

Post by GiveMeABreak » 24 Jul 2017, 00:10

Just to advise members that we have made some improvements to the Private Messaging System used on the Forum:
  • We have increased the Mailbox limit from 100 to 200 messages
  • We have now enabled image file attachments to be sent in private messages.

All effective immediately.

Thanks for putting in all the extra effort. I did once find that being unable to PM images was inconvenient.

Not sure if it's just me, but the handy automatic image resize for attachments of forum posts doesn't seem to work for images attached to PM's ?

I was trying to attach a couple of images to a PM and after 3 attempts at resizing the image to get it under the file size limit it still wouldn't upload with just an exclamation mark and no error message to say what it didn't like about the file.

I have just adjusted a forum setting which should have fixed this issue.
