    Trouble with Uploading Files in "LOCKED" PRO Forums

    It seems like that since the last site update I have had trouble uploading pdf's in the "LOCKED" Pro Forums. I have tried it in several of the "OPEN" forums and have had no issues.

    I can get files to upload to the "LOCKED" forums only if I use the "Basic Uploader" in the manage attachments "Add Files" tile.

    Using the normal upload files procedure in Add Files, results in an error.

    I have read that others are also have uploading issues, so I don't think it is my computer.

    Just thought I would throw this out for someone to look at.

    Thanks for your time.

    Maybe IT will have a better idea than what we are using now.

    They monitor this forum.
    It seems now some of the uploading issues have been resolved by the IT guys (Thanks IT), but I have a new question on this subject.

    Why did the file size for uploading pdf's decrease from 9 mb to 1.9 mb? That will seriously limit what can be uploaded in the pro forums.

    Is Admin actively trying to limit the number of uploads by reducing the file size ?

    Can I re-visit this subject again without getting anybody too upset? Uploading pdf's has been harder because the max file size has decreased.

    First, I want to thank Dad again for increasing the file size of uploaded pdf's to 4.77 mb last month.

    Before the last site update, the pdf file size was 9.2 mb, then after the update it dropped to 2.9 mb.

    Dad changed it to 4.77mb, and I was wondering if there is a reason why it didn't go back to 9.2mb.

    If this change is for a reason, I will accept that, but I was just hoping for an answer.

    So if there is any chance to knock on the door of the "IT" guys and ask this question, I would greatly appreciate it.

    As always, I thoroughly respect all the hard work that goes on to make this site #1.

    Thanks for your time.
