    I`m trying to upload a file to the download section, but I keep
    getting an error message. Is 3.9MB too big for that section?

    It`s a PDF but in a RAR pretty much like the other files I`ve
    uploaded (unless I did something peculiar this time round, which is
    always possible....) The only difference I can see at present is
    that this file is larger. I`ll give it another try and put a couple
    screenshots up to see if that can make any better sense of it. If it
    doesn`t work I`ll try splitting it up into smaller RAR files and see
    if that does it.

    I thought it might be the length of the filename, but that wasn`t
    it. I tried uploading the PDF file and it gave me the same
    error. Unfortunately, the error isn`t much help: "The upload failed!
    Upload error."

    However, uploading the RAR in thirds worked, so the document is in
    the Supplements section of the Downloads area. If someone could
    download it and unRAR it just to make sure here aren`t any hitches,
    I`d appreciate it.

    At this point I think it has to be the size of the file that is the
    problem. Maybe it has to do with the settings for my login ID? Is
    there a maximum file size upload by account? It seems to me there
    was at some point....

    Though the files are up, I`m having trouble uploading an image to
    serve as the download icon. After I browse to the location of the
    JPG (32kb, jpeg format) and hit the "Add Image" button, the screen
    goes white and then nothing. It`s not a big deal, but it would be
    nice to have the covers and title page serve as icons for those three
    files. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    When I try to upload an image using Explorer (I normally use Firefox)
    it reports an error message: HTTP 500 Internal Server Error.

    hmm i see...
    i guess its indeed time to go for the big upgrade.
    I have been testing with the new vbulletin, the newest version of mediawiki,
    and a new bridge between them.. and i am quite happy with the result so far.
    it really looks nice. (and foremost its compatible with the latest PHP
    versions.. the old scripts are just falling apart)

    tomorrow i will test some more to see if i can get the portal page up and
    running. If so, dont be surprised to see a new forum soon

    It is odd. I didn`t have any problem uploading graphics last
    time. What`s changed in the last 3 months that might result in that
    error? It doesn`t seem like an upgrade issue....

    yes, right before the move we had a server software upgrade with a new
    version of PHP.
    lots of PHP functions became deprecated or required code adjusts.
    I think i had to edit like 40 or 50 file to make everything work again
    without error.
    So this is probably the cause of that as well

    I couldn't download the files, I tried to extract them to my BR folder but it didn't seem able to find the file that I was clicking on to extract. Very odd.

    The covers came off fine though.
