    That's five times better than it was before!

    Perhaps ten would be enough.

    OK, I upped it to 10. That should be sufficient. If you have more then you can do them in batches of up to 10. I think other than someone transferring their entire collection in one go, 10 will be more than adequate.

    Thanks, Simon for doing this! Speaking selfishly, since this is the only way I upload my photos, ten is spot on!

    I have made another small tweak to the photo upload. You should now be able to upload directly from your newer mobile phone (at least an iPhone 6/7) without needing to resize or reprocess the image.

    This tweak meant increasing the permitted max resolution (but not the overall file size) a little. RF, if this causes any problems server wise, let me know and I will restore the previous settings.

    I'll have to try that on my 4 year old Android...soon as I figure out how to even attempt it.

    It's pretty much the same as doing it on a PC, Gallery>My Photos> Upload Photo.

    When you hit the button to select a photo it should show the Phones native file selector. On an iPhone, this will allow you to pick from your stored photos on the device or use the camera. On an Android, it should be similar, but probably allow you to access the file system as well.

    This has always been possible, its just that newer phones with better cameras create larger resolution photos which were then ignored in the upload process (no error is show, but the photo doesn't appear in the gallery). I jus increased the allowable resolution to allow this.

    EDIT: small gotcha for those that use the GreyFolio Black theme. The font used in the top menu (where the Gallery button is) is larger for this theme. This means that on a phone (or at least an iPhone) the Gallery button gets obscured by the search field and you cant get to the gallery. A simple work round is to temporarily change your theme to VB4 Default whilst you upload your photos. this has a smaller font and you can get to the gallery button. I'll post some screenshots shortly to explain all this a little better.

    this shows the problem with the Greyfolio skin:


    and this is how it looks on the VB4 Default:

    All users should use the Take Five 4.0.8 skin.
    That's what the site is supposed to look like. Of course we offer 3 other options because we love our members.

    On my Android, the only skin that doesn't cut off the Gallery option is the Take Five.

    Ideally the menu should wrap over 2 lines. I don't think I have admin access to the skins though, otherwise I'd take a look at how it's managed.

    I use the second option, mostly because if I see the Take Five 4.0.8 skin, then I know I am not logged in.


    Anywho, came to this thread for a different question.

    I am reading an old thread with many posts, and won't be able to read it all in one (or even several) sittings. So was wondering if there is a way to bookmark a post as where you stopped in the thread?

    Thanks,

    Each post has a post number in the upper right that is an actual clickable link. You should be able to save that specific link into your bookmarks.

    For example, here is the link for post #481 in this thread. I just picked one at random.

    If you go to that link and do a "bookmark this page", it will take you directly to that post every time.
