Upload from a URL
We're having some problems with a small number of members on our site not being able to upload images in the gallery and we've no idea why? We can uplaod the images for them from our end and it all goes OK, but whenever they try they timeouts or blank screens etc. They upload their images on other sites, flickr etc, and don't get the same problem uploading. The majority of users seem to have little/no problems uploading
So I was wondering, is it possible to upload form a url so they can upload images in the gallery from the other sites?
Also any suggestions on how we can fix their problems would be a big help
Running Mysql 4.0.27, PHP 4.4.4, vbgallery 2.2, vB 3.6.3
Any ideas? Only 1 view and no comments in 4 days. Do the mods read these boards or should I be posting elsewhere?
The only problems I have had with uploads and users.
If the upload is larger than what your server allows via PHP.
If you set a file type say MOV to 10MB and your PHP settings on the server are set to 2MB
PHP Maximum Upload Size 2.00 MB
When 2MB is reached the server will halt the upload.
I have plans to work on an "upload from url"
Thanks for the info Zach
One of the users is having problem when uploading anything over 100kb, but almost everyone else is doing fine with up to 1MB
upload from URL would certainly make it easy for us to get users to import their flickr images and keep everything on te one site.
if the user has a slow connection AND the upload AND the manipulation takes longer than the php script execution timeout.. it will give similar porblems.. I have that problem when i'm on the road with my laptop and only have an ordinary telephone modem with a 33kb connect..
gives me a 1.5kb/s upload.. a 100kb file can take over a minute.. and my php execution timeout is 30 secs..
Well anyway upload from url would certainly be great..
but while you are at it.. i'd have a couple of more requests in the same direction... :cool:
1. zip upload for images.. (there are some out of the box routines in google)
2. upload by mail (dreaming is allowed)
I read somewhere how flickr does it:
mails sent to a specific addy go into a queue.. and a php program grabs everything in that queue, does the manipulation and dumps it into the user directory and updates the database...
(but i fear that would be very custom programming as it would only work on dedicated servers and would need modifications according to every single server..)
