Photo & Attachment Explanation Purpose & differences explained
Posted 27 December 2009 - 05:21 PM
After messing with it for a while, I think it is the 10KB requirement that is hanging up the upload, or at least keeping the upload from displaying. When I take a photo down to the required size (or 120 X 90), if I try to get the KB count down far enough it becomes garbage - well, worse than the original. The present avatar is 84 KB in size and displaying. Go figure.
Hmmm. The avatar magically changed when I reloaded the current page. Wouldn't show any change on the change avatar page.

Actually its 15kb. The avatar images get cached by your browsers when you upload new ones - I can't help that. You can always clear your cache.
We aren't putting people on the moon here boys

I haven't used that so I'm not sure what's going on there. I'll see what I can find out.

Tried to use zip files, but size constraint makes that not useful. So, I load one photo, get directed to the gallery, click to load one more, then browze, then upload. Repeat and rinse. Sorry, this is a bit frustrating, but I do want to share my photos with WTW.
Back on subject: Now after half a dozen upload cycles, I get a blank screen after hitting 'submit', the URL says: http://www.wanderthe...orum/index.php? I tried opening a new window and starting over, but same error. Hmmm?
BTW, my browser is Firefox running on an Imac.
Attachments are not resized
Attachment total file size per post is 500k - so thats 3 photos totalling less than 500k or one photo of 500k or less.
Attachments are displayed as thumbnails and open full sized to whatever dimension they were uploaded as
In my view, the gallery is better for things like trip reports because a user can create an album for a particular trip which will be of interest to other users to browse the albums outside of the trip report thread. Also searching for photos will be valuable for users. Since gallery photos embeded in posts are full sized, trip reports can be posted with inline full sized image which is a format many prefer (but takes a lot longer to load).
Attachments are good if you want to upload very large images (detail shots of campers, schematics etc) that will be initially displayed as thumbnails so the page isn't bogged down with a bunch of huge images. Or if you want to have your trip report photos in thumbnail format, this is the method to use.
Configuring attachments this way results in more choices on how to format photos in threads.
Hope that clears up some confusion.
