Increase image upload from 40

Hello TXP

How can I increase the 40 upload limit on the images tab?

Re: Increase image upload from 40

I didn’t realize there was a limit? You mean the number of files you can upload in one go? That might be system/connection dependent. Or the total size of uploads? Must admit I’ve never tried uploading more than a small handful.

Re: Increase image upload from 40

Hi Mate,

Yeah when I try to upload more than 40 it only uploads 40. It’s for a photographers website and they upload around 50-100 in one go. Do I need to edit a php.ini file or something do you think?

Maybe. It might be some limit on the maximum payload size. But I thought the images were uploaded in the background via Ajax, one by one. Hmmm. Maybe more testing is required here to see if it’s system dependent or a Textpattern limit.

I’ve just uploaded 51 large images without any problem on localhost.

Re: Increase image upload from 40

I just did 250 × ~8MB JPGs on a web-side 4.8.8 instance, no drama.

Edit: well, the green confirmation dialog is so tall that I can’t see the × to close it…but I can live with that.

Gonna see if 1,000 2,000 works…

Edit: confirmed working with 2,000 images uploaded. Admin-side was semi-DOS’d after I deleted some older images during the second upload session…but I can live with that.

Re: Increase image upload from 40

Thanks for testing, guys. Okay so looks like it’s a system thing on miles’ end. Any thoughts on what it might be?

Re: Increase image upload from 40

(if windows) maybe you need to check file name length, long file name less number of files, short file names many more.

Maybe we should move the x to the bottom? The average user may not know of the escape key.

The average user won’t be uploading that many images…
