Attached is a picture I have posted else where on the site that is visible within the text. Re-posted here, the image is replaced by a download tag.
Now tell me nothing has changed. Admin may not have changed the settings, but something is clearly different.
I suspect that the change happened during the last few days, as I am sure the last image I posted to "Components, Arduino Motor Control Project Help" was visible when I posted it. However, I can prove something has changed since the 13/3/2012, as this is when I last successfully posted an image to the site that appeared within the text and is still visible.
(Question: When did you last upgrade the site phpBB software?)
For your information the attached image is 408*306 pix and is 20.5KB .jpeg compressed.
The exact same image is visible in the text in: Suggestions and Feedback Anachronistic site rules.
It is not even the biggest image I have posted that is visible in the text.
I would suggest it would be better to define a limit on the attachment file size, than it is to limit the size by pixel area. The latter is clearly not working, as the apparent size of the image in the text seems to have little to do with its reported pixel area, with large pictures sometimes posting as relative small size images, and the reverse also being true. I assume that it is the former you wish to control, as this indicates the disk space occupied on the Maplin server.
It is worth note, that judging from the comments at the phpBB web site, the issue of attachments and image files is a hot topic, with lots of fault reports.
