There were problems with the old file upload page where files were restricted to 200KB and if someone tried to upload files larger than this limit it produced a nasty (untrapable) Error.

This limit is set by our ISP host provider for security reasons and on shared hosting platforms, like ours, they are reluctant to encrease this limit.

I have re used the uploader page/script i use for the rest of the website (it uses a different coding approach), this gets round the limit and now allow unlimited uploads.

The unlimited upload is now a problem !.. as it could affect user experiance of the site as posts struggle to download, resent large image files, i will likely look to impose a restriction on image inserts as this more prone to page loading delays that attachments - with attachments the forum pages will laod quicly as it will only load a link to the file.

Clicking on an insert attachment or insert image will now present the below screen, hopefully use should be intuative!, feel free to report any issues.
