Image Size Restriction (4 posts)

    Hi All,

    I've noticed there is a Image Size limit of 2MB.

    I have larger files which I need to post to my site, is there another way of doing this?

    Does anyone know if I upload the images directly to my server via FTP - will they show in WordPress?

    Kind Regards
    James

    There is (usually) nothing stopping you from uploading files (images, whatever) and then hard-coding links to them. You might call this old-stylee web design :)

    However to, in some way, import them into the Media Library using a plugin or theme feature, will require PHP in some way, and that will subject to the similar restrictions. There are ways to change the memory limit - you will need to contact your host about that.

  3. To clarify a little. The size limit is PHP, not WordPress. If you have access to php.ini you can change it yourself. If not, as stated, ask your host.

    There is a DIFFERENCE between memory limit and max file size limit, though, and you may need both to be adjusted.

    Hi All,

    I have changed this file php.ini but it hasn't seemed to have updated wordpress.

    Can someone please assist me?
    It's essential that I upload high res, large photo's

    When I went to change my php.ini file, the maximum upload was 10M but wordpress says 2MB is the upload limit.
    I've changed the limit to 100M in the php.ini file but nothing seems to have happened

    I'd really appreciate some help on this

    Thanks all

    Regards
    James
