    Ever since I updated the application, the custom role of Trial Account I created doesn’t work correctly. The user’s assigned to that group can’t upload images when the “Publish Post” is removed from them. When they upload, the following error appears;

    File is empty. Please upload something more substantial. This error could also be caused by uploads being disabled in your php.ini or by post_max_size being defined as smaller than upload_max_filesize in php.ini.

    However, it isn’t an issue with uploading on the website. Anyone account with the publish permission can upload just fine. I don’t want trial accounts to publish, as the posts they use are sent for preview instead.

    Anyone encounter this?

    Seems to be if a user doesn’t have the ability to publish, then they are stuck with uploading file sizes up to 99kb.

    I’m not using this particular plug-in, but having exactly the same problem. On our site, I’ve opted to use “Enable Contributor Uploads” so that Contributors could add featured images, etc.

    That in itself works, but try to load a file that’s too large – same as yourself, 99kb limit – and we get the same error.

    In other words, looks like it may be an issue within WordPress itself?
