File size too large (after setting file size)

Post by morkus » Tue May 29, 2018 11:57 am

I created a PDF extension and set the size to 1 MB (also tried 1,000 KiB).

Then, clicked submit.

Success.

Yet, when I try to upload just a 467 KB PDF to a posting, I get the error that the file size is too large. In the other screen, I set the "pdf" file type to be this new "PDF" extension group.

How to resolve this?

Thanks,

There should already be a "pdf" extension in the Documents group.

I probably didn't need to create a separate PDF group, but I wanted to just enable '.pdf'.

The "File Too Large", which was the point of my posting appears to have been that the main attachment settings overrides everything. Once I "upped" that, the PDF uploaded fine.

Thanks
