Also... how do I get rid of the link at the bottom which goes to a website that finished like ten years ago?

Yeah it must be, that's how I added it I guess but I just couldn't figure out how to remove it and got frustrated... but then I get annoyed every time I see it. Thanks mate.

Not sure, but I think image attachments have been disabled as they are mostly responsible for the db exceeding the size limits.

Use Imgur instead!

Getting errors with some formats of image? So this screenshot uploads, but not the image I took...

So maybe there's a limit on the file size for images? Taking a screenshot of the image works (the file size difference is 2.5mb for the original photo, 850kb for the screenshot). They are both .jpg so I don't think the file extension is the issue

Dont upload images. Its killing Dissensus. Upload to imgur and then use the image tag to embed.

Ive noticed an issue - certain characters not showing correctly. like ’ for an inverted comma.

Its probably to do with character encoding in the DB, its should be set to UTF 8. Conversion errors like this usually pop up when handling UTF8 data as ISO-8859-1 data.

yeh I spotted that one - i think we will need a big old C&P across teh DB, or possibly a change to the DB format. I'm planning to ask my SQL guru to give me a hand with that one of these days when i have a bit of head space (haha like that's ever gonna happen!), unless anyone else knows that branch of arcane lore?

do you think? i thought that images are saved in a folder on the server, and just referred to by the MySQL

My concern about embedding (especially of your graphic epic thread for e.g.) is that if the hotlinks die then the threads won't make sense any more, i was pondering how to save that wonderful thread in particular

this is something you notice as you comb the archives eg where people have used imageshack and photobucket and things. will imjur die before dissensus?

Sufi... I fucked up in the events thread and created three posts for the same thing - feel free to destroy the two that aren't the top one, I can't seem to do it myself somehow. Apologies.
