Ocportal 8.1 - need some help on getting thumbnails generated

I am new to OCPortal. Am very impressed with the functionalities provided by the portal. I am trying to upload standard photos ( 1.2M to 1.8M ) pictures into the gallery, I get the following message

" sorry, the image is too large in terms of height and width for us to generate the thumbnail on the server. We can handle an image of size 2016x2016 pixels"

Question: I have used other content management system on the same server and was able to upload much larger pictures and now with OCportal I am getting this error. Is this a setting I can change  to allow it to generate thumbnails?

You can try going to Admin Zone > Tools > OcCLE, and typing something like this:



This will trick ocPortal into thinking it has more memory to work with than it has, effectively disabling the "safety" it leaves around when it calculates maximum tolerable image sizes.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
