Audio Files

Hi Brian,

If you go Advanced and then click the paperclip icon, you should be able to upload audio files directly to the forums.

I'm not sure how long this will be available though; as the current set up physically embeds the file into the .sql database file (which makes the database slow!).

Have a go, and let me know how you get on :)

As a last resort, you could just post the link :)

Tried that Stu. It tells me it's not a supported file format. I can't post a link as it's on my computer. Oh well, I'll just have to pee myself in private. :w00t:

Email it to me and I'll throw it on some web-space for you :)

Hey Stu,

Do you not have the forums setup to store attachments, avatars and signature pics in the file system.

Also to store the css as files rather than the database eases up the page loading time as well.

It makes the database much quicker, the tsf forums do that and the pages are like lightening to load.

I've got the instructions booked marked at home if you want them?

Actually, no... and I'm embarrased about it to be honest! :D

I'll be fixing that soon though, as I realise the busier the forums get the slower they're going to be if we're storing it in the .sql.

Would love you to throw instructions to me :D Thanks

yeah, yousendit.com is very helpful

the only thing I would say is that some of the file upload sites don't like it if you are using a 3G mobile broadband card (MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service and RapidShare: Easy Filehosting both spring to mind) and will tell you that you have reached your download limit fo the day even if you've never been on the site before (it's someting to do with the IP address of the card) - so in my opinion its best to use yousendit.com when you can :thumbup1:.
