Code push imminent!

We're about to pull the lever on tonight's code push! I'll update this post when it's finished. For a reminder of what to expect, check the previous post for the list of changes.

Update: All done! Comment here if you notice any issues that need our attention.

Thanks for all the hard work guys. It's exciting to have image hosting now!

I think I've found a small problem though. I uploaded an image and found I could post it to my journal when I copy and paste the code generated in the "Image Embed" field to the HTML tab on the post entry page, but it wouldn't seem to post with the code generated in the "Thumbnail Embed" field.

I figured out the problem - the last bit of the code is missing a quotation mark (') in the "Thumbnail Embed" field as per this example: alt='' title='Train/> instead of alt='' title='Train'/> as per the "Image Embed" field code. I find when I add the missing quotation mark it works. It's the same for all sizes selected in the "Thumbnail Embed" field.

I've only uploaded the one image so far for testing purposes, so I'm not sure if it's just that one or all images. Hope that helps anyway...

P.S. I'm quite new to Dreamwidth and I have to say the site has such a nice feel. It's very refreshing!

Eagle eyes!

Just pushed out a temporary fix that should help for now. Thanks, let us know if you see anything else!

And just like that it's fixed! Thanks Mark, will do, but it looks like it's all working gorgeously now. :)

Actually I do have two questions - what is the limit in terms of number of images you can upload for each account type, and is there a maximum file size the uploader will take?

The limit is not in number of images, but in total size; the size is 500MB, currently for all account types.

Not sure on the size limits for the uploader.

(I have an updated faq on this drafted but will not be able to get it live until later today - the joys of lab work on a different continent to most of the volunteers and team! I WAS awake at the 5am code push, I was just getting ready for work...)

Hehe no problem. I'm in NZ and this was all happening around dinner time Monday night for me. Will check out the FAQ tomorrow, thanks. :) It's bed time for me now.

Hi kaberett - I just read the updated FAQ re image hosting. Can I clarify something - it says the maximum file upload size is 500MB (huge!), is that also how much the storage space is for each account? Thanks. :)

The 500MB is the storage space quota for each account! (I'll make that clearer in the FAQ.) We'll probably be able to increase the quota -- at least for paid/premium paid/seed accounts, and possibly also for free accounts -- in the future, but we wanted to start conservatively.

Ah thanks Denise. :) I just checked one of my LJ accounts that I have TONS of images uploaded to to see approximately how much that would be, and it would appear that I'm only up to 214MB on that account. So 500MB should allow most people plenty as long as the images aren't all massive. It looks like the embedded images load really quickly when they're clicked on too - all very promising! :)
