    i tried to upload a picture from my cell phone to my board, and it said the picture was too big. is there a way to set some sort of auto resize function, or some sort of option to resize it, when someone tries to upload a picture?

    Add this to your config.php file.

    $config['maxImageResizePixelCount'] = 30000000;

    What does this means?

    $config['maxImageResizePixelCount'] - default: 20000000
    The maximum size of an image (in total numbers of pixels) that XenForo will attempt to resize. Images larger than this will simply not be resized and thus may be rejected. This is calculated using width × height.

    Very good @Nuno!
    Personally, I'm trying to be sure to let people know what an instruction like that does instead of just telling them "Add this in your config.php".
    Serves a dual purpose - it helps them, and it also lets that person and others figure out what it did/does. I'm even trying to remember to do it when I give info pertaining to OS help (but that can get rather detailed so usually just post a link).
