XF 1.1 Why can't I add a 1.1mb avatar?

    It keeps giving me an error, filesize too large. Even when I try to upload it from the AdminCP. Seems ridiculous that 1.1MB would be too large.

    What have you set for maximum avatar size?

    It's a user group permission.

    I have it set as unlimited for my usergroup. It's an animated .gif if that makes a difference.

    What's the exact error that you're receiving?

    I don't think Animated Avatars are supported. Are they?

    They are on my forums using imagemagick.

    They're still supported in that they're valid images -- you just get the first frame in GD.

    It could also be a PHP limitation it would be this line when viewing phpinfo

    The left value is local set and the right is the master set point. So this tells me I can upload a max of 20 MiB at a time.

    To see this value you can create a file called phpinfo.php and put it some where on your host. Use the following code inside of it

    Sorry for only getting back to this now, and thanks for the help guys.

    Yes, the forum is using imagemagik and Xenforo 1.1. There are dozens of other members with animated avatars.

    This is the error I get when trying to upload via the Admin CP:
    413 Request Entity Too Large

    This is a limitation configured in your web server -- you host has limited the size of the request body. They would need to increase that.

    Are you using cpanel? you might change max_file_upload and post_max_size

    If you are using nginx, you might change client_max_body_size in nginx.conf

    Thanks guys, I'm not the server admin so I'll have to speak with him about it.
