Talk about List of uploaded files

Is this the prelude to ppl being able to upload files?

The sequence for uploading files is available now, in the section under Editing pages.

By the way, due to various lazy reasons, I'm no longer persuing my art-based wiki. I was wondering if you would be interested in the Perl script as I deviated it. It comes with a CSS file and some images - all tailored to that black and orange look I like, but easily bent to your own will.

Feel free to email it to me at, if you'd like. I should probably put a notice up that this site isn't a giant file upload area, and my space isn't unlimited. Files and pictures are certainly welcome, but I can't handle hundreds and hundreds of pictures…of the type that IMBJR is certainly famous for. :)

I shall e-mail my script.

No worries concerning a potential flood, I'm only interested in putting some core SubG template pieces here and anything that may illustrate future articles with a view to keeping file sizes down.

You of course can limit the size of the file being uploaded. However, my web server would rather gracelessly report "CGI Internal error: 413 Request entity too large" and no manner of convincing it to use the 413 template worked.

Good point, I hadn't thought of that. I took a look at the upload limit, and there seems to be no difference in the size of an article and the size of an uploaded file; the same setting governs the maximum size of each. So for the time being, I set the maximum filesize (and article size) to 32K; this should be more than enough for just about any file and/or page here.

Good. I hope that doesn't cause a problem with the stuff I've already uploaded … nop, just checked. Interestingly, I just exceeded the 10(?) connections in a given time frame limit - you will see from my Perl script that I bumped that up to 40 - but that was because I had a gallery of images that was stressing the number of connections permitted.

I just realised that the uploaded files list is not automatic. I shall have to add what I've got to it, but anyone accessing the page after a certain number of images have been added to the page may encounter that 10 connections limitation.

On second thoughts, that limitation will not be triggered as you've wisely linked to them instead of thumbnailing them.
