Bill,

I may have been able to find the code and slap an if statement in there to send the admin an email, but most site owners end up getting an email service to handle all the emails which cost money for every 1000 emails sent.  So because I didn't want to incur the extra cost of emailing me each time a user signs up, I thought the easy way was to use a webhook to get around that additional cost.

If someone remembers, then YouNetCo once sold a clone of the FB template. Then they removed this template from the store and motivated it by the fact that FB rights were violated. I had this template. Now they have again made a clone of FB on MetaFox - that now phpfox does not violate the rights of FB or was it a multi-move ...?

Like I said, PHPFox (YouNetCo) is just about greed and milk out as much money as they can from what they have. There was/are other 3-4 softwares from that time, whith the same stupid "strategy" and guess what? One was abandoned (funny thing was, they've sold licesences until the last day) and the others, are in PHPFox situation, of dieing slow. Now with so many options/alternatives at a fraction of the price, well supported and more features, of course nobody buys PHPFox anymore and this leads to milk out as much money as is possible from existing customers until eventually they will "bail out" and this will be just another abandoned project.

PHPFOX / METAFOX has a lot of potential... I am not hating on them or their product. I am just disappointed in the product. I mean phpfox has been around for a LONG time and they have all these plugins - but none of them work in the app. 

I just believe that for what I have paid for the ultimate license, live plugin, native apps, other plugins they should have a better product. 

I simply believe that their main goal (maybe their only goal) is to sell as is and never add to it. 

It's just sad that others are in the market with more advanced features for far less. 

TikTok videos are COMMON PLACE in other platforms. Yet, they want you to pay for custom work... maybe you should just do the custom work because people are spending a lot of money to buy your license... then buy your plugins... so maybe to create a better product you guys would have a platform that could embed tiktok videos... I could list of a lot of other things that the product should just have but I talked about that in another post.

I would like to see PHPFOX optimize for engagement. Create something for creators... You charge a lot for your product... I just feel that would warrant the natrual progression of improvement. That's all.

This is somewhat unusual. Out of the box, the server's php software has a 2MB size limit. I've seen a 10MB default file size in phpfox product itself. I'm not sure where the 5Mb limit you're seeinig comes from?

I would highly suggest you review the phpfox v4 documentation on the subject, specifically the following pages:
https://docs.phpfox.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=32899276
https://docs.phpfox.com/display/AD/Optimize+PHP+settings

Additionally, if you're a server guy and you know what you're doing, check your system's php.ini file. It may NOT be in /etc!!!
Drop a phpinfo page on your site and double check what php.ini your installation uses. Or alternatively, contact your hosting provider's support folks and ask them to increase the php max upload size and max post size. They should be able to do this for you fairly easily.

Hopefully this helps your specific case.
 

Thank you very much t3ln3t !  ... excellent information! 

Have you some good news:  found the setting to change this limit...im not sure why is there but here you go:

John Jr helped me to track the error text: "Unable to upload. You have reached the limit of 5 Mb. With this upload it will use more ..." in Globalization>Phrases...and he found that was related to the User App.

Went to Members>Usergroup Settings and found this in User App/module: "The total amount of space a user can use when uploading to the server (eg. photos, videos, songs etc...) in megabytes (mb). Set to "0" for unlimited space."

It is the #26 setting from top...more or less...Then checked all my usergroups quota...none of them was set to 5...except one: REGISTERED USER

Changed it...to another number and Voila !! the limit size when uploading a photo in pages...AS PAGE..not AS MEMBER...changed to the new one i wrote.

It would only remain to understand the relationship between registered users and uploading a photo(or video) in pages as the page not as member.

Just a quick update being as I just received an email notification regarding John's above comment. I am still using PHP 7.4.32 without any problems. I have no intentions of upgrading to PHP 8 any time soon. As they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Why look for trouble?

BTW, I have no intentions of upgrading to phpFox 5 either. It is just not worth the upgrade expense, or the trouble and the additional expense I would incur with updating my iOS and Android apps. Besides, my phpFox site is so dead with barely two dozen members now, I may just end up shutting it down in coming months anyway. Every month I delete more users who haven't logged on in six months or longer. Getting new users is hard. Retaining users and getting active participation is even harder. Too many folks are beholden to the major social networks.

I just noticed another feature that might be missing.  Hopefully someone who has this meta installed can verify it.

Groups owners are no longer have the ability to send invite by email.  Also, I can't even find the invite link for the website on the main menu?

Thank you John and t3ln3t! for your feedback on this topic. A couple of members this year have written me about this situation, but I think they may have forgotten their passwords.
