Forum attached file size limitation.

Why limit .pdf attachments to such a small file size? (tiny 19.5 kB)

I have to convert any attached charts to jpg which forum allows to be a larger file size (253.9kB) .

The pdf charts, which contain vector graphics, would be must better view quality for a smaller file size then jpg.

    Actually that was the default that nobody had ever mentioned before.

    I upped it to 800K, and I also disabled ZIP files upload, since those can have some unknown files or virus in them.

    Apparently XLSX is a different MIME type than XLS, will have to find out what it is and fix it sometime today or tomorrow.

    is the XLSX format a secure version?

    XLXS appears to be a compressed (ZIP) version of standard XLS files that is automatically un-zipped by Excel. Still have not found a spec that works for it reliably.
