With this forum version, I'll be releasing features every couple of weeks.

The next one that's coming is the ability to upload videos directly into threads. Should help in places videos are better than pictures to get a better understanding of where a cable comes from and goes to (hard to tell in a series of pictures sometimes maybe), and perhaps even when we do the old how tidy is your van thread, can just do a video walking around it etc.

These will then get stored on our servers, then cached by cloudflare to save our own bandwidth, and we even have the option of sticking a little ad at the start of them - not sure I'll enable that until we have at least 100,000 videos on the forum. Wouldn't be worth the hassle.

So I'm just finishing configuring the video side of the settings, then we'll give it a punt! I'll announce when it's ready in this thread, so click WATCH at the top to watch the thread and get a notification. :D

I can't even upload an image through attach files at the moment. Says file is too large.

Hang on its limited by the server I'll need to wait to get home to increase that value. I'm just about to have a knee op. Won't be back until midnight so will have to stick it on tomorrow's to do list.

Got cancelled last minute due to an emergency. I could have waited 6 hours but said I would rebook. Looks like it will be next week now. Bricking it as I don't like needles let alone being held down screaming while they gas me to near death.

Woke up in surgery last time. That was my nightmare come true. Lol
