I don't know and I can't help you without full access to your site. This is not being reported by anyone else.

Hmmm.... sounds like someone needs to manage & secure his server, and read up on LDM's fully detailed wiki.

Didn't know this mod came with unlimited personal support.... very time-consuming I'm sure.

Not unlimited but reasonable support. Obviously I'm a sad guy who can't live a real life. More seriously, it can be interesting to understand what types of difficulties exist.

If you set your thumbs folder and dimensions, LDM might try to create the thumbnail... I prefer to add it manually.

The image is normally provided separately from the link/file.

The first step is to set LDM/admin/settings/link_imagesize to the size of the thumbnail you want to display. Otherwise, you are not given the option to specify an image in the add/edit entry form. (Up to LDM version 2.2.9, you have to do this step explicitly. From 2.3.0, it will automatically pick up a value from vbulletin if necessary)

It is also a good idea to specify LDM/admin/settings/thumbs_dir, so that LDM can cache the thumbnails of your images, but this is not essential.

After you have done this, the add/edit entry form contain one or two extra fields, for pointing to an image and for uploading an image. (The field for uploading an image only appears if you have also enabled uploads.)

The thumbnail image is also created automatically in the following situations:
- Your main file is an image, or
- Your main file is an mp3 file containing albumart *and* you have installed the ID3tags extra for LDM.

Have you taken a look in the LDM release zip? The vba_modules subdirectory in /release contains modules such as ldm_new.module, which shown the latest releases. The php code for this module is available in /development/vba_modules/php

I have the uploading of files enabled. However, when a person adds an entry the option to upload a file from computer is not there. I have to add an option as a attribute. What I am doing wrong?

I can be doing wrong that I did not create the thumbnail image?

Thanks and sorry for my english....

My attachment limit is set at 10MB. This works fine for normal members, however when uploading as admin I have a very small upload limit. Why?

Also, how can I increase the size of the video shown? I can increase the size of the player, but not the video.
