This is a major flaw in the basic functions to me, and I did set up a ticket about it (1 month ago) but was just refered to this being a known issue and a link to this bug-report. I for one feel we shouldn´t need to wait 3 more months to have things like this fixed. It might not be a critical bug as in "the whole site is down" but for a closed forum it´s not nice being forced to show your work to the public (guests) or not at all.
Is there anyway i can limit the file-size of images being uploaded? I´ve seen settings for maximum width/height but would also like a limit around 250kb filesize since you can make a small enough picture take up massive storage.
