No attachment limit for admins
« on: September 26, 2004, 10:51:06 PM »
I would like to be able to have the file size/extension limits not apply to admins.  Is this easy to do?  There's times I need to upload a couple of meg zip or something, but I don't want to give the world access to do that.  I've been changing the limit, uploading the file, then changing it back.

Same here, comes back with

 Your file is too large. The maximum attachment size allowed is 192 KB.

My max attachment setting is 100KB so dunno where it gets 192 KB from.

Maybe it's your per-post limit?

Post.php, find:

I've just found this topic, so apologies for the late question.

I can find Post.template.php but can't find Post.php  Which sub-directory would it be in?

TIA

i thought that if we should edit it, it should not just be for the over-all attachment limit, but edit more of the code below that, to allow more permissions to the admin.

would this be alright?

Code: [Select]
// Is the file too big?
if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']) && $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n] > $modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('smf122', false, array($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']));

// Have we reached the maximum number of files we are allowed?
$quantity++;
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']) && $quantity > $modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit'])
fatal_lang_error('attachments_limit_per_post', false, array($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']));

// Check the total upload size for this post...
$total_size += $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n];
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']) && $total_size > $modSettings['attachmentPostLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('smf122', false, array($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']));

if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentCheckExtensions']))
{
if (!in_array(strtolower(substr(strrchr($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n], '.'), 1)), explode(',', strtolower($modSettings['attachmentExtensions']))))
fatal_error($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n] . '.<br />' . $txt['smf123'] . ' ' . $modSettings['attachmentExtensions'] . '.', false);
}

if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentDirSizeLimit']))
{
// Make sure the directory isn't full.
$dirSize = 0;
$dir = @opendir($modSettings['attachmentUploadDir']) or fatal_lang_error('smf115b');
while ($file = readdir($dir))
{
if (substr($file, 0, -1) == '.')
continue;

$dirSize += filesize($modSettings['attachmentUploadDir'] . '/' . $file);
}
closedir($dir);

// Too big!  Maybe you could zip it or something...
if ($_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n] + $dirSize > $modSettings['attachmentDirSizeLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('smf126');
}

// Find the filename, strip the dir.
$destName = basename($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n]);

// Check if the file already exists.... (for those who do not encrypt their filenames...)
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentEncryptFilenames']))

if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentEncryptFilenames']))
{
I was thinking of doing the exact same thing .. I don't see why it wouldn't work .. guess I'm about to find out  ;)

though it seems you didn't add the string
Code: [Select]
!$user_info['is_admin'] && to the first part of the code
Code: [Select]
// Is the file too big?
if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']) && $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n] > $modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('smf122', false, array($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']));

So what's changed here over the past 2+ years that might stop this working?

NB I'm aware of the following:

Maybe it's your per-post limit?

But still can't attach a 600K image with per post limit of 2000K and max attachment size of 200K 'disabled' as suggested above for admins (so that line at least remains unchanged since 2004!) and suspect there may now be some additional limiting factor?

For SMF 2.02 to exempt the admin from upload size limits and file extension checks: Basically just add !$user_info['is_admin'] && to all these checks...

In Sources/Post.php:
FIND:
Code: [Select]
if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']) && $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n] > $modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('file_too_big', false, array($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']));

$quantity++;
if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']) && $quantity > $modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit'])
fatal_lang_error('attachments_limit_per_post', false, array($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']));

$total_size += $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n];
if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']) && $total_size > $modSettings['attachmentPostLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('file_too_big', false, array($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']));

if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentCheckExtensions']))
{
if (!in_array(strtolower(substr(strrchr($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n], '.'), 1)), explode(',', strtolower($modSettings['attachmentExtensions']))))
fatal_error($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n] . '.<br />' . $txt['cant_upload_type'] . ' ' . $modSettings['attachmentExtensions'] . '.', false);
}


REPLACE with:
Code: [Select]
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']) && $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n] > $modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('file_too_big', false, array($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']));

$quantity++;
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']) && $quantity > $modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit'])
fatal_lang_error('attachments_limit_per_post', false, array($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']));

$total_size += $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n];
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']) && $total_size > $modSettings['attachmentPostLimit'] * 1024)
fatal_lang_error('file_too_big', false, array($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']));

if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentCheckExtensions']))
{
if (!in_array(strtolower(substr(strrchr($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n], '.'), 1)), explode(',', strtolower($modSettings['attachmentExtensions']))))
fatal_error($_FILES['attachment']['name'][$n] . '.<br />' . $txt['cant_upload_type'] . ' ' . $modSettings['attachmentExtensions'] . '.', false);
}

FIND:
Code: [Select]
// Check the total upload size for this post...
$total_size += $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n];
if (!empty($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']) && $total_size > $modSettings['attachmentPostLimit'] * 1024)
{
checkSubmitOnce('free');
fatal_lang_error('file_too_big', false, array($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']));
}

REPLACE with:
Code: [Select]
// Check the total upload size for this post...
$total_size += $_FILES['attachment']['size'][$n];
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']) && $total_size > $modSettings['attachmentPostLimit'] * 1024)
{
checkSubmitOnce('free');
fatal_lang_error('file_too_big', false, array($modSettings['attachmentPostLimit']));
}

Doesn´t seem to work for me. I´m the main and only administrator of my forum and although I made the changes to Post.php I´m not able to upload more and bigger files as defined in the attachment settings. Using SMF 2.0.2.

Any ideas?

Hi, look in Subs-Post.php for the same set of checks and make the recommended change to those also.
Except, instead of !$user_info['is_admin'] use !$context['user']['is_admin']

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

The reason it doesn't work is it's incomplete.  Modifications must be made to the Themes/default/Post.template.php as well.... 


In Sources/Post.php, find and replace:

$context['num_allowed_attachments'] = empty($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit'])
Code: (Replace) [Select]
$context['num_allowed_attachments'] = ($user_info['is_admin'] || empty($modSettings['attachmentNumPerPostLimit']))

function createAttachment(&$attachmentOptions)
{

Code: (Replace) [Select]
function createAttachment(&$attachmentOptions)
{

Code: (Replace) [Select]
if (!$user_info['is_admin'] && !empty($modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit']) && $attachmentOptions['size'] > $modSettings['attachmentSizeLimit'] * 1024)

if ($user_info['is_admin'] || $context['num_allowed_attachments'] > 1)
Code: (Find) [Select]
var allowed_attachments = ', $context['num_allowed_attachments'], ';
Code: (Replace) [Select]
var allowed_attachments = ', (empty($user_info['is_admin']) ? $context['num_allowed_attachments'] : 100), ';
Code: (Find) [Select]
