Tweaking default WordPress settings today (mostly for chuckles and grins). With the free version, you cannot upload video and audio files (which are by nature usually much bigger than pictures and documents). Created a .user.ini with the appropriate commands to set my own limits and used FileZilla to upload it to the database on the server.
For large files, if they do timeout on the upload using WordPress’s function to do this, I can do it another way. I can FTP a file to the database, then use a plugin that I installed today that will let you import the FTP’d files. So, I have 2 ways to accomplish getting files into WordPress.
I added the below video using Add Media function of Word Press to upload from my computer (instead of FileZilla). The song playing on FM 89.5 WPKN is Bob Dylan singing “Thunder on the Mountain”. I got home from the shop around 10:00 PM last night, and started jamming to the music! I really should have been inside my house, in my jammies! I owe all of the delay to radio show host, Jeff.
