Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.


 Hi there,


      My members are uploading Photos over 44MB on my network. Since Ning keeps these HUGE original files after compress it for better performance, and make it double in size. I am running out of space on my network. Nobody can upload anything until I change my plan for an expensive plan. 

I asked on the support to create a limit photo size and they said, they can't do it. But they do on Ning itself. Try to upload a photo here on the forum, the maximum size will be 3MB

Anyway, How can I try to have control over what my members upload? I am talking about photo size. ( file size )  

In the past, around 2009 Ning has some control on it, like limit the number of photos a member could upload per day, but they took it away And One single member can Upload 10GB in photos in just one day.

I have only 2660 Photos on my network. On my computers, this takes only a 1.2GB, not 10 GB 

Anyway, My question is. How can I try to control it?

  • I have over 18000 photos on my site and and a few thousand videos I’ve only used 7 gb 

    • Hi there,


      I honestly don't understand. I am a photographer and I use a professional camera. 2000  photos take around 2.5 Gb on my computer. How come My network is full like that?

      • Any way 

        How can I limited members upload?

        • You can make it to where you have to approve the photos they upload so you can control how much you want to allow per day on your site 

          • hi,


            How can i do it?

            I looking for it, but i didin't find it. Do you think is the only way?
