Great job developers!!
@roadsider. Thanks for posting your comments. As of version 2.0, Module Class Suffix is available.
That is not a problem, but would be awesome if it said that from the start!
@alaskalive. Thank you for taking the time out to post a review of my module. However, your statement about paying for uploading a file larger than 3MB is simply not true. There is no limitation in my code regarding file size, except for what the user specifies in the settings. In addition, no where in my module, description or code, do I solicit users to pay for added features.
Oftentimes, file size upload limitations are specified at the PHP/server settings, and they override the "Maximum File Size (bytes)" setting in the Module Manager. If you need assistance is understanding or find out how to change these settings, I invite you to visit my support site: http://support.michaelgilkes.com. I check this site every day, and I do my best to answer everyone in a timely fashion. Please visit my support site at your earliest convenience.
In my opinion it is better to have suggestions for htaccess or to restrict by file extension than to give the users a "false" statement that the module is secure...
Also the limitation to have files under ./images directory only is very limiting.
Kudos for nice and clean code but this still requires a few tweaks to functioning perfectly.
Thanks for taking the time out to download and use my module. I have taken note of your review, and would like to encourage you to visit my technical support site: http://support.michaelgilkes.com
