I have the flashlight theme and are building a site to sell high res photos via the woocommerce downloads method.
These forums have been a big help (40 pages later I'm almost ok!)
First let me say I am a comple noob at any coding, I know nothing :). Some guys at work have shown me how to connect to my domain and FTP and stuff though :)
My host has a 7MB limit (mentioned on the gallery uploads page), but if I try to upload more than a 3MB file I get the following error Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/burtonimagery/burton-imagery.com/wp-includes/media.php on line 258.
This error occurs via the green button gallery upload, and on the woocommerce product page (product data section-> upload a file).
I contacted my host (dreamhost.com), and they said this error actually doesn't have anything to do with the file size limit
The error is being given because the upload is going too slowly, all scripts have a time limit on how long they can run.
They suggested uploading these files with a standalone FTP client likeFileZilla!. I have been able to connect to my FTP via filezilla.
My question is:
1. where do I put the image on my FTP so that I can then choose it in the theme?
I can navigate through 'name of my website.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08, and see all the other images I've been able to upload via the gallery. Is that where I put it? But I tried this, but the file I put there isn't in my media library in the theme (on the LHS panel, or in the woocommerce 'upload a file' -> media library option
2. Do I need to do these steps to see the file??? http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/how-to-use-the-%e2%80%9cmedia-gallery%e2%80%9d-images-in-combination-with-flashlight
I don't want to continue much further until I know I'll be able to sell downloads of a high quality!
