[ZendTo] Number of files in a drop off.

That small addition of “(maximum 200)” sounds good enough to me actually.

Subject: Re: [ZendTo] Number of files in a drop off.

I don't want to make the page appear any more complex than it is already, so I personally don't like the idea of putting extra text in or next to the "click to ..." button in the middle.

And this is the first time this issue has ever been raised. I had to go and read my own code to discover what the limit was and how/where I had enforced it. Hardly *anyone* ever hits this, I think it's a very rare event.

Adding a tiny bit to the text at the top would be okay, in my view.
Though possibly something really short such as
        "...one or more files (maximum 200) for anyone..."
Then I could probably fix all the language translations to a reasonable standard too, as I'm only trying to add 1 word.

Any thoughts?

Or better yet, why not (also) have some sort of message informing the user ahead of time of the limit.

I like that.

There’s already language relating to number of files in the text above the form (image attached), so perhaps this could draw on the number set by the administrator, and say something like “one or more files, up to a maximum of $limit_from_preferences, for anyone…”


But perhaps your suggestion of “Click to add up to $limit_from_preferences Files…” in the button text is more obvious to the user?
