How much space do I have on my Blog

A new blog has 1,025 MB Space Allowed for file uploads.

You can see how much space you have used on the Dashboard:
Screen Shot Dashboard "At a Glance" metabox

This space can be increased by request. Contact the RM help desk via your Local Authority contact.

We recommend that you try to keep these requests to a minimum.

Often blogs ballon in size because owners upload large numbers of images files at high resolution. In Glow Blogs files are downsized to 1200pixels (unless you change the settings).

It may be worthwhile thinking about which images to display rather than uploading a large number. A few well chosen and captioned images may be of more interest that a huge gallery.

Video files often take up a lot of space. although Glow Blogs can host small videos, up to 50MB, it is not a video hosting platform. Some schools use YouTube or Vimeo to host their videos and embed them on their glow blog.
