Validation against file size

It would be great to be able to set file size limit of uploading file and validate it, so that if a file size exceeds the one set in php.ini not the server error shows, but instead only the local ojs/ocs error appears.

Hi Peter,

I don't think that's possible -- The only way for OJS to test the file size of an uploaded file is if its already been uploaded, in which case its already had to pass php.ini's file size limit.

How about some form with JS or Flash?
