This forum's file manager can't handle "large" files 100KB

I've noticed several of the last few times I've attempted to upload pictures as attachments they won't upload. Instead there will be a yellow icon with an exclamation point and no notice of what happened. Clicking on the yellow icon shows this:

Capture.PNG (2.49 KiB) Viewed 987 times

I realized that what was happening is large files were failing to be moved and the small ones weren't. I think you should increase these limits or at least come up with a better way to explain to the user what is happening. Here's a picture that can be used to reproduce:

Hello cornflake,

I was able to attach the picture you posted by resizing it to 100KB
If you need to upload bigger files, you can use a free file hosting website just like you did with the image at the end of your post.

As for the error messages, I am not seeing a way to change those. If I get a chance, I'll search the phpBB3 forums to see if there's any way to make them easier to spot.
