What is the size limit for images and files hosted with CAEN's WordPress service?

One of the limitations of the CAEN Web Publishing Service is the inability to host very large files. The specific size limit for a single file on the WordPress server is 30 MB. There are a few options for hosting these types of files; CAEN recommends using a Shared U-M Box Account.

Departments and groups may request shared U-M Box accounts from ITS, which includes Unlimited storage. Large files can be hosted in Box, and easily linked from a WordPress site. Contact the ITS Service Center for more information or to request an account:

The CAEN Web Publishing team is also available to assist departments with evaluating other storage options.
