I want to showcase some adopted graphics on my blog, but I may have issues with the file names. I know these will seem like small problems, but some of the graphics I want to adopt are from Geocities sites, and they're going down in October.
First question: What's the maximum length allowed for a file name? A couple of years ago I couldn't upload one of my dolls because the file name was allegedly too long. Since it was one of mine I didn't mind changing the file name, but I can't do that with other people's file names. I don't expect WP to accommodate file names like Leafsockandcrownwithcat.gif or wayuki_pixel-shunisha_kimberly.gif, but what about a more reasonable number of characters (like, say 15). And speaking of wayuki_pixel-shunisha_kimberly.gif...
Second question: What exactly does WP allow in the file names? I know the FAQ says letters and numbers only, but I've seen hyphens in file names when I searched the forum for a different graphics problem. I'm sure WP would probably balk at snow%20white.gif, but would mira-gown.gif or doll_elf10.gif be a problem?
The blog I need help with is arizonad.wordpress.com.
