Attachments.....

WTF is up with the attachments When you upload them, it just comes up with a link, not the picture.......whats the point of uploading them here if it wont post the picture?

I say that needs to be fixed since all the contributors have paid for the attachments feature....

Is it really a big deal if you have to add the IMG tags to see them?

ummm......what is the point of having attachments if we have to upload the pictures, click on the link, copy the address, and then post the IMG tags to the address

why not just upload them 1 time into photobucket and then copy that already tagged up link over?


i dont see why it can't be like it was before....there are other VBulliten boards that have that feature..

They work you just have to be logged in to see them. Otherwise, you'll just see the file name displayed.

I think I've got it partly figured out. It has to do with the file name.

If I use a program that rescales the images and it produces a complex file name like "2008-02-12 (Medium) 01.jpg" then it will not display usually. If I rename the file "picture1.jpg" then it displays automatically.

Something in the code is parsing the long file names and getting confused and failing to see that it's a .jpg somehow. The old board didn't do that -- but this one does.

The solution for now is to rename your attachments before uploading them with a simple name. That's what I'm doing now to get them to show up.

Change it to an old style 8.3 file name like glacier2.jpg and see what happens. I think all the ones I did were 8 characters or shorter in the name portion when they worked.
