I could be wrong but it looks like when you add an attachment it isn't working right

The attachment bug is not really a bug, but it's something most people aren't used to.

When you make an attachment, you upload it like normal, but it doesn't automatically join itself to the bottom of the post.

You have to click the "manage attachments" long button below the editing window, and click the little paper with the green arrow to add your attachment wherever in the post you want to have it.
Debian Squeeze: HPM8120N - Q6600, 965 northbridge/ICH8-R south, 9500GT (1GB)
Snow Leopard 10.6.6: Alu Macbook: Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz, 2GB Ram, nVidia 9400M.
Android: Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant (GT-i9000m, Froyo) and Samsung Galaxy Tab (Froyo)

reality - did you check out bhast2's link?

I assume the problem is that the bbcode isn't working properly in that post. Unless those attachments aren't actually uploaded...

Edit: in that post, it says "COPY/PASTE for now". So I reckon fassl just forgot to upload the attachments... smile.gif

#1: the attachments work exactly the same here as on IM. upload, then manage. I´d be surprised if anyone really gets caught
out by that. If there really is an issue with bbcode not showing up, thern that is something we need to look into.

#2: the size of attachment and what areas you can post them in is different by user group. Staff testing uploads & saying "it works OK" isn´t really relevant.

#3 I´m trying out pig-slow 3g/gprs broadband at my folks´but I´ll check into it as & when I can.

#4 Can we fix it? YES WE CAN tongue.gif
This Time We're Doing it RIGHT
