Attachments with new website

July 11th, 2016, 7:11 am

Hi, new look website doesn't allow me to see past attachments I have uploaded, nor allow me to use attachments in private messages

Unless I am missing something, appears a significant drop in flexibility of the forums

Best,
James

Hi James,

The past attachments will be back a little later, it's still on our list.

Attachments in PM have just been activated, can you let us know if you still have issues with that?

Thanks for the feedback. I've enabled those types but I haven't had time to test it everything works. If things work/fail then please share that.

yes it accepted the .xlsm file format OK, didnt try the others but assume OK too

would really like the functionality to save files down on the site for later use (draft PMs don't save attachments).  will that be re-enabled later tonight or nicht?

Hi James, we still have a list of higher priority things we need to do first. I expect the old attachments wil be back within a week. New attachments should be working, I've justed tested it and it works for me.

We've re-attached most of the old attachments. I've tried to download couple and those worked. If you run into any new/old attachment issues then please share that with us.

I've probably attached 20 or so files over the years. A brief search with author 'Alan' and keywords [attached | attach] shows they are still missing. I'll check back in a week or so.
 
Here was the url of the search results:
search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&keyw ... 1&start=10

Alan, 
Thanks for checking. There was indeed a mistake that caused some (most?) attachments to not show.

Here is a list of posts by you that have attachments, I've checked a couple, they failed to show the expected attached before the fix, and now they do.

Thanks -- fast work! I spot checked a half-dozen of the ones you posted an they all looked good.
However, I believe my most recent attachment was made on May 15, 2016 in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=99222&start=10
and that one is still missing.

Good point, the most recent ones (last couple of months) still need to be done, they will be added in a matter of weeks at the most.

Not a problem -- I just added that one myself, so likely all my attachments are now restored.
