Attachments?

Do attachments expire/go away if they are not attached to a thread. I uploaded some pics yesterday and they were showing up in the attachments area of UserCP but today they're gone.

Re: Attachments?

Hi Robert. I've looked all through the settings and the server and do not see them either. They should not expire. Try one again and let's see what happens.

Re: Attachments?

As usual I was doing it wrong. I thought I could upload files and attach them whenever, not the case as they do go away. I uploaded and attached the last one during a post and it looks like its sticking. Odd though the one that disappeared from my attachment list (post #4 below) is still showing in the post (at least for now). Post #5 is the one I did correct (I think).

Re: Attachments?

Attachments can only be displayed in the post you uploaded it in. I believe if you attach the same file a second time in another post the first will be lost.

Re: Attachments?

It wasn't the same file even though the same content. The first was test.jpg and the second test2.jpg. I'm okay now that I know how to do it. Just curious where the file test.jpg actually is since the link to it in post 4 is still working.

Re: Attachments?

Go into your User CP and scroll down to Attachments under Miscellaneous and all your attachments will be listed and there will be links to the threads they are posted in too...

Re: Attachments?

There's only the one file "test2.jpg" .

Here's what I did to cause the problem, here again it's not really a problem to me anymore but might be considered a hole or bug.

I went to a thread and clicked "Go Advanced" as if to start a new post.

Then clicked on the Attachments icon (paper clip)

Uploaded the "test.jpg" then when done I did not insert the attachment at that point. I thought I could use it later so I aborted the post.

Then I went over to UserCP and brought up the Attachments window and there was "test.jpg" however in the Attached to Thread column it had "n/a" and in the Date column it had "In progress".

A few minutes later I went to start a new post in the test thread and couldn't figure out how to insert the attachment because it wasn't listed under the paper clip icon. Not knowing I was doing this all wrong I went back to the UserCp Attachment window right clicked on the "test.jpg" and copied the url. Then I went back to the new post and inserted the url as an image.

Later I noticed that "test.jpg" had disappeared from the UserCp Attachments window, I'm guessing because I didn't use it in the normal way.

So now it's hanging out there somewhere whether it matters I'm not sure.

That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

Re: Attachments?

I think you are right, if not attached to a post it might get cleaned up in the hourly maintenance that the forum runs.
