    I've noticed in a few threads recently that when you use the [ ATTACH ] [/ ATTACH] tags for an image you've uploaded it doesn't seem to work. Older ones are alright but it seems from at least yesterday on, there's been trouble.

    I think it's fixed for now.

    Ah...thank you! I thought I was just effing it up when I was having problems earlier today. But I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong...it's not all that hard, and I've done it lots of times.

    Is anybody else still having a few attachment-related problems? The main thing I'm seeing is attachments taking a very long time to load. This has been going on for several days...possibly since the server adjustments made on Friday.

    I have noticed attachments taking a while to load. Several times I was about to tell someone that there image is missing and then about 10-20 seconds after the rest of the page finished loading the attachment appears.

    So far so good...I haven't noticed any problems. I'll keep an eye on it.

    One other problem I've been noticing with attachments: When composing a post, I click on the paperclip and the attachments window opens. I click through the steps and add my attachment. In the past, after adding the attachment, the main reply window would refresh to show the added attachment in the "Attach Files" section. It no longer does this. In order to see the attachment in the main window (useful when trying to get the ID number for inline attachments), I have to either reload the attachments window or click on "Manage Attachments" in the main window again. (FYI, I'm on Safari and Tiger.)

    Anybody else experiencing this?

    Yep, I've had this. It's not a huge problem, but just a wee bit annoying. Camino and Tiger here.

    ya... unfortunately, the recent server changes prevents the original window to refresh. I don't know if there's an easy solution for that.

    Looks like the problem has arisen again. Now it doesn't seem like any attachments are being shown. When I clicked on one it said there was a database error. :confused:
