    Question ~ No more attachments ~

    Hi there Dave,

    I have just noticed this...
    You may not post attachments
    ...in the posting rules.
    Is this a new innovation or just a vBulletin upgrade error?

    Hey Coot, thanks for pointing this out to me.

    I think I have an idea of what the issue is. I have been putting alot of work in behind the scenes getting the newest upgrade ready, I think the problem will be solved once this goes public. If by chance the issue still exists at that time I will make sure to put it at the top of my priority list.

    For now any code can simply be placed in the code - /code tags.

    Hi there Dave,

    thanks for your reply.

    Actually it is not really a big issue for me as I use the bb [code] tags for the majority of my posts.

    Occasionally I use the attachment facility, mainly when I have reworked a members' site and have included images and or pages of my own making.

    But it is, of course, reassuring to know that it is there if necessary.

    Regards,

    Hi there Dave,

    I see that you have not managed to restore the attachment facility as yet.
    Have you decided to that it may not now be necessary for this forum?

    Re: ~ No more attachments ~

    Hey coothead, Sorry this is not yet fixed. The fault is 2fold, I am not going public until VB puts out a decent version 4. I paid for it months ago, what I am hearing from those I trust is that it is still a joke.


    I have been not doing much more than dealing with spam as of late. I think everybody knows the story with my spinal issues. An increase in apartment vacancies lately has me doing work I really should not be doing right now. I have 2 more vacancies to handle then hopefully I may be able to recuperate a little bit,(though another surgery is what is suggested). Bottom line, though I am around here and there the ability to think properly and concentrate on code is not so great.


    To answer your question concerning my thoughts on the importance of the attach function. For me it is not important, but it is in no way about that. Most people that use the forum (myself included) seldom use the function, your usage alone is probably greater than everybody else combined. For that reason alone, it is important to me to get it back in working order. My priority has always been to make things as easy as I can for the members that blood sweat and tears goes into assisting others.

    Hi there Dave,

    I hope that you are now in better health and are enjoying the pleasures that a new grandchild brings.

    It seems that you are still waiting for VB to put out a decent version 4.

    I wouldn't have bothered you further about the attachment facility as I now use...

    ...as an attachment substitute.
    It is probably quite sufficient in the short term.

    I did have a member, though, who today bemoaned it's unavailability....


    Regards,

    Hi there Dave,

    thanks for sorting out the "Manage Attachments" option.

    It is very useful for the more complicated solutions that may be offered to members.

    Here is an example for you to try.
