  • [CMS] Attachments from Forum Threads that are promoted don't always work.

    Whenever someone attaches a file or image to a thread post and then refers to that attachment in the forum thread, it works. The image or file is displayed or linked to as it should using IMG tags with the URL of the image.

    However, when that same forum thread is promoted to a CMS article, the attachments no longer work and it replaces the [img*] tags and URL with [ATTACH*]0[/ATTACH*]

    Why is this and is there a way around it some I don't have to correct all of the images in the promoted article?

    Thank you in advance.

        Would be nice if they fixed this, it is a basic functionality that should work.

        To get around this, I manually upload a photo through the FTP and then link to it and it works correctly... pain in the ass, but it works.

          Please could you create a bug report on this and PM me the number? I remember this coming up as an issue some months back. I tried dozens of times to reproduce it and never could, and I sent PM's to the poster and got no response.
          Please- I'm not tech support. Don't send your problem reports to me unless I've asked you to.

            Sure, would you mind explaining how to create a bug report?

              Duplicated here. For now I just use the attachment URL with image tags.

                That is the only solution but I am getting sick of not being able to use my own attachments.

                I created a bug report, I don't understand how they could release this with the attachment system working so poorly. Never was an issue in VB 3.
