  • [Forum] Inline attachments showing as links

    I just noticed that on this forum Version 4.0.6, inline attachments now show as links. Here is an example of a post (post #1) that has two inline attachments.

    Is this a new bug?

    Or perhaps a setting?

        Is your Admin CP setting for View Attached Images Inline set to Yes?

        Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Message Attachment Options - > View Attached Images Inline -> Yes

          I clicked on the attachment link, and it's so stupid. It takes you to this: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/attac...5&d=1268267025

          That's not an image url! that's an attachment, which I find a huge problem with vbulletin. Why in the world are all the images attachments instead of .jpg, .png, .gif images, etc. It causes such huge problems with my images being turned into links half the time as "attachment1024" for example. So annoying!

          It's the same thing in albums too with the url not being an actual image file but an attachment file.

            Did you check the setting I mentioned in post number four?

              The reason they show as attachment.php is so you may apply permissions to them. If you always had a direct link to the image/attachment, then you would be unable to not show it to Unregistered users, or other usergroups.

                  Understandable, but in user profile albums it's the same way, .php extension, so they don't work when trying to post them as images as a blog background style, and don't work when trying to embed them into posts either. Doesn't make sense to give an image url as an option in a users album that can't be used throughout the forum. What's the point of an image url or bb code if it can't be used anywhere? It would be so much easier if images were actually .jpg's etc. It should be an option to have images be actual image files.

                    The problem has been resolved. When I click the link in the first post the inline attachments now appear as images.

                      Yep, now it works, thank you!
                      I'm wondering how I missed that option...
                      sorry

                        Perhaps this is not relevant to the above but Unregistered / Not Logged In users cannot view my in-line CMS attachment images and I would like for them to be able to view them.

                        Please advise. Thank you.
