    If you are talking about images also, check this thread out.

        Please post PHP & MySQL information. Also double check to make sure that everything is set right for attachments in the control panel.

                  Did you read and do what was in the thread that was in Joshs' first post? If you did not, that should do it. If you did, then this must be something new. The referenced thread worked for me. If you did not try it , do it.

                  I helped someone else with this that did not understand the thread so here it is:

                  Here is a copy of my newpost_attachment template
                  	<td bgcolor="#a3D1d1" valign="top"><normalfont><b>Attach file:</b></normalfont><br>
                  	<smallfont>Maximum size: $maxattachsize bytes</smallfont></td>
                  	<td bgcolor="#a3D1d1" valign="top"><smallfont><input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1048576">
                  	<input type="file" class="bginput" name="attachment"><br>
                  	Valid file extensions: $attachextensions</smallfont></td>
                  You need to replace what the value was (I don't remember what it said before, but it was not a number to the max bytes allowed for an attachment. The number I used was equal to 1 mb. You can make it whatever you want.

                    OK that worked. I had read that thread but I didn't really understand it.
