    If you want your .doc files to not prompt a save dialog, edit attachment.php line 328 (vBulletin 3.6.1) and find:
    PHP Code:
    if (in_array($extension, array('jpg''jpe''jpeg''gif''png'))) 
    Change it to
    PHP Code:
    if (in_array($extension, array('jpg''jpe''jpeg''gif''png''doc')))

    The dozens of users complaining were on our internal intRAnet which is why you didn't see them complaining.

    The thread http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...42#post1211342 highlighted by bcipher was exactly the same problem as we were having with vBulletin 3.6.0 and Internet Explorer.

    Upgrading to vBulletin 3.6.1 fixed the attachment problem with Internet Explorer.

    Sorry if the original post in this thread did not make the problem clear.

    I also have a problem with attachments and IE. A couple of months ago I started experiencing the problem with vb 3.5.4

    I have now upgraded to 3.6.0 and still have the same problem. When my users click on an attachment, IE doesn't even pick up the file name and they have to manually enter the file name with extension to save it properly. By default it just comes up with the file name "attachment" no matter what the actual file name is.

    There is no problem at all for users using firefox.

    I don't know what end the problem is on but does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    The software went Gold on the 3rd, that's the version of attachments.php I'm after, not Beta!

    Come on, I'm in a right pickle here, with dozens of users complaining about this new 'feature' of vBulletin and currently have no solution for them.

    PS - Would it help if I raised a support ticket?

    A diff-merge between versions 3.5.5 and 3.6.0, of attachments.php, highlight a vast amount of changes (17 in fact).

    I’m not keen on installing a version of attachments.php from a previous release to run with 3.6.0.

    Could I get a copy of the pre 4th-August (pre security announcement), 3.6.0 release of attachments.php please?

    You can download previous versions of vBulletin from the members area, though I can't guarantee that they'll work.

    Which I'm prepared to take...

    Remember we run our forum on a 'closed' intRAnet, in a company environment.

    As it stands now, the attachment functionality is appalling.

    In the meantime before 3.6.1, would it be possible to get a copy of pre4th-Aug attachments.php, to alleviate the problem I'm experiencing?

    That's what Marco said. To fix the security issue, this issue has to be accepted.
    I know Mike was looking into a similiar issue once, so it's possible that it'll work better with 3.6.1

    I have your patched version of attachments.php already installed.

    I’m sorry Marco, but think your missing the point of my problem. It appears the patch is what’s causing the issue. Clicking on attachment links within threads brings up a ‘save’ popup, and NOT an ‘open’, ‘save’ (what do you want to do…) type popup. See image above.

    What do I need to do, in allow users to view attachments, with IE 5.5 and IE 6.0 from within vBulletin?
