Re: File Attachment Issue

You need to go in and remove one of the attachments from the attachments tab. I edited the first one and now it only shows one file.

Re: File Attachment Issue

The only thing you can do is re-attach them to your post by editing it to get it back in the database.

Re: File Attachment Issue

We were able to do a partial restore from a backup on 9/1/2020 and merge it with the new attachments since September 17, 2020. Please check your attachments and see if some missing ones turned up. I noticed some seem to be back ( Motet's transposition chart ) but others are still missing ( Peter Tho...

The server company upgraded the database servers and moved the database to new hardware without telling us. Unfortunately, the attachments database was corrupted and the...

Re: Problem deleting attachments

Guys,

I am unable to duplicate this problem. I can attach a file (image or .mus) then delete it. I can attach a file, preview the post, then delete the file.

Re: File Attachment Issue

I don't think that's it. I think it's more likely that if you edited a post that already had an attachment, there may be a bug in the forum software that doesn't grab all the attachments when you save the edit. We're still looking into it.

Re: File Attachment Issue

Motet reported this issue yesterday. There is no automatic removal of attachments by age or any other metric. We don't randomly or automatically prune the forum. The only thing that gets pruned are spam and inactive users. So far we can find no evidence of a hack but we've asked the moderators to ch...

Re: Forum upgrade

P.S.: One of the reasons I have favored using this forum is due to its look. The look now is not as good to the eye. It seems a step backwards was taken. Quite a disappointment. And where is the option to save a draft of a post? Anyone can choose the template they wish to use. 1. Click the arrow ne...

Avatar size requirements adjusted

By request we have increased the avatar file size, and dimensions limit (slightly). This may have affected some of the avatars. You may need to go into your profile and reupload your avatar to get it to work.
