Not weirdness, but do you have any plans to allow direct copy-and-paste of images as some other sites do rather than have to go through the save and upload and thumbnail procedure? For example, the "Snipping Tool".

I think I know what you mean, drag and drop images directly to your post? I think that would be a great add-on. It really depends if we stick with vbulletin for the forums or switch to maybe xenforo which is picking up in popularity in recent years.

Not quite. Just right-click an image somewhere and select "copy", open a Reply window in T2W and right-click "paste". And that's it. Or one can capture annotated charts with Snippit and copy and paste that way. No need to save the image to one's computer and upload it and open a thumbnail and then delete it from the computer. And no need to futz with a dozen or more file extensions (I assume that these images are all *.img). Given the problems you've been having, it's possible that your program is just creaky.

Unable to upload charts to thread

Okay, we're now 100% fixed and working normally.
Hi Sharky

I have been unable to upload charts to the thread

Predicting future FX support and resistance levels using mathematics

in the Forex forum. And old thumbnails are not showing.

I just tried again at the time of this post and same problem Thumbnails from previous pages don't display and I am unable to upload new charts. I just get the error message "Upload of file failed.".

Regards

gka

Thanks for reporting this @gka I've confirmed that attaching files and images is not working currently. We're fixing it now, looks like file directory permission problem, should be working shortly...

Still unable to see attachments in previous posts

Attachments now working again :clap:
Hi Sharky thank you for fixing the upload side of the thread I have been posting to.

As of the time of this post I still cannot see/display attachments of previous posts. I just get the file name and a black display. I attach a screen grab to explain

Hi Paul,
There's an old issue - that's fairly minor - but still quite annoying! Namely, if a video is posted, any text that appears after it (i.e. below it) has a hyperlink to a non-existent page. Difficult to find recent examples of this as I guess most members that post videos are aware of the issue and make sure that any accompanying text appears before the video and not after it. That said, here's one (not very good) example:
and the summary of the appeal ruling:

Thanks for the heads-up Tim, we'll definitely aim to fix that but as it's a plug-in we use, it might not be so easy to tweak. It might make more sense to tackle through a more extensive forum upgrade, will give it some thought.

Hi Paul,
Just tried to upload a couple of photos - no joy! They're around 5Mb jpeg's each - quite big I guess but, if size is the reason, the software usually alerts me to that - which it didn't do this time.
Tim.

That's odd, can you send me one of the images Tim? We support up to 6mb for jpegs.
