Hi,

Since yesterday I found that the attachments in my posts are gone, with only a "[attachment=1234:blahblahblach....blahblahblah]" left in the attachment links.
Example: http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=24877
The same happens to many other posts (although I am not sure how general the problem is). Please help. Many thanks!

They are all still valid... I can still download attachments from March 2007... So I will just have to see if there is some type of attachment expiration

PS. I even went back as far as 2005 :-)

I have the same problem, my attachments are also missing from these 2 recent posts:
http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=24768 (post 2)
http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=24787 (post 4 & 5)

The above aren't really important attachments, but I was wondering where they went?

One more attachment went missing: (recent post)
Capn_Fish's post for "Updated Wifi Radar"

Jon J, Check under Control Panel and look at your attachments under "Manage Attachments"

Let me know what you see under there

Oh... I only see my attachments up to 16th August 2007. All the files after that date are gone.

Hi there,

It's been a few days and I discovered many of the recent uploads (not just Jon_J's and mine) are lost. Would there be any fix for that? Thanks!

I couldnt find anything in the admin console in regards to attachments expiring... DZ would have to contact support for that.

But I will keep lookin :-)

Hi again,
Just want to ask about the current status.
Are those attachments gone for good?
Shall I upload again to replace them?
Will the new upload expire again?
Thanks for looking into this.
Have nice weekend.

I got a reply back from IPB. They apparently dont know what it is and for some reason, there's a chunk of data missing in the database about the attachments. Do you guys still have the files? Can you reupload? If not, I can check and make sure they're still on the actual server if you give me filenames and then I can reupload.

Thanks for the feedback.

I still have the files, so that's perfectly fine. I was just thinking of what would happen if the old packages show up again in the same post after I upload new ones there. But now it is clear now. smile.gif
