In 2.5 the default directory for attachments is  'path-to-your-html-directory'/yabbfiles/Attachments. This path can be changed in Paths.pl.

The prewritten path in Advanced Settings comes from that setting. Advanced Settings isn't giving you a recommendation - it's telling you what you have set up on your server.

So, if you change the path, you are probably changing to a directory that doesn't exist.

The list that comes up is from a file that lists the attachments that are supposed to be there, not from reading the directory where they're supposed to be.

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Hi I have followed the instruction given on a subject for adding images, but when I get to the part that says click advanced setting then file attachment tab in the section marked:Attachment directory exists and has correct permissions? is set at yes, but not with the suggested text it suggests changing it to  ......com/forum/yabbfiles/attachments, but when I change it to this the attachment directory is then set at no, I have even tried it unchanged with the permission set at yes . yet when listing something in the forum when I hit browse button it brings up files I choose one then list the subject but when I click on the link to view is bring up a web page saying URL not found, I can get pictures by uploading to phobucket and inserting the code but others will find it hard, any ideas I need this one solved please Smiley
