would that explain the difference between being logged in and not logged in ?

it can when using different templates with the css files for those templates as they load different graphics for each template from the css file set for that template take http://slinging.org/forum/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/yabb25/yabblogo.png

as you see this wont load not 404 or a 403 forbidden but just wont show prob down to corruption and looking at it more I do say corruption as it looks that all the .png files are the same
also this is what loads for me in my pic

pretty sure I uploaded with all the correct ascii/binary etc.
I've done it that often now. 

But I'll try it again. Something's definitely screwy.

would that explain the difference between being logged in and not logged in ?
That's the bit that's throwing me. If it all showed the same regardless of whether you were logged in or not - that'd make more sense to me.

My other thought was to set up another new yabb2.5 instrallation in a seperate folder, see if it works properly and then just move the files across.

This could be what's happening. I'm thinking this because ...

I did another local test of your forum by replacing your rss icon with the one our forum uses in addition to using the default1.css file that our forum uses, and your forum rendered perfectly fine.

In volunteering xnoddyx to help you out just because he's so good at it, maybe you can allow him to access your server if the rendering of your forum remains an issue. I could probably do this myself for you, but my abilities are limited versus xnoddyx's comprehensive abilities.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Even for guests some of the graphics are missing - the RSS button is missing and a good chunk of the css is missing. If your custom template uses 'class="shadow" then what's happening is that it's not the wrong template but the wrong css file that's loaded (what's loading is default.css).
  

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

right I can post again without being told something's buggered.

Okay the situation as it stands.

If you are not logged into the forum you see the blue yabb2.5.2 template and everything works.

However, once you do login you get the standard slinging.org templates and no pictures display.
BUT IN BOTH CASES YOU ARE REFERENCING THE SAME URLS, FILES AND PATHS.
I don't think it's a cache and cookies issue.

Also in the forum control panel there is no part of the blue yabb 2.5 template setup that is selected.

IN short - if you are a visitor or guest to the forum you see a template nobody setup - but stuff displays correctly, I personally think it looks horrible
.
As a member you see the correct template but pictures do not display and there are various other minor weirdnesses.

I am now officially confused.

If anyone would like a username to test out this weirdness for themselves - just drop me a pm with your preferred username.

a thought just occurred to me pics like
http://slinging.org/forum/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/yabb25/yabblogo.png


are there just wont show also in the right place as well and the CHMOD looks good as well so thinking it may be file corruption down to ascii vs binary

all photos/pics upload as binary can you try and re-upload yabb25/yabblogo.png as binary also check to see if it shows on the computer ok before the upload.

huh - okay that is weird.

As far as I know NOBODY on the forum can see pics and avatars. And you say you can ?

I've cleared every cache, cookie and setting on every computer I use and told everybody else to do the same.

Gone through every setting in the control panel many times.
And as previously stated paths were checked out on the previous issue.

Okay - currently got a computer I've just reinstalled windows on in my workshop - I'll see what shows up if I look at the forum with that.

For me, images in your forum as well as avatars are appearing just fine. Could this be a cache issue of some kind on your computer?

For instance, in this post I can see the member's avatar, and I can also see the picture they've posted.

Are you unable to see those two items?

Meanwhile, generally speaking ...

Any other ideas ?

If you'll allow me to guess with you ... a few places to check (based on YaBB 2.4) ...

Go to your Admin Center, then Forum Configuration, and then Forum Settings.

In the General tab, go to the following (and make sure it is checked):

"Enable if you want images in a post to appear in quotes of that post."

Another place to check is to go to to your Admin Center, then Forum Configuration, and then Advanced Settings.

In the Images tab, check all of your settings to see if any setting has been disabled.

Regarding the "Use the "greybox" for Images?", maybe trying different settings will make a difference.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

If you look at the link to your image you'll see the image is in the right place.

um no - not fixed. Why do they display for you ?
pretty sure paths are correct - after all the furore with the templates issue Smiley

yes - but the picture does not display as a picture in the thread. which it used to Smiley
We have  a lot of tutorial threads which are rendered mostly useless if you have to click on eachbloody link to see the next picture.

But I haven't re-run the maintenance controls since moving the yabbfiles directory.
BRB...

nah, that didn't do diddly.

Any other ideas ?
