Images and avatars not displaying in posts
Jul 6th, 2013 at 4:14pm
Post Tools
so having recently upgraded and finally sorted out my yabbfiles and templates issues.
Thanks guys Smiley

I'm back to a problem I've had right from the get go with the update.

basically images: either atachments or [img] tagged links to images outside the attachments directory - do not display in threads.

The attachments are listed at the bottom of the page as links - regardless of whether or not I have the 'display file attachments' box ticked or unticked. The only difference is a line abaove the link.

Also avatars do not show up.

I've ticked and unticked every box I can find, changed around file permissions (small scale basis) of the attachments. Tride with assorted templates and style sheets.

None of that makes a darn bit of difference.
It all worked before the upgrade and as far as I've been able things are as close to how they were then as I can get it.

Just can not get images to display.

see pic below for what it looks like.

Should be two pictures and my avatar visible.

The avatar does show up on the templates preview page - just not on the board itself.

thoughts gentlemen please Smiley

Did you go through the maintenance controls in the admin section as outlined in the Quick Start Guide?

Quote:
Step 6  Then go to "Admin Center" => "Maintenance Controls" and run the "Rebuild Notifications Files" first!
Now run the other Maintenance Controls starting with "Rebuild Message Index" going through "Rebuild Members History."

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 ?

I think your path settings are wrong in Paths.pl

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

If you look at your Paths.pl everything does look right

Can you access your path settings through the admin center?
If so look just below this text that reads "This information may be useful for troubleshooting purposes", what path do you see there?

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 ...

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!

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.
