Multiple attachments (pictures) to the same post

Post by Montgomery Burns » Thu Mar 29, 2018 2:29 pm

Anyone else having a difficult time when attaching more than one picture to the same post? They get posted out of order, which may or may not matter. I experienced this myself on March 18 while posting these coins - after a few attempts, I gave up on trying to post them on the same post. I couldn't get each coin "aligned" with the line of text I wanted for each one. And now, a few other people mentioned weird behavior regarding attachments in the Portuguese-language forum. Just thought I'd bring it up.

My main problem with the attachments: I can't delete an attachment.

This post had 3 attachments (and still has them, against my will). Yesterday, I tried to include a fourth one but couldn't, so I assumed three was the limit. Then, I tried to delete all three attachments. Two of them are gone from the list of attachments (when I try to edit the post) but the images still show up. When I try to delete the third one, a progress wheel appears and stays there forever.

I believe this is happening since the last PHP update, but I'm no sure.

This seems to be phpBB bug 15506. This was scheduled to be fixed in phpBB 3.2.3 (not released yet), but I applied the fix to the 3.2.2 version that we're using, and attachments seem to behave better now.

There was a limit of three attachments, but I've now raised that limit to 10. I guess three was the default, and nobody had asked about the limit before.

Blank lines between pictures and text

Post by Castanhola » Mon Apr 16, 2018 11:48 am

There are one more strange behaviour with pictures, since last PHP update. Before the update, to have a blank line between the picture and the preceding text we need to add only one blanc line between them. But now, we need to add two blank lines to have one blank line between them.

Perhaps that change was made so that it would be easier to put pictures side by side, ie. not on top of each other?

Maybe, but it can change the look of old posts.
Thanks for your answer.
