    Suddenly today, I repled to a thread and pushed Manage Attachments button and it winked normally. But it didn't take me to the attachments page.

    Even when I edited my reply and when I made a new reply I cannot attach an image.

    Did I reach my attachments limit or something?

    I 'm sure there is a limit on every forum software, usually on MBs. Also, increasing this cap takes an administrative intervention.

    Is it possible that you delete a couple of your old uploads for the sake of testing? You can delete your attachments from the attachment manager. The link is on your profile page->Customize Profile->Attachments, on the bottom left.

    After we do the diagnosis, we 'll probably be able to solve it.

    Now it works fine. I didn't do anything to make it work.

    Today I noticed I have the same problem and I only have one image uploaded. So I shouldn't have reached a limit

    Two things, have you tried a different computer on a different IP, and have you tried a different browser?

    Thanks, It must be something new with the firewall at work or something. I tried on several different computers with differnent browsers. I tried on my phone and everything seamed to work fine.

    Many cases it is something as simple as a popup blocker.

    I had the problem for only 15 minutes then it fixed itself by itself.

    I've read other reports of squirreliness, so I suspect the server was reset.

    I wish I could be of more service. It works for me in this thread.

    However, it took a few seconds after the page load for the editor toolbar buttons to be functional. Could it be that the site doesn't load properly in your browser? Do the other buttons work?

    A moment ago I still could not attach this schematic in the original thread. Let me try it again here:
    (Yes, it works in this thread but not in the original thread)

    Which thread was it? Could it be another complication of the >20 chars bug?

    It has been mentioned by jrap the site is going through some reconfigurations in the background. It is possible you are hitting it in the middle of this. Please keep us posted.

    Hello,

    I just got an email reaction from jrap.
    The attachment problem should be solved.

    Please report any issues with posting attachments here, if they still occur.

    I just tried to "edit" a posting, and clicked manage attachements ... the popup never materialized. I can get to manage attachments when I start a new reply in the thread.

    I had the problem last night and today ... when I tried to edit a posting.

    And speaking of limits ... what is the limit for members? I don't know when I started to use .png format but I do know I have a few larger files [pdf format] as attachments. Just curious on the limits if any.
