On my board attachments (graphics) are displayed in the Preview. A couple of people using different platforms have tried this with various graphics; small to medium in file and physical size. When you "Post New Thread" the graphic is displayed. Any idea(s) why this isn't working? I'm assuming, of course, that this is a feature that is included in 7.6.1.1?

what isn't working? your post says both are being displayed. I think you may have missed a word?

this sounds like a safari specific issue. i know exactly what's causing it, but was under the impression safari would be smart enough to read the file mime type, and display the images based on that.

the work around until this gets fixed, is to use a "proper" browser such as chrome or firefox. I'll work on updating the code to fix this safari hiccup for the next ubbt release.

thanks for reporting this, and the other safari related item from earlier today

Thanks..... FYI, perhaps I didn't make the report clear, but the problem is also present on a PC using Firefox (v. 52.6.0)and Opera (v, 36.0). In short, everyone who has uploaded a file (graphic) using either option has reported the same thing.... no display of the graphic when you click on "Preview Reply". I tried it here too and no display of the uploaded attachment (graphic). So, the issue isn't limited to my personal board.

it never did display in the preview reply. it's an attachment. not part of the entered text within the post.

the attachment manager lets you view the attachments connected to the post.

the post preview let's you preview the post content that was typed in the text box above.

the only location that attachment thumbnails are previewed at while creating/editing a post, is within the attachment manager.

edit:
Attached is a screenshot that displays the attachment previews.

Okay, I was under the misconception that with this new version the attached image would be displayed when you previewed your reply/post before actually committing to posting it. The ability to preview a post/reply with the attached image(s) would be a great feature to have for future versions.

Attachments exist in the temporary folder until the post is submitted; the preview for attachments exists, but is only in the attachments window (as of v7.6.x).
