    Your upload has passed.
    https://music-electronics-forum.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=50676&d=1539171851

    What is magic or where am I wrong?
    The fact that a single download passes is not a solution.
    The download should generally be frendly, so that the schematics can be maintained up to date

    Download this schematic on to your PC and try uploading to the forum.

    Thank you.

    My PC uses XpSp3 and Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit).

    Is it operational upload .pdf files?

    I wish I knew. I have no idea why some can upload and others can't.
    For admin: I'm using stock Chrome with Windows 10 and I'm able to upload pics, if it helps to figure out what's going on.

    That's my rig. I just tried to change my security features but it will only SHOW me what's happening and doesn't give me the option to change it. It didn't even say I had to be logged in as the administrator or anything.?. I have enough on my plate that I'm not real savvy with this "S".

    Loud thinking.

    If members communicate with the forum independent from the user's operating system, it is logical that upload attachments should also be independent from the user's operating system.

    Works for me too.
    The file size is 135kB.
    My PC also uses XpSp3 and Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit) the same as vintagekiki reported.

    "Insert Picture" works when I select the option "Run as Administrator" when starting Chrome (on Windows 10). Looks like a security problem.
    But "Manage Attachments" still does not work.

    I don't see the insert Picture?
    Or the run as Administrator.
    Where is that? Is that a win 10 thing?

    I'm not sure about Linux, but in Windows, you right click on the app (Chrome in this case), and there is an option "Run as administrator". Insert Image is just the little picture of a picture in the reply box.

    I might have fixed it...

    Here's a picture I took while out for a walk a few days ago:

    It's a 2.48 MB file, so that probably takes care of the size limit issue. As to the inconsistent upload results for different members, and the possible insecure connection somewhere in the process, the mystery continues.

    But that's just re-attached. I can do that. I am unable to upload NEW images directly from my computer.

    I'm not positive what your asking, T. When you open the reply box, there's a row of options at the top. Hover over the one that looks like a picture and it will say "Insert Image". Just click it and choose whether from Computer or from URL. If from computer, click the upload file(s). Click OK. Is that what you meant?

    Might this be an issue with Java script or a security issue with Java? Is not the dialog box for uploads Java?

    For me "Manage Attachments" still does not work. Maybe it's time to contact vBulletin?
    There are some threads on their forum related to this problem: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...-via-vbulletin

    A comment that always appears after an unsuccessful download

    The following errors occurred:
    This asset is not currently used by any content that you have access to.
    The fact that an individual member "works" upload is not a solution, should "work" for all members.

    Try uploading some pdf file to the forum to check does "work" pdf upload.

    No trouble linking images from a URL. As you can see above. I just copied and pasted using the insert image icon. It's uploading images from my pooter that won't work. I never had to use an image hosting site before. If this doesn't resolve I may need to look into it I guess. Maybe there's something in the new format parameters that will only allow site hosted images? Assuming everyone is on freeking *interest or *acebook and so, designed for tracking activities? I just want to draw schematics and circuits and them show them to other members as needed. Really not interested in having to be witnessed by a tracker on what I post.

    I hope it doesn't come to that. It would be a real shame if posters keep using 3rd party image sites.When the image sites disappear or the user cancels their account then the images in the thread are gone and the historical usefulness of the effort that went into the postings is diminished or nullified. Other issues are the hosting sites that require registration, block downloading or reduce resolution. The MEF feature that allows attachments to be available within the post is really a great feature when it is working.

    I raised the limits on most file types recently; PDF is 8MB. If anyone needs to upload bigger stuff, let me know and I'll consider raising them again.

    I'll keep after these problems until they're fixed for everyone, but for the moment I've run out of clues to persue.

    When I tried adding and image from URL (with checked option: Retrive reference file ....), I got this error:
    <br /><b>Fatal User Error</b>:
    <ul><li>File system directory "/path/fo/mef/member/attachments/4/5/0/1" is not writable or cannot be found.
    Please create this directory; ensure the directory is writable or change the directory setting.
    </ul>Unable to proceed with save while $errors array is not empty in class <strong>vB_DataManager_AttachmentFiledata</strong>
    in <strong>..../includes/class_dm.php</strong> on line <strong>843</strong><br />

    Can you check it?
    I also found out that I use 35MB for my attachments. Is there a limit for summary attachment size?
