    I've just installed Forums on a test site. I've got it all working, I think, except attachments. Users can upload attachments apparently without any problem - but trying to view them fails. For example, I uploaded a jpg file, and it appears as a broken link, both as a thumbnail, and when added into the body of the message. Doc and pdf files apparently upload, but again, cannot be downloaded - there is nothing there, the file size for download is given as 0 bytes, though the attachment part of the message gives the correct file size.

    Looking in my uploads directory, the jpg file appears as xxx_thumb.jpg, and xxx.attach. The doc and pdf files appear as yyy.attach - rather than as yyy.doc. They are also the correct sizes in that directory.

    I changed the directory attributes from 755 to 777 just in case, but that made no difference.

    Any ideas on why this is not working?

    Thanks in advance.
