Attachments lost on message edit?

Post by sweh »

I wrote a message and had an attachment (a picture) that I had inlined to the message. Saved it and it displayed just fine.

I then edited the message and saved it... and the attachment got lost. I had to edit the message again and re-upload the picture.

This is twice it's happened to me now, so it's consistent :-)

Are you saving the post ‘save quick draft’ or ‘save draft’ or are you actually posting using ‘submit’?

I posted via submit, then went back and edited the message.

Well, as you can see from the test post I did, the photo that I attached and put in-line in my original post, is still there after two edits…

So I’m not sure what’s happening with your posts :?
