If I go to the attachment control panel, the attachment is listed and I can click on the attachment file and view the attachment. It just doesn't display in the post. This is on the PC and the Mac.
Check viewtopic.php and viewtopic_body.tpl. The edits to those might have gotten wiped out.
The edits didn't get wiped out, but permissions on the attachment_files/thumbs needed to be changed.
I can't explain it why they weren't set, but on the unix box, I copied entire directories. I made a backup of my entire forum directory, before copying files from my testforum into my live forum. When I messed things up, I copied the backup I made. After several tries, I installed the mods from the testforum into the live forum properly. Possibly in all this, the thumbs directory didn't have write permission.
