I can not access forum/files/attachment.jpg via http

Post by Idefix4 » Wed May 19, 2010 10:16 am

Hi, I've been trying to access www.forum.com/files/attachment.jpg to get the URL so I can upload it on Photobucket without downloading it on my pc and re uploading it again. On phpbb2 attachment mod this was possible, and on phpbb3 is not? How can I set this up? Thanks in advance.

Downloading it and upload it on photobucket. ;) The files are encoded or something..

Well I need an URL that looks like www.site.com/forum/files/picture.jpg because otherwise can not be uploaded on photobucket.

You cannot access them that way. You either have to access them via file.php, or download to your computer first.
