Attachment download count not accurate

Post by invenio » Fri Aug 17, 2018 1:32 pm

I noticed a minor annoyance on my v3.2.1 board. The attachment download count does not seem to be accurate. It does not seem to be registering the downloads.

For example, on this thread it lists the attachments in the first post as never being downloaded which is not the case:

https://www.conradjohnsonowners.com/vie ... f=6&t=1259

The download counts however are not zero across the board so it's not that it never is counted, for example:

https://www.conradjohnsonowners.com/vie ... hp?f=6&t=6

I know it's a minor thing but does anybody have an idea why it's not working correctly? Thanks for all your help.

Ordinarily, when one uses the phpBB attachment feature to attach .jpeg files, they are displayed in the post as an image, not as a link. How are you attaching these? Have you defined .jpegs as documents? Can I see a screenshot of the Edit screen for that post?

See attached image of post in edit mode as requested.

I don't recall making any changes in the attachment setting of phpbb so it should be all default settings.

What is the original source of these files? Did they reside on your local computer before you uploaded them as attachments? Can you attach the smallest one of them to a post here in this topic?

I actually didn't make the post but they are standard jpeg image files. I have attached the smallest one in the example post I referenced.

Keep in mind that this has occurred in many posts where people are uploading pictures so it's not an isolated event and not just from my own personal posting.

You probably have images not displaying in posts, like this user here: viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2474336&p=1502724 ... #p15027241

Thanks for the link, but it seems my setting are correct as recommended in that topic:
In your User Control Panel, in Board Prefs / Edit display options
Make sure “show images within posts” is set to Yes.

There is also a global setting like that in your Admin control panel.
Posting / Attachment settings / Images / show images inline
What an unusual thing. Again, it's only minor and I can just wait to see if it resolves when I upgrade to v3.2.3, but just wanted to see if anybody had a similar issue.
