What does "not downloadable yet" mean for an attached file?

Post by bobg56 »

I just tried to change things so that .pdf and .docx files could be attached. It seemed to work - I was able to attach files of both types. But after the submitting the post when I view it the attached files they all say "not downloadable yet". HOWEVER when I click on the filename I can download it. Still it's a serious problem because most users will believe the "not downloadable yet" note.

Thanks, Bob

As far as I can see there is no such message in phpBB core language files. Is this from an extension?

Thanks for your very prompt response David! All I can tell you is I don't think so. I hired a bright young guy to do the heavy lifting so I suppose it's possible. But we worked pretty closely on this and he ever mentioned any such extension. If it helps here's a screen shot of where the "not downloadable yet" message occurs, except now, having ignored the message and clicked on the filename which was then successfully downloaded, the text is changed to "(xx.xx KiB) Downloaded x time".

The word "downloadable" only appears in the Attachments settings pages in the ACP. It you are seeing it on a post, it is probably coming from an extension.

As default an attachment will be labelled as "not downloaded yet", are you sure this isn't what you're seeing?
