Many problems after update 3.1.6

Post by Tom49er » Tue Nov 17, 2015 12:58 am

Hi,

1. When I preview, all the attachments show up, but after I submit, I only see the name of attachment.

2. If I copy the URL form other website [img]url.gif[/img], it says
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct.

3.A lot of topics says: The requested topic does not exist.

How to correct these problems. Thank you

We prefer one issue per topic. Makes it easier for those users who search for an answer before posting.

Are you choosing the option to place the image inline?

That isn't a URL, it is a file name.

Hi,
Thanks for replying.

1. The first one is inline and no image shows, but it shows on preview
inline.jpg
2. Looking in the picture
img.jpg
3. This is one of them. When you click on any of them. You will see.
The requested topic does not exist.

I restore and then use Support Toolkit to clean database. Uploading the backup /files , store and config.php again. The problem still the same.

How to make it works. Thanks

Hi,
Thanks for time. I did, but it didn't restore.
I am not sure why. Although It shows some old attachment, it not accepts new inline attachment or image link.

So, you placed your old files back and your old database, purge the cache and is is not working?

Maybe this ?

That error: It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct. for me seems to be with the image size settings in Post Settings in the General tab in the ACP. I have this error with an extension I'm using and currently trying to figure that out. So you might want to look at your max image settings and set that to 0.

When I Googled this error I found an old phpBB post in circa 2007 saying it might have something to do with fsock open. Not sure what that is and if that's the case. I believe I tested if fsockopen was on from my host, but I can't remember the php script to do it.

Edit- Found this script for fsockopen.

Code: Select all

<?php
if(function_exists('fsockopen')) {
echo "fsockopen function is enabled";
}
else {
echo "fsockopen is not enabled";
}
?>
So place that code in a text file. Name it something like test.php. Upload it to your Public_html or www folder. Now go to yoursite.com/test.php and see the result.

Like I said, I have no idea if the image thing is fsockopen or not. But that's what I read.

Edit2-

Here's the topic I read. viewtopic.php?f=46&t=552607

Here's another. viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2091124

Hi,
Thanks for your time. I did change the setting but no luck about inline or link image.

This link shows the images. If I edit and add more link images, it shows the error
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct.
After I search all the folders, I find out in the /files folder has subfolders. I delete all the subfolders then it rebuilds by itself. Do this cause the error?

She is referring to the Files folder in the phpBB directory. The File folder holds the attachments.

Yeah, there shouldn't be any subfolders in there.

There could be if there was a MOD installed that "filed" the attachments (cannot recall its name)
