Random Image adding

Posted by BULiK on Nov 19 2012 - 09:33 PM

A puzzling issue just came up. I posted this post with my iPad (Using the regular version of the site on Safari, not the Mobile version), and for some reason it added a picture to my post. This is strange, because I was using the "Quick post" thing at the bottom of the page, which has no option for attaching files. Also, I have no clue what this picture is, and is appears to be made of 0 bites. Also, I attempted to remove it in an edit, but something popped up that stated the action could not be made. Does anyone have any ideas about why this is caused?

This happened to me as well, as seen here.

I've made a number of posts via an iPad, and this has never happened to me. What version of the iPad are you using?

Maybe you should printscreen the coding of the post

I wasn't even using an iPad. I was on my laptop when I made the post. And the coding doesn't have anything to do with it because my post was just plaintext.

Yes but if you edit your post you can toggle on coding, nothing can exist without code so the image must have some sort of code.

It's not a code. It's a glitch, which is why it was posted here. I would have fixed it if were just a little code.

Can be true but it could be a piece of code that wouldn't want to go away

That's a type of glitch, though...

If it were a bit of code, then it could be removed through an edit. There isn't a BBCode parser like that for attached images. It's an option certain forums using the IP.Board software can enable for making posts. BZPower has this feature disabled for non-premier members.

Just looked at the processed HTML of the page I had the glitch occur on. It's appearing in an HTML element that is supposed to be disabled (div#attach_wrap). There is absolutely no way that it could have been done by a code that any member, staff or not, could do anything about.

My solution to the staff, seeing as we don't have the attached files ability as is, is set the following CSS property:

div#attach_wrap { display: none; }

But can't premier members attach files? Or is it now replaced totally by the gallery? Of course, the gallery is indeed preferred in most cases since it's easier to work, but...

Yes, premier members can attach files to their posts. Although, I think the gallery only is for picture files. This makes this problem even stranger, because my friend had the problem in this issue, but wasn't a premier member

I've opened a support ticket with Invision on this. Not sure what's causing it.

I looked at the CSS, and Meiko is right, it has something to do with the division, 'attach_wrap'. Now, when I looked at the CSS, I saw this:


Above, there's the text "Attached Image" in <h4> tags. So perhaps taking out the #attach_wrap from the h4 coding would do something? Something doesn't seem right there at least.

There's also some code here that may have something to do with it:


I don't know if any of this helps, but I was just digging into the CSS and I thought that perhaps a few examples would do some good.


So it seems when we moved to the new board and deleted all the posts and topics we did not delete the attachments. Attachments have a link to the post id they are associated with. When a new post on the new forums with the same id as the post the attachment originally had was created, the attachment showed up on that post.

Thanks to Invision, we're in the process of clearing out the old attachments and this issue should be resolved.
