Now that I've established myself as a thread hog, I have another question
Those attachments that are jpg/gif/png render in the post and if you click links to them, they show in a new window.
There are also links to attachments from my import that have non-images - so doc/pdf/rtf etc. However links in the post to these files give me the 'Oops! That page doesn’t exist or is private.' page in Discourse.
I've moved all the attachments into the same folder - /shared/uploads/default/original/attachments
So Discourse is happy to serve me images in that folder, but it it won't serve other file extensions in that folder.
For the record, yes, I've enabled heaps of file types to be allowed in settings (not sure that has much of a bearing on this though).
Is there something that Discourse sees differently about hosting images vs documents in that upload folder? Could it be solved?
Thanks again - I hope to be able to keep an eye on this thread and help anyone who has gone down the same path from esoTalk that I did.
