Hi @sam, thanks for the suggestion, last night I updated last week’s release via terminal window (cd /var/discourse, git pull, .launcher rebuild app) and the problem still exists. We don’t use Amazon s3 storage.
I don’t have any explanations for your problem, but note that you can paste images directly into the composer. You don’t need to first paste into some other application to create and image to then upload.
Got the message that docker version not supported
Installed docker-ce, now is my forum gone?
After running the latest Discourse update a few days ago, clicking the the download icon opens .txt files in a browser instead of downloading them, yet no Discourse settings were changed. Yet now .png files are displaying properly. So a deeper problem is occuring.
I implemented the Discourse/Docker periodic manual full update instructions and watched error messages.
All updates .launcher rebuild app I received an error message that docker 17.05 is not supported, minimum required is 17.06.02. Ubuntu has changed the package name from docker-engine to docker-ce. Is it safe to install docker-ce, as this won’t be an upgrade? Because of the docker version preventing app rebuild, my forum is down. What do?
If you wanted a detailed explanation: The Docker image hosts the software (ruby, the code, postgres, etc) that your forum runs on. Discourse stores your data outside the image, so these images are safe to be shut down and upgraded when there’s a new version out. Your data (forum posts, users, site settings) will be restored when it restarts, and that will be mounted onto the new base image.
ok the forum’s back, the latest Discourse & Docker versions are installed.
But we’re still getting the new improved problem, where .pngs are visible yet trying to download .txt files (and other non-image files) to be displayed in a browser - we’re not getting the download/save window dialog (This change happened when the latest Discourse update was installed a few days ago). See this post on our forum: https://forum.valentina-project.org/t/test-downloads-val-vit-txt-pdf
File sharing is really important in providing support to our user community.
Any thoughts on what could cause this?
Thanks @joshua. But How can this be a bug if .zip & .pdf files are downloaded correctly, but others aren’t? The download and display functions are working, the choice of whether to download or display the selected file is what’s a bit muddled.
Is there some method in the code which selects how to process each file type when the download icon is selected?
Can I get to it and make a custom change for our pattern & measurement & text files?
