I Had RC 1 or 2  and after an upgrade and database restore I have all the attachments in all the messages but they show only as the links. New ones I upload do show normally. Is there anyway to get the old ones to display within the posts like they used to?

Thanks a lot

When you go to Admin==> Attachments And Avatars and, under Browse Files, click Attachments, do any of the older ones not showing up appear in that list?  If so, what sort of message do you get when you click the link for one of them?
My apologies, but I am taking a break from accepting PM requests for support.  If I am not currently assisting you, please do not ask as long as this notice is posted.  Thank you.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

Yes all the attachments show up and the list when I do that and the links also show up  in the posts and they all open as pictures if you click the links but they do not show open in the posts  yet all new attachments do.

Here is an example of the url of a pic that shows open within a post

Here is one that only shows the link

They both look normal
