Quote from: Sir Osis of Liver on October 07, 2021, 06:12:39 PMDon't have remotest clue why original code was damaging attachments.

This sounds very similar to some earlier issues, in which stray whitespace characters were getting added to the bottom of attachments, corrupting them...  This was in turn caused by stray whitespace in the source code that had been added inadvertently.

But why would anything in index template affect file uploads, it's strictly presentation?  Did a hex dump on bad file, completely different from original file, but no whitespace up top.  And it loads normally in image editor.  If you look at attachments to my previous post, all the same image but second one was attached to post on OP's forum and d/led from attachment link.  It's normal in editor but won't display on his forum or here.
