No Attachment Section - flash99 - 2021-12-19


There is no Attachment Section showing when i create a New Thread.

In admin the attachment option is enabled.

The user group attachment option is enabled.

I enabled the default theme, it also does not show.

Is there some other setting that needs to be enabled?

When attachment settings are enabled, then first check the templates and missing files (*.js) - especially when you did an upgrade of the version.


RE: No Attachment Section - flash99 - 2021-12-23

I installed the latest version 1.8.29.
I never upgraded to that version.

I am using the Carbon Theme by Rooloo.

On my dummy domain site its also having the same problem.
I use it to install plugins before i install them on the main domain.

I have disabled almost all the plugins on my main site, no luck.

I have run out of ideas to try on the current install.

Last option
I might try setup another dummy domain & do a fresh install with no plugins.

Since MyBB changed the attachment screen to drag and drop as of 1.8.27 (I think it was) - check your theme has upgraded templates for post_attachments_attachment, post_attachments_new, and post_javascript.  Your theme last upgraded 2020-05-13 and is likely based on the old system.

Thanks for your help nixer55.

It was as simple as that.

I installed another theme.
The attachment option is showing now.
