    Hi Mike,

    I had trouble uploading a zip attachment. I tried 3 times.

    http://forums.techguy.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=48306


    It goes up listed as the path to the folder on my hard drive. It downloads as attachment file. I had the poster rename that to me.zip and it works fine. At least for me it did. I am waiting to hear from him.

    Come to think of it, the path to the file sans filename is there in the post. I have seen that happen a few times recently.


    Thanks,
    Mo

    I agree. I swear I've never noticed it showing the full path before. Maybe a change due to the vB upgrades?
    If not due to a change, then I'm with you.. I think attachments should be listed with just the file name. I see no point it showing the full path to where the file was located on someone's local drive.

    Something's definitely going on with the attachment functionality since the updates...

    Looks like it's only a problem in Internet Explorer... FireFox is working fine for me.

    I'll keep playing with this to see what I can figure out.
