That's weird; can you try another browser to see if the problem replicates?
...Once you have chosen the filename you should then be able to click "(Insert Attachment 0)" underneath the "choose File" button and it should go in.
Have you tried inserting the item from scratch when you first post the message?
5) Click the "(Insert Attachment 0)" green wording directly below the Choose file box you just clicked.
One thought - you've not got some really ancient historical cache running have you? Like some ancient js cached away from the old version of the site?
Maybe you have privileges in the forum which mean you can't reproduce the problem
... There is a way to solve this, but it would involve resetting everyone's accounts to defaults ...

Well Chris, I might have been over reacting there, but I got awfully frustrated by not being able to post a new question due to the disappearance of the 'logo'. Don't know what changes you made there but I definable prefer a simple text button or similar, telling me 'create question', instead of some logotype telling me nothing. And I do find a problem with this site updating very slowly as I go back to the questions others made, sometimes extremely slow. And it is specific to TNS, don't have those problems with any other site. Anyway, I started to wonder if the missing 'link' to 'post a question' now meant that we had to make them through some moderator, which indeed made me blow my top, as zztop express it. And for that I'm sorry, not as much as you would like probably, but that's life, isn't it What really pi**es me of is all those functions I need to allow to get this site to work. Using Noscript (Firefox) I think it should be enough with me allowing TNS. The old one didn't need any of it to work. Then again, possibly it failed in some other areas, but none that I noticed. And it was fast Chris, this is no longer a fast site.And yes, no 'global possibility' to turn of smileys, changing the layout of all I've written before. Small things maybe but irritating just the same.
I'm not joking about the time it takes to load a page though, and I've changed provider finding the same thing to be. You might want to blame it on my version of Firefox, but I don't expect that to be the truth.

You might want to blame it on my version of Firefox, but I don't expect that to be the truth.Without Ad-Blocking, viewing TNS is much slower than other forums I use.Some of those forums have adverts, but those Ads don't have animation or video, which uses lots of CPU & bandwidth.Here's a TNS page in FireFox without addons, (so no adblocking), basically stuck at ~55% CPU ... animated adverts means high CPU.gif (306.13 kB . 800x575 - viewed 609 times)Constantly using ~55% CPU makes navigating the site very sluggish.For me viewing a TNS page with adverts blocked, CPU usage is <5%, once the page has loaded.
... I must admit that I've not noticed a problem on my machine (I do my testing on an ancient laptop, although I mainly use chrome) ... I suppose it might reflect the kinds of ads that you are being shown...
@chris I'm having same problem as RD. Try to attach a 700k png and hover over insert attachment only gived text marker not a selection arrow!
Since a moderator closed the thread "Is Hurricane Harvey evidence of geoengineering?", i cannot see the lasts posts in my standard Firefox browser on windows 7. I'm not sure why this is happening. Using Tor however I can read the full posts without problems...
What is the last post you can see, what is missing? I'll check on Firefox to see whether I can see them.
when I log in as nonmod test account I can only see 1st post on each page of the thread!
I cannot use the RSS feed of the recent topics in the forum. The feed XML markup is missing the "link" element for some entries.
Thanks @tkadm30 - can you please post a screenshot of what you are seeing.I have had to play with the feed bit to prevent it being populated with some inappropriate content. It may be that some of the absent items are intentionally skipped (things like moved posts and deleted items).
Sorry @tkadm30 I cannot make head nor tail of the material on the link. It would be really helpful to have a graphical screenshot so that I can see what you are seeing; this will give me more clues as to what is going on.
