forum seems to be giving me some hard problems in seeing the attached images. None the less I am sure it's just a temporary thing, probably a small bug.

it seems to break sometimes. Which browser are you using and whats the problem?

Nothing's been changed to the backend recently.

Its always been an intermittent problem.

Sometimes the attachments window is white, never appears, or things dont actuallt upload

I've never seen that problem -- IE7 on Vista Home.

Same. Ie7 on vista home, but ive had it on firefox on xp too

It only happens rarely.

Sometimes too the attachments show up as a red X or a black square in the post.

I've had it before, but ever since I formatted my pc, the problem seems to have gone.
I've always used firefox.

Yeah it just seems like a randomly occuring daniweb problem
