New installation on Joomla 1.7. Unable to attach a file, regardless of browser.

Also - feature request.. Would be nice to have a way to embed an image into the post.

Please help. Unable to use the forum yet.

Read your documentation on MooTools, but I believe Mootools is built right into Joomla 1.7 now, and not plugin.

Help!

Hello there,
I still have no resolve on this matter.

I have looked through other threads, and I am really not sure where to go with this.
I checked with my hosting company, and they meet all of the requirements indicated in your documentation.

Help, anyone!
Thanks

When you looked at other topics, you would have seen that there are many causes why users cannot upload attachments.

The most common cause is folder/file permission: your webhosting company may have told you that your site meets the minimum requirements, but have you checked that all folders and files have been setup with the recommended permissions? In other words, please read Securing Kunena .

The next most common reason why files cannot be uploaded is because the files, themselves, are too big or are of an unauthorised MIME type. These must be allowed also in your Joomla Global Configuration. When all else fails, reset Kunena configuration settings back to their defaults and try to upload a simple (say 1 Kb) .jpg file. That's what I would do.

The next most common reason why files cannot be uploaded is because there's something else getting in the way (another Joomla extension for example - badly written Joomla templates are a prime example of this). The easiest way to establish if this is the case is to have a test site (bare-bones Joomla 1.7.3, no other Joomla extensions or modifications, and Kunena) and see if you can upload images with that. If you can upload images then look at what's different between your live site and the test site.

The last most common reason why people cannot upload files is because there is something seriously broken on their sites (possibly a half-completed installation, or very badly written code) that requires more involved investigation. This usually means enabling both Joomla debug mode and Kunena debug mode and looking to see if there are any error messages; it can also mean having to analyse the Apache server log files. Not very appetising, I know.

I hope I've given you a few ideas to experiment with. Good luck.

Ok, so I've had the same issue as the guy above, and have been pulling my hair out, (what little is left if it) trying to get this to work properly.

I have not been able to find anything with the Global Configuration that allows me to ensure the MIME types are correct.

Thanks,
Marko

Three questions for Markocius:

(1) Does this issue occur with K 1.7.1?

(2) Does this issue occur with K 1.7.1 Blue Eagle (default) template?

(3) Does this issue occur if you have the Kunena menu? (Do you know how to setup the Kunena menu?)

Not all versions of PHP support different MIME types. You can disable MIME type checking in K 1.7.1:

Forum Configuration » Uploads » Images » Check MIME Types = No

Does this help?
