Not a bug Broken Image When Using Image Attachment On Another Thread

I don't know if this is a bug or intended to work. Here it is:

- I uploaded an image to a thread
- I took the attachment bbcode and used it on another thread
- Now, withing the session, the images appear just fine. But when I log off the images are broken & don't appear.

The usergroup permissions are there, visitors can see and download attachments.

You can't re-use the attach ID on another thread.

Just use the regular IMG BB Code tag and the full image path.

Using the image tag is likely what will make it broken.

But there's no way to reuse an attachment between threads without attaching it twice.

I see, uploading the same image over and over again takes a lot of resources. I'm better of uploading the images to the ftp and BBCODE them as usual.

I can confirm this.

If you use:
Code:
[ATTACH=full]4[/ATTACH]
in a different thread, I see "View attachment 4" as a clickable link that actually pulls up the image.

Using img tags to point to the actual location does work, however.
