Thx Brink for the tut.

I hope that my question is not too far off topic to be posting in this thread:

When replying to another member's post, if I stay in the edit mode* too long, my attached files/images go away (as in: they do not show in the preview of the post and they are not available for insertion into the post - although the text referencing them is still in the post from when they were originally inserted. And previewing the post does not return an error due to these missing files). I understand the need for running such a clean up routine on the server, I was just wondering if you knew the time limit before the cleanup occurs.

*to be clear, I'm talking about the Quick Reply editor or the Advanced editor - not the edit mode where I'm fixing a typo or the like in an existing post. However, my guess is that these files all end up in a temp folder until the post is made. Any file that has been in that folder too long is deleted. If that is what is happening, then I guess that the cleanup would impact all edits: Original posts, edits of existing posts and either editor for a reply.


Thx again for the tut and for all that you do as a forum admin.

Hello UsernameIssues,

I believe it's around 30 minutes before the time-out period, and you lose what you uploaded in a post. I usually find that typing what you want first, uploading and attaching images last, then submit the post. This way you can always edit it more if needed afterwards without losing them.

Yes but how do you select that portion of the screenshot that you want to save. It's just not working for me. Thanks.

Hello Alphux, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I find that using Paint with step 6 in the tutorial below is a easy way to crop a screenshot, clear Paint, and paste the crop into Paint to select what you want.

Hope this helps,
