Still having attachment troubles ( 05:09:19 SunAug 31 2003 )

I posted earlier in the bug forum about having trouble with attachments - Thanks to Pamster for your quick response! So I was able to upload a jpg file by changing the file extension to lower case, as suggested. :smile: However, I still can't manage to upload any wav files, even though the file extension for them is in lower case. I also deleted my temporary internet files as you suggested, but to no avail.

Please, can you think of any other reason why these files won't upload for me? It's driving me nuts. The opportunity to attach wav files to my posts was one of the features that most attracted me to setting up my board here with BestBoards... I'm gonna cry if I can't get it to work... :sad:

Is there something about audio files that BB doesn't like...? Or does it just not like me, personally... :sad:

That would be due to wav files not being support. Accepted types: gif, jpg, jpeg, png, js, swf, css, cgi, pl, php, asp, xls, doc, gz, tar. So you'll have to host the wav file somewhere else and post a link to it that way I'm sorry Alley_Cat. We have a BbCode for audio, but the files need to be hosted elsewhere.

Just in case you haven't used it ALley_Cat here is the low down on the audio BbCode

Code:

Inserts a sound into the post. 
Usage:

Output:
(Inserts an audio clip into the post)

Oh. Okay... thanks, Pam. :smile: I don't suppose there are any plans (or a possibility) that wav files will ever be supported for attachments? *looks hopeful*

Thanks anyway, for the details of how to use audio files in posts. I'll do that. :dazzler:

:thankyou:

you're welcome Alley_Cat :thumb: ... you may want to check out this thread too.. there are some listings there for free hosting, I don't know if any support the WAV files though you'll have to check them out....

the thing with hosting outside is whatever host you sign up with could slow your board down..
