    So what's your point? I'm sure just about every system imaginable has been utilized at one time or another along with users replacement upgrades over the years that this has been a malfunction.

    If it works so well for you how about posting a couple of examples of a controlled sequence of attachments. One with just a 1,2,3,4 sequence and one with a combination of text and controlled sequence.

    Default Testing Photo Upload

    Let's run some tests and see what happens...

    Step 1: When creating a new post/reply, scroll down to the Additional Options and click the Upload Photos button.

    Step 2: Click the Add Files button near the top right of the new window that pops up.

    Step 3: Click the Select Files button and find your photo on your computer. Repeat until you have all photos.

    Step 4: Click the Upload Files button.

    Step 5: After photos have uploaded, they will automatically be listed in the Attachments box across the bottom of the window. Click the Insert Inline button.

    Now hopefully I have a Welcome Back photo followed by a frog saying "excellent".

    Default Testing Photo Upload, no enhanced uploading

    Now a test with "Enhanced Attachment Uploading" set to off.

    This should be welcome message, then frog.

    Default Testing Photo Upload, no enhanced uploading, part 2

    ...And now frog, then welcome message.

    By the way, instructions for using the basic uploader:

    Step 1: When creating a new post/reply, scroll down to the Additional Options and click the Upload Photos button.

    Step 2: Click the Browse button next to the first blank box and find your photo. Repeat for each photo you want to upload.

    Step 3: Click any of the Upload buttons...I'm not sure why they have two here.

    Step 4: I had to scroll down a little in the upload window to see that it had added the file names for both my images below all the upload boxes.

    Step 5: Scroll down to the very bottom and click the Close Window button. Look below the Upload Photos button to see the names of your photos listed. They will automatically be attached to your post.

    Default Questions?

    It seems to be working okay for me, as far as putting the images in the correct order I specify whenever I try to upload. Can anyone who is experiencing this issue try to follow the steps outlined above and let me know how it goes?

    Other information I would love to know:

    1) Your operating system (Windows XP, Windows 7, etc.)

    2) Your browser including the version (Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 16, etc.) You can usually find this by clicking the Help tab on your browser and going to the "About (IE/Firefox/etc)" option.

    3) Go to your BB Settings and click the General Settings from the left column. Scroll to almost the bottom and tell me if Enhanced Attachment Uploading is set to On or Off.

    And yes, Old Magnet, it does make a difference! Internet coding standards change all the time and some browsers follow them better than others. vBulletin offers different uploading options to help accommodate all the different browsers and their compatibility issues. Internet Explorer is especially notorious for doing unusual, inexplicable things with websites, but since it's what most people use we generally can find ways to make things work for everyone.

    Any info you can provide would be very appreciated!

    Try it again with four various size attachments.

    All of the steps work except final uploading is random.

    My enhanced attachment uploading is on.

    I'm using Internet Explorer 8
    The operating system is an older Windows XP version 5.1
    Available memory is 3.1gb

    At one time I was using Firefox but have since returned (long ago) to Internet Explorer. Had same issue with Firefox.

    No other issues and the upload sequence is not a problem on other similar hosted sites eg: Heavy Equipment Forum.

    I can't believe that everyone is using the same system with the same issues. Appears to be a programming issue to me.

    Thanks for looking into this long standing problem. At least it's past the denial stage......maybe this time.

    Default Big photo / Little photo Upload Test

    Testing with some large images of various sizes...I want to see a shirt, a hat and a Best Show on Tracks tag in that order.
