Invalid file specified

Yes, I know that, "Invalid file specified" means that the correct image was not uploaded, but.....there seems to a lot of talk here and there on submitting an article with an image problem. I'm getting dizzy looking at all these posts....still can't find a resolution or even see if there is one. My question is this:

1) If someone actually types their article in and gets "Invalid file specified"..either they made a mistake by uploading a .bmp file or whatever....now when they go back, the work is gone. Has a solution to this been found?



2) Which file has the line, "(Valid file extensions: jpg, jpeg, png, gif)"? Because I want to add to this... to stress the point to the submitter.



3) Which file has the text for the notification that you had gotten an article because, although I can receive html emails, I'm getting:

A new article submission has been received, titled test6. Please login to your <a href="http://www.PhysicianAssociate.Com/forums/admincp/vbarticles.php?do=approve">AdminCP</a> to either validate or delete this article submission.

I need to fix it because I'm simply getting the "<a href=" text with it.



4) THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART....I WAS GETTING THE IMAGES UPLOADED CORRECTLY WITH NO PROBLEM. THEN, ALL OF A SUDDEN I GO TO SUBMIT AN ARTICLE AND I GET, "INVALID FILE SPECIFIED". NOW, IT WAS WORKING BEFORE....ANY IDEAS ON WHY I CAN NO LONGER SUBMIT AN ARTICLE BECAUSE OF THIS? ANY HELP...AND I REPEAT...ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Thank you very much.

I tried being patient....originally posted on March 5, 2005....bump

It appears that some GIF files work...while others don't.

Same problem here. Only I can't make ANY article. Even one without images gives me the "Invalid file specified" message.

I'm dead in the water.

encountered same problem on a fresh install... but it only occurs if i have no article icon... cuz the article icon is mandatory...

After i used a image for the article icon... nothing was posted... but i can check the FAQ's for the latter...

I was having the same problem with invalid file specified. So i created a blank image 1px x 1px and called it blank.gif for the article icon, and that seems to do the trick

I finally got the article to 'post' if you want to call it that, It now shows up on the front page, but when my users or myself click to read the article nothing comes up but a blank page :-/ Any ideas yet?

I think i am just going to abandon the idea until this script gets some things sorted out. Its nice, but i'm gonna look for something else.

Keep up the good work on this one though.
