My forum is having an issue that some IE8 users cannot view .bmp files.





I am at a PC where I myself cannot see .bmp's on my own forum (v3.8.3), but here in this forum (v3.6.12) I can see them.

I can see there here with FF & IE8, your forum it looks like you have to sign up as the only appear as links.

Can see it using ie8 but not on http://www.mechmate.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1945. Make sure you have chmod access for attachment folder to 777 if you use directory saving method.

I am not using the directory saving method. Do you agree that you can see the .jpg files (kitten, etc), but not the .bmp files (red X'es) in http://www.mechmate.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1945 ? (which means that it is not a 777 access issue)

Solved the issue:

The Mime type for .bmp files was defaulted to Content-type: unknown/unknown

vB staff advised me to change it to Content-type: image/bitmap

which didn't work, and then Google told me that image/bitmap is unheard of, but that image/bmp is common.

Changed Mime type setting to Content-type: image/bmp and now it works fine.
