I don't have an exact date, but clicking Attachments always displayed of list of pictures (just like a thread list, spanning many pages) that I had physically uploaded and attached to posts, going back to when I first joined this site. Still did a month or so ago, noticed it no longer worked when I posted the error message above, obviously, trying to get a picture I knew was here.
The advantage to doing that was, that once uploaded and posted, I could simply link the picture when I wanted to use it again, rather than uploading it again, taking up additional server space every time I wanted to share it in a different thread.
Click User CP
(under Miscellaneous on the left-hand menu). The option is still there, but the functionality now gives the error message I posted above.
Not crazy here, this function used to work just fine until very recently. It was also a real time saver in finding pics, rather than trying to remember what thread you actually posted it in.
Here's an example pic I **KNOW** is in my attachments. If you edit the post, you'll see it's an image link, not an attachment to this post. It originally existed in my attachments as "minnow.jpg"
By the way, I tried the Attachment function from a couple of different computers and my cell phone -- same error. It's the software that's broke, not the computer. Hope this helps!
