It displays for me. I'll need to figure this out.

Perhaps you have an elevated account that's able to see the file, or maybe your request for the file is being serviced from cache. Or, maybe there's some other issue.

During the team call on May 2, 2019, other members of the team were able to demonstrate this issue.

When I follow the links posted by K7ZCZ using Chrome in "Incognito" mode, I get the same results that he describes. Perhaps it's a permissions thing (as mentioned)?

What I could find is a setting that changed during the upgrade that modified the attachment and thumbnail view permissions to the Announcements forum. That is the cause of the problem referenced in the links in "Steps to Reproduce". So that problem specific to those attachments in that forum is resolved. That said - it had nothing to do with the age of the post or attachments. (permissions thing)

If there are other attachments that can't be viewed, I'd need some of those examples and I'll investigate it. I think there is some parameter in vBulletin that causes posts to be deleted after a certain amount of time. I'll look into that.

Can anyone confirm that this is resolved?

For me, the given repro steps now show the expected images.
