  • Can't see video or image threads created in profiles through media ablums

    If I create a video in my profile media the thread is not viewable by any user group including super admin.

    First I create the video link

    Click image for larger version  Name:	create video.jpg Views:	1 Size:	314.0 KB ID:	4375200

    Then I post it and verify it is created:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Video Thread Created.jpg Views:	1 Size:	367.7 KB ID:	4375201


    Then I can't view the content of the thread. Even replies are not viewable:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Can't view thread.jpg Views:	1 Size:	335.0 KB ID:	4375202

    In the Albums category you can see the thread but clicking it results in a blank: https://www.christforums.org/special/albums

    I get the same problem here on this site. When I click the music album that I created for a video it doesn't display the thread.

        I can see and play the video thread here on vb.com when I click into your Music Album.

        Though from your experience it seems buggy or less intuitive than it should be. Special/Albums isn't designed for direct access. They removed that back in the Beta and haven't replaced it. No links should appear to that location anywhere in the software. I suggest writing up your experiences as JIRAs so we can improve the process and availability of this style of content.

          I can't see it here on vb.com when I try to open it Wayne. Is there a permissions setting preventing me from opening the albums here on vb.com too?

          What you have expressed seems to be the issue I am having. Just curious as to whether you can open any of the special albums in the below link. If so, then it would indicate permissions not set up right? Even here on Vb.com? As is right now a person creating a video link etc in their profile media albums just creates content that goes into a black hole. Once the album is created it can't be opened again on my site to see any responses a person might of received on the media they posted.

          None of these too are opening for me. Did you see this here on Vb.com? https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/special/albums

          If this is only a permissions issue can you provide the proper settings. Again, I am unable to even open the album created here on Vb.com.

          Thanks,
          William

              Permissions on the Special Channels shouldn't be changed at any time. Nothing should open when you go to Special/Albums. That is not the correct way to open this content.

              You need to access it from your profile by clicking on the Media Tab and then entering the Music folder that you have created. It is not designed to be accessed by any other means.

                Just to verify. When clicking the album the content appears but there are two links circled in red that lead to the special/albums directory:

                  And when someone posts two links one to the thread and the other to special/albums appears in the latest topic module:

                    According to the design that was stated to me, those links would be bugs.

                      Looks like the Jira I completed is a duplicate of this one: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-16886

                      It is considered a "minor" bug but it is presenting headache for me because people using the forum keep clicking the links and reporting the issue. Hope that it is escalated because this has existed since 5.2.5 and still exists.

                        The goal would be to fix the links so they go to the proper pages and the Special channel wouldn't be shown at all.
