Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

The MathModePlugin generates a 'cached' image under the pub folder of the WebHome topic for the web in which a formula appears. When the AutoAttachPubFiles 'feature' is turned on all of these images are displayed as attachments to the WebHome topic (on my installation this is ~200 files).

The workaround is to disable the 'feature' (I'm guessing at some point this silently became default behaviour because I'd never seen it before I patched up to 4.0.2 the other day?).

The probably fix is to update MathModePlugin to prefix it's images with an underscore. It is unlikely at best that the original author will be able to do this, I've tried to contact them in the past with no success.

Possible/probable patch now attached.

TWiki:Main.StephenGordon - 07 May 2006

A better approach is to store the images in the plugins private work area instead of trying to add them as attachments.


Fixed in Item2728
