• Can't seem to move files around

    From Codefenix@VERT/CONCHAOS to All on Saturday, February 11, 2023 11:09:55
    I'm trying to move files from my Main-Uploads directory to other directories from within the BBS.

    I list the files in my Uploads directory, press the sysop key M and select the file I want to move, then select the appropriate library & directory for it, at which point the file size color changes red and has a red hyphen next to it, which I assume denotes a file move in progress. I repeat this for the rest of the files I want to move, and exit the list. When I re-list the Uploads directory, I find that the files I tried to move are still there instead of having moved, and the file size color back to normal.

    I feel like I'm missing something obvious and skipping a step.

    No, that's the right steps, it just sounds like a bug. I tried it myself and could reproduce the behavior you're describing.

    Most likely the bug was introduced with the addition of the new filebase support (v3.19), but nobody's reported it before now.
