Summary14463: Invitation/Reminder file attachments not working

We are having an issue where after adding a file to an invitation (or reminder, etc) email and saving, the HTML editor disappears and the code is shown, and the attachment disappears as well. In related news, when the HTML editor is not showing, clicking on the Add file button simply refreshes the page.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. upload file to the Resources section
  2. go to Email templates and click on the Add file button (Invitation email, Reminder email, etc.)
  3. select your file (you will see it listed - may not be related, but the Size doesn't show, just a dash)
  4. Scroll up and hit the Save button (HTML editor is not a simple text editor, file no longer listed)
  5. Hit the Save button again (HTML editor is back, file is still missing) (Note: if you try the Add file button before hitting Save again, the page simply reloads)

This issue was fixed a few months ago, so you should update your installation to the latest version.

There is still an isue.
It goes wrong when lime is installed on a subdomain.
IMHO it is an issue since Lime 2 and upto the current version. (update() function in emailtemplates.php)

In 'application/controllers/admin/emailtemplates.php' the update() function is trying to convert the uploaded file(s) to its URI (url).
When lime is installed on a domain e.g. '' it is works.
But if it is installed on '' the uploaded file is not to be found by its uri (url) and therefore not saved as an attachment!

But because it is saved on the right spot by kcfinder and kcfinder is finding and displaying the file... I gather that kcfinder is capable of finding the right uri (url)
So… I should mimic/use/copy the function found in kcfinder to determine the url! That will make is work in all circumstances.

I just tried to test this issue using my account on LimeSurvey SAAS hosting on subdomain
LS version is 3.15.9.
It works as expected, can not reproduce this issue.
Please update to the latest LS version.

I finally got out development server updated to Version 3.17.3+190429. The problem still exists for us.

I just checked again and it works on my local machine.
I guess problem is something with your server configuration.
See if any javascript errors or blocked requests are showed in developer console (F12).
