One other fact:  Unless you've set the wiki up to have per-page
attachments (which I doubt), I believe the default configuration is
for attachments to be stored in Uploads/ByWikiGroup.  When you use the
syntax Attach:Groupname/Pagename/file.ext, the Pagename doesn't have
to be the one where you're using the image - I think it actually
doesn't even have to be one that exists.

Happy to help - there's so little I can do to contribute.  Happy wiki-ing,
