hi. i think i'm getting closer, but i still need some help.
i'm trying now to work with MakeLink to convert the Attach: code to the <img> url

the example on http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/MakeLink makes it seem like this should be a simple conversion:

	Invocation:MakeLink($pagename, "Attach:foo.gif", , , $ImgTagFmt) 
	Result:"<img src='.../uploads/foo.gif' alt='' />"

but in my situation it doesn't seem to work out so happily in the end. on my system, if i do

MakeLink($pagename, "Attach:testimage.png", null, null, $ImgTagFmt);

the result is:
<img src='http://mysite.com/Attachtestimage/png' alt='$LinkAlt' title='$LinkAlt' />

and if i add the groupname, as in: 
MakeLink($pagename, "Attach:group/testimage.png", null, null, $ImgTagFmt);

... i get nothing

what's going wrong?
