Can't view attachments?

Postby pennymachines » Thu Apr 18, 2019 12:30 pm

I received an email from a member today wondering why he was unable to view attachments (pictures) on certain pages.
The message he saw was, You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

That was what you would see if you visit pages in the Resources area when you’re not logged in.
If you are a member and log in first, you will see the pictures (or other attachments).

It’s the only part of the Forum restricted in this way. Because some of those files are large, viewing them consumes bandwidth, which is saved by restricting the area to members. It also encourages folk who’re sufficiently interested to join the community. The message used to be more helpful, but clearly got overwritten at some stage. Prompted by this query, I’ve changed it to, Only logged on members can view files attached to this post. To register is easy - and free.
