All attachments are private..?

Post by lurkio » Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:33 pm

All images (and possibly all other attachments) in forum posts now seem to be inaccessible unless you're logged in. ("You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.")

Anyone know why?

There are various forum settings. One of which controls if attachments are available to anyone, or are only available to members that are logged in.

I don't know if anything has changed recently, as I only normally use the site when logged in.

Until sometime today, all attachments were available to anyone, even if they weren't logged in.

BTW some forums have the requirement to join and log-in as standard before a user can access attachments, like www.atari-forum.com. While other forums do allow anyone to access attachments.

Maybe an update to the forum software took place and flipped the setting?
