Attachment viewing / permissions


New member
It is rather odd that you can have a forum where certain members are not allowed to post or view attachments and yet the screenshots for these attachments appear as normal.

For instance:

The image attachment screenshots should perhaps have placeholder no-permission images or replace the whole row with 'no permission' text.

I have moved this thread from bug reports to feedback as this is the designed behaviour.

The thumbnails directory (/data) is not .php protected, but the actual image directory (/internal_data) is.
