Some pics do not load

Post by glossieblack » Tue Jul 04, 2017 5:28 am

When I open threads on this forum, I can usually see the pictures without being logged on. But sometimes I get a message along the lines that I'm denied access to the pics. I've found that I then log on, I get access. Are others experiencing this?

Make sure that you select "Remember Me" or something to that effect. It is easy to miss at times. I only get that setting at work while I am on breaks or lunch... :wink:

The missing pics are done as "attachments" instead of loaded fro the gallery. Jamie commented on this on a different thread ...

Is there not a dang setting that will allow a visitor to view an attachment???
It seems kind of counter productive for a website to deny access of attachments (photos) to visitors.
The unseen photo of a swift canoe with a 90 hp jet might be a game breaker for a potential builder :D

To test if this is the explanation, Jaysen and Richard, I can see most of your pics without being logged on.

But Jaysen I couldn't see the pics you posted on 24 June, and I Richard I couldn't see the recent pic of your daughter and son.

Those pics (24June) were attached direct. I was in a rush and didn't use the longer upload process need for the gallery.

Jamie should be the final word on this. He may have a solution to allow unauthenticated views of attachments.

I dont know what I am talking about. :P
Did a google search and found some info that may help,

https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=1190535

If you use phpbb3's Attachment feature, you can set the Guest's Group's Forum permission to NO for Can download files under the Content tab in Advanced permissions. Then they can't see it.

Otherwise, there is no way to keep a linked or hotlinked image from being downloaded or viewed.
They are discussing preventing guest users from viewing, so I would assume that reversing that process would allow guests to view attachments.

Sorry it took a while, found the correct permissions setting. This issue is fixed, you can now also search the board when not logged in.
