  • guests/non logged-in members can't view images, only text post/threads

    Hi all.

    This is what guests and non-logged in members see in the place of an image. This is a new problem, it only started maybe a week or two ago. Before that guests/non logged-in members could see images fine, but now only text posts/threads can be viewed.

    The only thing that may have caused this was at around the same time, I set the permission of one subforum so that threads can only be viewed by logged-in members. So why does changing permissions of one subforum make images unviewable on the entire site by guests/non logged-in members? Is there a way to fix this problem? Maybe in the settings somewhere?

    Thanks in advance.

    Your Guest Usergroup has these permissions "Can Download Image Attachments", "Can Download Non-Image Attachments", and "Can View Image Thumbnails" all set to No. This will prevent them from viewing images, even in Photo Galleries. There was previously a bug with these permissions that did not apply them to Photo Galleries. That bug was fixed in 5.6.4.

    You can change permissions under Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager. Any custom channel permissions would have to be adjusted under Usergroups -> Channel Permissions.

      Hi Wayne, thanks for your reply.

      I had change the channel permissions via: AdminCP -> Channel Management -> Channel Permissions -> (Find correct channel) -> Guest Users -> "Can View Channels" -> No. I didn't know it had to be done via Usergroups.

      All fixed now.

        Can View Channel doesn't override the more specific permissions listed in my post above.
