      Yes, precisely. Formerly I would insert images with my editor but that button disappeared. Maybe that's what I need to fix, i.e., my editor. Thank you.

        This is an image in a CMS article. The permissions for this are in admincp > vBulletin CMS > Permissions. You must click to view the permissions for that section.... if they inherit permissions from an 'above' section, you must go look at the permissions for that section. Now see if the usergroups may view attachments for that section.

        If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

          I don't like the fact that I have to give unregistered users permission to download attachments, in order to see my article images. "Seeing" an article's image is not equivalent to "downloading." This differentiation is a very basic CMS function that is built into the vast majority of the CMS publishing systems on the market. And to have such a rule inherent to a CMS, OOTB, isn't rocket science.

            Any image you view in a browser is downloadable with the click of a button. So "seeing" is equivalent to "downloading" in this case.
