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

    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.

    Do you have it stored as one of your attachments in the database?
    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.

    Thank you for the approval. . The bad news is that I was unable to see the image as a registered user. Do you have it stored as one of your attachments in the database?

    You must do it for each section that is defined within the CMS. The Sections are displayed at the bottom of the CMS Permissions page.

    Also, as a FYI, I registered at your sight. I am halfway there, awaiting my email confirmation. As a user awaiting confirmation, I have the same issue and cannot see the images within the CMS articles.

    It is under CMS permissions, not attachments. I can uncheck the box to download CMS attachments and break the display for the unregistered (or any other group) every time. Sorry.....

    I was able to duplicate this on our forum. Neither linked nor attached images were showing in the CMS articles for Unregistered / Not Logged In until I checked the Can Download Attachments box. Now both types of images are showing for Unregistered / Not Logged In group.
    I have that box checked and still not viewable.
