  • File attachments (and disabling)

    When a user attaches a file does it get uploaded into my site?

    If I do not want users to be able to attach files, how do I disable this feature?

    Go to your control panel, then click modify in user groups and permissions. Click on edit by e.g. registered. Set Can post attachments on NO

    That's it

          Is it possible to attach files but don't upload them to the database...? I mean the user has got to give the URL for the attachment...

              Yes, providing you've enablied vb Codes. They just need to post it as:

              [ url ] http://site/file [ /url ]

              ...without the spaces of course.
