    If you set "Can Download Attachments" to No, you're fine. You are probably still seeing the images because they are cached in your browser.

    Simply empty the cache on your browser, and try accessing attachments. You should see an error message.

    If not, something's up..like a hack screwing up your permissions or something

          Can you only see them, or can you really download them?

                It's fine...Your guests can not see attachments. I got a message asking me to register when I accessed one of your downloads.

                However if you want the download link to not appear, you are going to need to modify your template to exclude that usergroup

                  i am at work at a computer i had never accessed the site from before, so i know its not cached and i can see the images without signing in, am i asking the wrong question, i know on someother sites if i had forgotten to sign in it would have a link where the pic would be and if you clicked on it it would pop up the login page, that is what i want mine to do, where do i do this at? thanks again for all the help

                    Are you talking about [img] ? or attachments?

                      Okay, here's the deal. If someone ATTACHES pics to their post, then they can't be seen (I went to your site and tried). However, if the person uses an IMG tag to insert the URL of the pic (from some other server) then it CAN be seen. The vB permissions only work for attached images.

                          Direct IMG tags (to a pic on another server somewhere) have ZERO impact on your bandwidth. Those pics come directly from the source server. Only ATTACHMENTS use your bandwidth. Don't worry about it, you'll be fine...

                            okay the thing is its not the bandwidth i want the people to have to sign up so i will get more members, so if you dont use the img tag what do i use, they are on my server i host the pics myself i guess thats why im confused

                              If you don't use the IMG tag, you need to ATTACH the images to your posts. Simple. Then your permissions will disallow non-members from viewing.
