    Moderation of Attachments (Not working correctly?)


    I have my forums setup to moderate all posts, threads, and attachments.

    I validated the posts but not the attachments. When I went into the forums as a regular user, the posts were there but the attachments were there too.

    What I was seeing is the attachment showing up "inline" instead of as a thumbnail, and it said Attachments penting approval and the size of the file.

    Also When I click on the attachment link I am able to view the attachment!

    If its pending approval, why would I be able to see the like for the attachment to begin with and why is it letting me view the attachment?

    I dont get it.... Do I possibly have something setup wrong in the admin cp?

    If anyone can help me with this or possibly point me in the right direction your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks much

    You can view the attachment if you have permission to moderate it or the attachment belongs to you.

      Ah maybe thats what the problem is then. Ill have to try logging in as a different user.

      Ill get back to you on this once I have had a chance to test this.

      Thanks Freddie,
