Hi,

I tried it with A Hot Day in Velez Málaga which is in General, clicked on 'Reply' and Attachments was there right next to options.

Hi Beachcomber,

Will need other Members to checkout if Attachments Tab is available on the General Section as you and El Cid will have elevated privileges due to being chosen men (Site Mods )

I just want to be sure we are on the same wavelength.

I selected a topic from the 'General' section. I clicked on 'Post reply' to your last post which can be seen at the bottom of the screenshot and got this screen which shows the 'Attachments' tab.

I've just checked and the attachments tab is not there in the General section, the same as Gerry's screenshot.

Hi Beachcomber,

"Am I missing something?"........... NO ......... but we are , the access rights to the General Section to Post Attachments.

To Quote from my Post a few back.............

"It's a permission problem. You haven't given the "registered users" group permission to upload attachments to those forum.

Admin control panel -> permissions tab -> forum based permissions -> forum permissions


Select the forum or forums in question and then then submit, on the next screen you need to select the registered users group and click to add or edit permissions (probably edit) and then on the right click the advanced permissions link in turn for each forum you wish to set permissions for and then then you should get tabs for setting various permissions types. Click the content tab and make sure that the permissions to attach files is set to yes, if it is not then set it to yes and submit the permissions change "

:D

Neither Sid nor I have access to the the Administrator Control Panel. We have a Moderator Control Panel which has far fewer facilities which do not include the possibility of changing or granting permissions as described in your link.

I have reported the matter to Admin so hopefully it will be resolved at some stage.

Admin has replied to the effect that Attachments have overall permission and is not granted on a section by section basis. However, it has made some adjustments and is asking if there is any change in the situation.

As I only have one user account I cannot check whether or not the tab is now there for regular members. Could someone please do so.

By the way, is this something that has just come to light or has this been the case since the forum upgrade or even before?

Hi,
"By the way, is this something that has just come to light or has this been the case since the forum upgrade or even before?"

Difficult to say on this one as it only came to light when our Right Honourable Member AkoAko tried to "Attach" on the recent Cajamar Thread.

Thanks Beachcomber and Admin for a quick fix...........IT Support as it should be.
