New registered members cannot even view files or attachments?

#1 Post by fixYourPermissions »

I just got my braces off today and I wanted to look at other people's retainers, lo and behold I can't view any attached images because "You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post."
So then I made an account. I still get the error message "You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post."

It'd be nice if guests and new users could view images. Full facial images are already banned so I'm not sure what would be the problem with allowing guests and new users to view images. Some of us just like to lurk and learn.

When you make enough posts and your user name turns green you will have full privileges. Until then, the restrictions will stand. Sorry about that, but it's meant to keep things on this board more private and to stop spammers.
I'm the owner/admin of this site. Had ceramic uppers, metal lowers ~3 years in my early 40's. Now in Hawley retainers at night!
