Unable to view attachments
« on: November 12, 2018, 01:45:11 PM »
I've tried including attachments, but keep seeing the notice that I'm not allowed to view them. There should be an explanation on this forum somewhere not so difficult to find; e.g., you don't have sufficient permissions to view attachments until something happens; or whatever.

Hello Randy,

Nothing special, just some png files. But when trying to Preview the post, the message is displayed:

It's a known issue that you won't be able to view inline attachments while in PREVIEW.  They show fine after the post is done.

Attachments (inline) are also only viewable by logged-in users (not Guests).

Hope this helps...
