Allowing Guests/Members to see links?

Post by Win4fun44 on September 1st 2012, 4:52 pm

Hey, on my forum I embedded links like this, however whenever a non-administrator looks at the link it says "[Only admins are allowed to see this link]". I looked through all of the advanced permissions for users but I couldn't find a way of allowing everyone to see these embedded links.

Thanks for the help Smile

Hi this can be fixed by doing the following steps

ACP>>
General tab >>

Forum >> Categories and forums find the forum's and click on the little cog >> go to Permissions tab >>
1, See images in the messages :
Members Or All
2, See links in the messages : Members or All

And save

Do this to all your forums and then save them and this should fix your problem.

Your Friendly Helper Ape

Links still not working when not logged in

I'm constructing a forum and am having the same problem. I've change permissions to All for every one of our forums, but non-logged in viewers still can't see the links (they come out as plain text).

Hello guys.

It seems that we have the same problem with our forum...

I've made some print screens:

1. Browse as a guest


2. Browse as a member


3. Browse as an administrator


4. Forum's options


Thanks in advance for solving this problem!

Best Regards,
George

Try changing it to Members? Also, do this for every single forum.

If I select Members, won't Guests then be unable to see the links? I'd like everyone to see them, whether they're a member or not.

Something weird happend... Shocked

I've changed to "Members" and it worked (I mean that now members could see the links and images), then I've changed back to "All" and it worked even for guests!

I tried the same: images are fine, but links are still no-go.

Any other suggestions?

Sorry, of course. Check this out:

problem page

The last post's last sentence is "I can now post links!" and the word links is a link, but isn't showing to guests.
