Solved Must be registered/logged in to see Image/Link

Technical Details

When the problem appeared : Today

Description of problem

I noticed that images and links no longer display on my forum unless the person is registered and logged in to their account. We never had this setting before and it seems to have activated itself after the ACP Appearance update.
I did some googling and found a topic that said the permissions need to be changed (General > Forum > Forums and Categories > Permissions) but I can't find the permission option for Images/Links.. ><

HI there, I could be wrong about this one, but it sounds like the external links.

Admin Panel --> General --> Forum --> Security --> Disable external links to guests in messages : yes or no

Hi @Draxion,

So I gave that a try and we have "no" ticked off for that option:


I even tried changing it to yes, saving it, and then changing it back to no and saving it but that didn't work either x_x

I'm in advanced xD
I never saw an option for links in the forum permissions tab before so wasn't expecting to find it there after the update ;c

@SLGray do you think the ACP update could have changed some settings? We never had this issue before up until today and we didn't change any of the settings in weeks iram ot months.

Edit; Nvm! Skouliki's method worked xD I had to specifically click on the forum name to get the images and links to show.

This is solved now~ Thank you Skouliki ❤
