Attachment Permission of Guests

Post by wbxpress »

I want to make the attached files visible to Guests, but Guests can not download the file unless they Login. Is it possible?

As far as I'm aware this isn't possible with vanilla phpBB so you would would need a MOD for that.

The best place to look/search/MOD request would be in the MODs forums.

This is not possible. Once a user can view an image, that means his browser has already downloaded it to his computer. There are also screenshots. Any image that can be seen on a website can be saved to a user's hard drive, one way or another.
