can I propose a revised layout similar to the one mentioned in this post (http://rastforum.com/index.php?topic=173.0) as I believe that it may add further value to the forum.

If Alexander needs any graphics for the landing page etc. I am more than willing to help in this respect.

Ok Dave I look forward to discuss potential improvements to the forum at the Pattaya meeting  :)

Meanwhile -as said in the other post- the forum sources and packages have been upgraded to 1.1.6 which fixes a number of bugs and security issues.
I am curious to hear if this solved the "visible/invisible" uploaded picture problem.

Hi Alexander,
    Swen was one of the users who reported not being able to see any attachments, perhaps he could test and report back here. Thanks for the update of the forum, see you in November.

I can confirm that attachments do not show up to Guest users, neither my mother (in the UK) or myself (using firefox and not logged in) can see the attachments.

Can I suggest that it is a permissions problem maybe ?? do you have to explicitly grant 'view attachments' rights to non-authenticated users ?? I'm not sure though why Swen can't see them but Paul and Nathan can !!!

I am using Windows XP and Firefox as Browser and don`t have any problems with the pictures. Same with Explorer or the new Google Chrome Browser.  :D ;D

Well first we thought it's only a problem of the Global Moderator accounts but Dave distroied our theory because his family members in UK also can not see the pic's .... anyway I think we will fix all problems with the software to fullfill all your needs!!! ;-)

System:
XP

Brower:
IE and Firefox 3 aren't able to display the pic's on my side ...
