Hmm...

 

when not logged in ( browsing as public) I get this odd thing - any MIGRATED forum posts with attachment show a link "download attachment". But when clicked on they redirect to error page

 

Error: 0 - JERROR_ALERTNOAUTHOR

 

the url of the link is /[forum]/[post]# ( same as working post url but with a # symbol tacked on to the valid link)

... and the URL of the resulting redirect is actually showing as correct URL for the forum ( /[forum]

 

when logged in as a "Free" user ( who by default do not have permission to view attachments) - the "download attachment" link (typically an attached image file) is visible, but when clicked on, downloads OK   

when logged in as a "Paid" user ( who by default have permission to view attachments) - the "download attachment" link (typically an attached image file) is visible, and when clicked on, downloads OK  

 

HOWEVER, this strikes me as something of a Migration error, since in the original posting, the image was not only an attached file, but was inserted as to be viewed INLINE in the post (something this forum doesnt do, I guess?)

 

Ideally, we want all those image attachments to behave at least as well as the native ones do here - that is a thumbnail visible under the post - which opens up in a modal when clicked on... Instead, they are just giving downloads to those who have permission {Is this a bug?}, and the public user gets the error {definitely must be a bug!}
