Default Show attachment module only to article poster and select usergroups?

The attachment column shouldn't be needed by regular members as long as they can still see the attachments used throughout the articles. Atleast this is the way it is for me.

So is there a way I can set it up so that only say admins and the original author can see the attachment module? Takes up way to much space and really isnt required for regular members

Or better yet how can we make it a pop up menu link?

Cause some of my articles have over 50 images.

And there is now way in hell that would work

Is it possible to make a link to "View all attachments" instead of showing them all period?

Cause even if only thread creator and admins can see them thats still 50+ pictures....

hmmm. Not too sure on that. It would require another php page at least. Most likely not for next release - maybe for an add on or something?

An addon would be good as long as I am able to do the link thing.

For example... this article just has 20 images and look how much space it takes up

Sorry for my ignorance but how do you exactly put them in-line? I don't see that anywhere...

I need for the users that submit articles to see their attachments as well so that they can add them etc.

its a vb3.5.1 feature.

When you attach the pics they then appear in a drop down menu next to the smilie drop down menu. From there you can pop them into your message.

My personal preferred method though is to use vbagallery (or PP) to store the images and then use my Geek Gallery Popup over at .org to insert the images.

Just a couple of options for you.
