If I (admin) paste the url of a picture, it shows in the forum. Members do not have this ability. I can't figure out why.

I do have the advanced attachments add-ons.  Where is the setting(s) to make this work?

 

Thank you!

Thank you!  I really appreciate the responsiveness of the team and will be leaving you a great review once I have a full count of how many questions you have patiently answered.  But here's some feedback: your recaptcha is set way too high. I have to run through 5 to 10 and sometimes even 12 screens. It's so tedious, I want to walk away but good manner demand, I endure it in order to thank you for helping me!

Thank you @eel,

Let's not say "your recaptcha", there is not our or others reCAPTCHA. It's only belongs to Google and it's loaded from Google Server to your forum. Google decides how many questions should ask you. And this is individual, it based on your browser, IP address, your behavior, etc... wpForo and nobody else cannot affect reCAPTCHA behavior, there is not any configuration or option to say reCAPYCHA don't ask questions or ask it less.

In other words, the reCAPTCHA is totally standalone system, and it works different for each visitor, so if I go to your website, in 99% it'll not ask even one image question, so it has some problem especially with your browser and IP Address if it asks many questions. Again, wpForo has not any relations to  reCAPTCHA working functions and the way it works for you is not general, it only works that way for you.

@robert Thanks. It took me seven screens to be able to answer you. About 90 seconds... seems an eternity.

I do not doubt what you are saying outside of the fact that the recaptcha I use on my site allows me to set the difficulty level as shown.

I want the lowest effective barrier for the user because it really is a deterrent. I am super happy with your plugin. I just thought you might want to know this.  Thanks!

Just don't worry, most of the users just click the checkbox and go on, this multi-question behavior is very rare case.
