Hello, I'd like attachments to stop being publicly available.  Can I put an htaccess file or apply some other setting to make sure the attachments can only be accessible from forum posts?  Right now, the URLs to these attachments can be loaded from anywhere.  Spammers are taking advantage of this.  Thanks!

Hi @glowball,

wpForo AA Addon has "Secure Attachment URLs" option, you can also disallow not logged-in users to see the attachments, You can do it by disabling "Can view attached files" option in Forum Accesses
