Re: Admin: Photo Attachments!

Phil Rickard <chy_gwel_an_meneth@...>

Thanks Frank,

So if one did have a photo for discussion etc., one could post it in
the Photos section and separately post a message that it was there to
be looked at but that all comment/discussion is to be on the Message

Sounds a safer way to go - the last thing I need is any sort of virus!

cheers Phil

Yes there are two methods, attaching to emails - which is generally
considered a risk, and uploading to the files section in Yahoo
which is generally considered to be safe.

Being a total novice to any sort of online group, can I just re-cap
here? Are there two ways of putting photos on the group site?

One in the Photos tab and one by attaching them to a posting?

If the attachment option is a security risk, can I take it that the
Photo section is safe/safer?

thanks Phil

I don't think attachments should be allowed to emails to this

I think there is a security risk with this relating to viruses

Most groups I belong to don't allow it, and I am reluctant to
that do.

Morning all,
Just wanting members views on whether or
not photographic attachments should be accepted on
group posts or whether it be limited to the
files/photos sections?
We are able to permit them so photos can be posted
occasionally for discussion.
Otherwise they can be placed into the other sections
where members who actually have a Yahoo account can
view them.

Interested in your thoughts. THe group is currently
set up with the default setting of allowing them.
