How do I allow registered users to upload media to questions/answers? The user has the capability ‘upload_files’ and yet I keep getting a message ‘You don’t have permission to attach files to this post.’

I have checked on our demo and it still works fine. Also, the Q&A does not the permission option to allow user attach files to the post. Firstly, please deactivate all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one and let us know if you find the problematic plugin(s). Maybe there is a conflict in plugins.

If you still face there issue, you can send me username & password of your site for further checking (via private answer).

I got it, thanks. I thought DWQA allowed images to be attached to q&a, was this recently removed? My hacked version does now, the problem with permission i was having was with the post type capability type, which was mapped to post therefore not allowing user uploads when checked for permissions.

THanks for your help Dominic! I appreciate it.
