Hi everyone,

I'm currently using JForum version 2.1.5 (latest in CVS). I want to disable attachment uploading across the board for all users and all forums. In essence, I don't want the "Attach Files" button to ever appear. Is there a way to do this without changing code? I've been playing around in the admin control panel and can't seem to get it to work. the button is always there. I also don't see any config file settings. In the permissions settings for groups, it seems to allow you to select a subset of forums to enable attachments on, but not disable them for all. Am I missing something here?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Admin Panel -> Groups -> Permissions -> Attachments -> Select all boards you don't want to allow attachments
