"Unknown Attachment" displaying for Anonymous users instead of image

Hi, I've enabled Anon access, and selected "view user profiles". However, when selecting some pages as a Anon user, I cannot see the attachements/links. In others I can. I have a one space where the results are mixed, I can see attachement/Links images on some pages, others I cannot.

Some attachements are .PNG others .GIF

Any ideas?

Hi Phil,

I believe some of the attachment is attached to pages which are restrict annoymous user.

For example, attachment A is attached in page 1 and page 1 is restricted. In page 2, there is a attachment link which refer to the attachment A in page 1. When a user who does not have view permission in page 1 view the attachment in page 2, the attachment will not render.

Thanks. I thought I had checked the page restrictions, obviously not. All sorted now.
