I have been doing a lot of work to my forum lately in the way of setting up different user groups with different permissions. One of the permissions I'd like to give to the trusted user groups is the ability to upload more attachments per post than the untrusted user groups would be able to. For some reason though, I am unable to located the permissions setting to do this. Does anyone know where it is?

Nope. It doesn't exist. I've seen quite a few posts in the XenForo community itself asking for this feature, but from what I gather, the only way to determine how many attachments a member can upload is by changing the global setting in Setup > Options > Attachments. From there, you'd want to edit the Maximum Attachments Per Message Setting. Place the number of attachments you'd like to allow every member to upload or use 0 for unlimited. But again, as I said, this is a global setting, meaning you can't differentiate the number of attachments a member is able to upload by user group. I agree though, it seems like this would be a standard setting inside of the XenForo admin panel. It would be so nice if it was.

Here are a few posts in the XenForo community that discuss the issue:

As far as I know right now, there's an add-on created by OzzModz that controls how large an attachment can be in KBs per user group.

But that doesn't really deal with what we're talking about here.
