    Hello,
    I just uploaded few files for the visitors of the site.
    But it seems that only admin can access them.
    When a norma visitor tries to access my process engg. related files they get following message:
    "Sorry, no posts matched your criteria."

    I've not made any major changes in configuration settings as such.
    I tried to look whether there's permission or access configuration options available, but it's not there... or is it there but I missed it?

    Did you put the files you want accessible to the public in the public html folder?

    How did you code the link to the files?

    I changed uploads folder location from "/wp-content/uploads/" to simply "/uploads"

    The files can be downloaded if you type domain.com/uploads/ but thats not the proper way. it should show 'post theme' of wp.

    Your links are incorrect.

    http://processsafetyservices.co.uk/uploads/how-critical-are-bypass-lines.pdf is a good link from your publications page.

    Actually I had to 'insert the media files' instead I typed url. & it worked. I shouldn't have been that way. but thats the way it is, you have to insert a media file and then you'll get option of posting 'link file' or 'link post' If you select former file will start downloading directly. & for the latter you'll see file description page.

    Problem is resolved.
