Attachment Unavailable

You're probably here because an admin commented DWD.is/error on your post. That means that even though you can see your attachment, most people can't. Instead, they see "Attachment Unavailable."

We want all members to see your posts, so please fix it right away. Don't worry. It's easy.

Why this happens

The default privacy setting for personal pages is Friends Only. When you share a post to DWD that you originally posted to your personal page (as opposed to posting to DWD directly), the Friends Only privacy setting remains with the attachment. The result is that only you and your friends in the group can see what you are trying to share, while everyone else sees the Attachment Unavailable error message instead. 

How to fix

You don't have to delete your post. Assuming the original attachment is yours, just go back to your personal page and find the original attachment. Edit its Privacy setting and change it to Public. Your shared post will update automatically. If the attachment is not yours, then ask the owner to do the same. If you're unable to get ahold of the content owner, then please delete the shared post and post the content directly instead.

Tip

It's easy to quickly determine the a post’s privacy setting. Just look at the little icon at the top. A globe means Public. Two people means Friends Only. Two people in a box means posted directly to the Group.
