Members in this forum report that they are unable to upload attachments
I just tested on the totally cool forum, and I was able to upload attachments under both my own account and under test student

It was an issue with document size. I was using the default size limits, which were relatively small. I have changed the error status in the database so that the item is no longer listed as too large. It now appears in the proper place in the forum post.
I also increased the file size limits to something reasonable.
I will file a separate feature request ticket for proper user error reporting.

After a few back-and-forths with the user, I was able to locate the problem. There were a few places in the Forum Attachment plugin where it was verifying certain credentials in order to determine whether to show the attachment upload form. The code was bbPress specific (as the plugin was ported from bbPress), and wasn't causing problems for the majority of users, but for some reason was returning false for a few. I have removed that code and the user reports that she is now able to see the upload form normally.
