Is this MOD also supposed to allow normal registered users to see a similar list of attachments or is only meant for the administrator?
Cheers again...
Check the page 'yourrootfolder'/attachment_page.php ;)
Your board visitors can also see the list of attachments (if they are allowed to) and download them from the page.

...one idea - what about to add small icon next to the NAME of the picture (jpg, gif...) attachments, something like preview?
Something like in Avatar_Memberlist MOD http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 9&t=583545 - when you roll mouse over the thumb, it will pop-up in full size :)
Great request. I'll put it on the request list this week ;)

Thanks for your reply... please excuse my ignorance on these matters (I'm a relative newbie here) but I can't get this to work & I don't quite understand what attachment_page.php is doing! Should there be an attachment page on the UCP for registered users where they can see and d/load the attachments they're allowed to?
I don't know if this is the right thing to do but what I've done is create a new catagory/module in the UCP but there's not file from this MOD to call from that module.
Please help!!! :?

Just install the MOD by following the instructions in the install.xml file.
After that, install the ACP module.

Go to the attachment forum manager (this is an ACP-module) and select some forums which contain attachments.

Then browse to http://www.yoursite/attachment_page.php (like the same of your index.php from your board).
Here you will see the attachment page for the visitors of your board. The attachments which are located in the forums you have selected before are available at this page if the visitors have the right permissions (meaning: if they have access to the selected forums). They can use this page as a download page, easily browse to the attachment topic and so on.
You as an adminstrator have control about what attachments are visible at the page using the forum attachment manager.

Hope this will help you ;)

Thanks a lot for your help :D

So if I understand right, Users can't view the attachment page through the UCP or by simply clicking something on the Board index... they have to actually browse to http://www.yoursite/attachment_page.php (ie, the administrator has to let them know of this possibility). Is that so :?:

That's right. No UCP, just put a link somewhere on your site to http://www.yoursite/attachment_page.php ;)

At the first file modification (viewonline.php) should be add before not add after..
this..
FIND (Also should be Correct with tabbed code style)

Code: Select all

        default:
            $location = $user->lang['INDEX'];
            $location_url = append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}index.$phpEx");
        break;
 
ADD AFTER (Should be ADD BEFORE and Also should be Correct with tabbed code style)

Code: Select all

        case 'attachment_page':
            $location = $user->lang['ATTACHMENT_PAGE'];
            $location_url = append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}attachment_page.$phpEx");
        break;
 
sorry, no signature for this month...

So is this one big page of attachments or is it broken down to each category?

At this moment you can only control the attachment forums. Meaning: only from these selected forums the attachments are shown to people who are allowed to see them. So if you've a lot of attachments in one particular forum >> yes, at this moment it becomes a big list of attachments ;)

In future releases I will build in the option to select attachments lists from one particular forum.

Alright, probably wouldn't be wise for me to use this atm then :) I got way too many attachments. But it looks like a nice mod. I had hoped someone would do an expansion towards the attachment feature. What other plans do you have in the future for this?

first. thanks for your good work.

I have 2 ideas for this mod.

1. search for attachment in the "Attachment Page" page.

2. option to select show attachment from 1 forum. add in the bottom of the page menu to select what forum you wont show attachment.

thanks.

Thnx all for the comments. It's been a while since my last post here. But that doesn't mean there is no progress. Actually, I'm very busy with this MOD. So take notice of this update.

The basic thinking of the MOD stays. You will use the normal attachments function of phpBB to fill the download page. At this moment it's just a big list of all attachments. In the next version you can control a lot more.
I've added attachment categories, which can be used as download categories.
You can assign forums to the categories. Attachments from those forums will be located at the particular category.

This, with more features which will be included, gives a very effective and simple download manager.

I'm now at the phase of finalizing the ACP-modules. After that I need to adjust the download page and then I'm done for the next release.

I will keep you informed by posting some screens soon.

My ambitions with the attachment page MOD has rised. It becomes more and more a download centre. To inform you all about the progress and how it looks like at this moment, another information update.

The MOD works with download categories. You can manage them at your ACP by using the modules.
You can define:
- category name
- category description
- category order
- category image
Also you can define the forums which you want to relate with the category. All attachments from that forum (or those forums, because you can select multiple forums) will be displayed at the download category.

The MOD shows in your ACP the attachments which are related to the category. You get info about:
- attachment name
- attachment description
- attachment topic (direct link to it)
- date posted and poster of attachments
- filesize

The MOD provides also the option to edit the attachments information. You can edit:
- the attachment name
- the attachment description

To get some clue what I'm talking about, I've added some screens. I hope to release a test version soon.
