Display attachments side-by-side?

Post by David Sims » Thu Jun 03, 2010 8:08 am

When I upload attachments within any post on my board, it displays them one above the other and takes up a great deal of space. I noticed that there was a 'Place Inline' button once I had uploaded my attachment. Having clicked that button all it appears to do is to delete the white 'Attachment' border around the image.

Is there any way I can display multiple attachments side-by-side within a post, in the interests of space-saving if nothing else?

Many thanks.
David

Each attachment is in it's own dl class, helping ensure XHTML compatibility. Quickly glancing at the code, I don't see an easy way of achieving this and maintaining XHTML compatibility. This would definitely require a MOD of some type.

When you say "attachments", do you just mean images?

Thanks Tabitha.

Yes ric323, I mean images but uploaded at the base of a new post by using the 'Upload Attachment' tab that you can see just below the 'Save, Preview & Submit' buttons when typing out a new post.

Maybe it isn't possible to have them displayed side-by-side?
