Image Searches on phpbb forum

Post by trandoductin » Fri Oct 06, 2017 5:06 pm

Searched for ability to search through image attachment real filenames and could not find anything.
So I added my own custom pages to such a thing.
The code is no where perfect, but i am just glad it works.

You can try it here: https://www.gimplearn.net/isearch.php
You can view searches that had been performed on my forum here: https://www.gimplearn.net/isearches.php

If you'd like to implement something similar on your phpbb forum: https://www.gimplearn.net/viewtopic.php ... 648#p10648

My members like to have descriptive words for their filenames (the files that they upload) so it's a nice feature to have I think.

I think it's a great feature for forums that get a lot of image attachments.

Why don't you make it as an extension?

I looked at the documentation once and it scared me so I don't know how to make it extension. :lol:

If someone takes my code and changes it and make an extension out of it, I'd love to try out the extension.

Make an extension request adding whatever information (code) you think necessary.
