There're no major errors in the MOD.
stokerpiller is right, there was intended to update attachments by their posters only, but not as some moderator/administrator option.

And yes, I'll think about the issue for administrators to be able to update any attachments, thanks :)

Ahhh.. I think I understand.

Are you saying this MOD was made for user's to update the attachments and not for the MODS to do it for them?

Very good MOD.
If you do not like user attachment, DELETE IT :mrgreen:
Excellent MOD, but with Admin right to update users attachments it will be superb :D

Why would an admin / mod need to update a user's attachment instead of just deleting it?
I also think admins can already edit a post to delete / import their own attachment already.
This MOD with admin privileges would take out one step, but I can't think of any scenarios
where someone would replace the attachment instead of just deleting it.
Overall good idea for a MOD, thanks!

Is it possible to take this mod a step further and allow the mod or admin to link to a file that has been uploaded ftp. This would help with slow net connections as far as uploading larger files.

OT Question - Is it possible to turn off attachment names being incrypted? Making it easier to find the attachment in the upload directory. I have looked but cannot find the answer. :o

In the case of my forum enabling the moderators or admins to edit attachment would be very handy. I have 3d product beta testing going on all the time. And sometimes it is easier for and admin or moderator to update the file rather than the poster.

Hopefully this feature will be added. Great mod.

Thanks

I agree with you mara7, it should be. Also an option to not encrypt the name of the files, that makes a conveluted mess in the folder.

Or is there an option that I have missed not to encrypt the files?

On my board I have alot of transiant users, they come and go over the years. But some stuff they post gets updated regularly. It's true, I could erase there files and repost it, but then as admin I get the ID added and the original poster can no longer update. Which kinda sucks, because it takes the pride away from the original poster. I really thing adding admin update options would be very helpful on so many levels.

If I could beseach you to add this feature, or if someone could help me update the code on my board, I would be most humbly greatful.

BTW - post #1 says install time is less then 5 minutes but the install file in archive says less then 6. ;)

This mod will help a lot; however it would be even better if we can link an attachment that is already linked to one message to others instead of having to upload the same file over and over. We have many users that want to download the same file but we do not wnat to post the file openly for anyone to download on their own. Is there a way we can upload an attachment and then repeatedly attach it to multiple messages without uploading the same file over and over again?

If there is, your mod would be an incredible aid; in that, when the file we use repeatedly needs an update we can just update it.

Any ideas?

Just copy the posted download link and paste it in the other posts with an image of the download icon.

So you can update attachments in private messages

Open: includes/ucp/ucp_pm_compose.php

Find:

Code: Select all

$refresh    = isset($_POST['add_file']) || isset($_POST['delete_file']) || $save || $load
In-line Find:

Code: Select all

isset($_POST['add_file']) 
After Add:

Code: Select all

|| isset($_POST['update_file']) 
Image

Locked
