Btw.: It would be nice if there is a possibility for deleting / editing and moving / renaming the attachments ;)

Today I've started with setting up the MOD file structure.
Requests for this MOD development are welcome.

For a full list of requests, take a look here: Overview requests Attachment Page MOD

The second post of this topic contains the Modification Roadmap. You can use it to follow the development.

Today I've set up the basic Attachment Page. This page gives an overview of all attachments at your board containing the following information:
- name attachment
- poster of attachment (in their user color wit a link to the profile)
- a link to the topic in which the attachment has been posted
- date of the attachment post
- how many downloads the attachment has
- how big the file size is
- instant download link

This all looks like this.

Development of this MOD will go on. Requests are still welcome.

I've set up two live demos of the MOD @ IDLaunch:
- one poster

Futhermore I've adopted a request by Pietje @ phpbb.nl: select forums to show attachments.

Just a suggestion, maybe, to download an attachment, just make the file name clickable (a link). By doing so, you can remove the "download" column in the table, and this maybe gives some extra free space so that the "View topic" link can be replaced with a clickable full topic name? :)
This would obviously result in an extra query, but otherwise would give a better overview in my opinion :)
I only provide support via the appropriate topics! Please no PM or mails! :)

The extra query isn't a problem ;)
Your suggestion inspired me to change the layout a little bit more 8-)

I've added the attachment description below the attachment name.
The poster column is gone and this is added below the date on which the attachment has been posted.

Thnx m8 8-)

Update
To avoid a long list of attachments @ the attachments page, I've added a pagination. At the demo pages it's set up to 5 attachments per page.

The other problem that was giving me a headache, was to hide the attachments from groups who aren't allowed to see them (attachments posted in hidden forums). With the help of ToonArmy I've solved this issue.
As you can see at the demo pages you as a guest do not see the total amount of attachments (count the attachments and take a look at the total attachment stat ;) )
Register, login and take a look again --> there he is

Futhermore I've added some stats to the page.

Again a screenshot to fulfill the hungry eyes ;)

Some good developments here, nice! :)

Just a question on that attachment count, what is the use of not showing the exact amount of attachments to guests? I don't really see that yet :) It doesn't bother me though, just sounds funny. :P

I'm just a funny guy :lol:

It is interesting if you want to show your guests or people who aren't a member of some special group, what they miss | don't have access to.

But I have to admit, it can be done much nicer. I'm thinking about this:
- total attachments you have access to: xxx
- total attachments you don't have access to: xxx

Today I've completed the attachment page stats. It shows:
- amount of attachments you have access to
- total filesize
- attachment per day

The first one can change obviously. That depends if you have hidden forums (and hidden attachments) for certain groups.

Again I've added a screenshot:

Next stage of development is concentrating on the request made by lugsciath:
2009-10-21: delete/edit/move/rename attachments | request by lugsciath @ phpBB.com | view request

Today I've added the attachment forum manager. This acp-module gives you the opportunity to select forums. Only the attachments of topics from the selected forums will be shown at the attachment page. And you only can see the attachments if you have the permissions to see the forum (as stated before in the above posts).
With this feature you have even more control over your attachment page.

The module looks like this:

The next step is developing an ACP-module for deleting attachments and editing the attachment information like name and description.
