[DEV] Attach Mod

Post by digioz » Tue Nov 15, 2011 8:48 pm

Modification Name: Attach Mod
Author: digioz

Modification Description: The purpose of this mod is to store attachments at YYYY/Month/DD inside the files folder where attachments are normally stored. This is specially beneficial for sites with a large number of attachments to distribute the number of files into multiple folders for faster retrieval and more efficient storage.

Modification Version: 0.0.3
Requirements: None
Supported PHPBB Versions: 3.0.9, 3.0.10

Download: attach-mod_0.0.3.zip
Source Code: DigiOz Github phpbb-mods

Screenshots:

Credits: Special thanks to John Z for the initial creation of this Mod, and for allowing me to further enhance this mod and make it available to the community.

Notes: This ModX Installer does not move your existing attachments for you. You will have to manually place existing attachments into proper folder by Year, Month and Day. Any new attachments made after this mod is installed will be stored in YYYY/MM/DD format going forward.

History:
  • 11/15/2011 - Version 0.0.2 released supporting phpBB 3.0.4
  • 11/22/2011 - Version 0.0.3 released which now supports phpBB 3.0.9
  • 08/23/2015 - Version 0.0.4 released which now supports phpBB 3.1.5 (note - this version requires a manual edit of the files and is NOT an extension)
Thanks,
Pete

Hey Franck,

I didn't include a search feature in this mod, but you could easily create a Mod for searching topics by date or attachments posted in a specific date by modifying the out of box advanced search page to look at the filetime.

It will be a great MOD. Thanks Digioz.
I tested out I-FR70's MOD on my board. It worked but all of my avatars were not displayed.
Somehow links of avatars were corrupted. I am waiting for your MOD. TIA

Hi digioz!

I have question about modification of a standard attachment function. Do you know how to do this with mod: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2145151?

Thanks!

Attachments are stored inside the "files" folder, not the "images" folder as you are asking in your question. Also PHPBB does not care about the URL when it uploads the file, it only cares about the relative File System Path.

Does that answer your question?

Yes, thank you very much.

But I also would like to know how and where to change the relative File System Path for attachments. If it is possible, please answer. Thank you again.

You can change the storage folder for Attachments by logging into the Administrative Control Panel. Under "General" tab, there is a link called "Attachment settings". Click on that link, and it will take you to a form where you see the option called "upload directory". By default the upload directory is set to "files" folder, but you can change this directory to whatever directory you want to use instead.

nice mod idea but after installing all files now show this error

The file ./../files/2011/December/1/405_18d8e01c0635da387cdedaeb63820962 does not exist.

but the files are still in the files folder

did a file test AFTER installing this mod and it worked but only for new files

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_CODE_UNTIDY and S_MESS_ON_INDEX Good If_Not_TIDY_Then_SUBMIT -->

As the note on the first post says, this Mod doesn't move your existing files for you. You have to move those manually based on filetime in phpbb_attachments table. We will eventually create a converter for this, as time permits.

Hello All,

I have verified this Mod for phpbb version 3.0.10 in addition to version 3.0.9, so feel free to use it with either of those two versions.

Thanks,
