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
Supported PHPBB Versions: 3.0.9, 3.0.10
Source Code: DigiOz Github phpbb-mods
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.
