MOD Title: Attachment Manager
MOD Description: Displays all forum attachments in an overview with the possibility of filtering, sorting and setting permissions.
MOD Version: 0.1.0
MOD Authors: ameeck, christian0012

MOD Download: via SVN repository

I've seen many requests of a complex page, that would show all attachments on the forum.

Here are features that I came up with:
  • Sorting
    • Sort by file type/file type group
    • Sort by filesize
    • Additionaly show only certain filesize/filetype Done!
  • Show attachemnts only from a certain forum or category Done!
  • Search through attachments
  • Delete attachments via overview with permissions to the attachment
  • Rating of attachments(which way? five star rating? scale from 1 to 10?)
  • I sure will come up with more, but feel free to post your suggestions
I'm starting with a basic project that was made for our phpBB support board to show attachements from a single forum(a MODDB), I'll continue posting here with the current progress, as I said, suggestions will be more than welcome.

Yup sounds great ... since you are working on a better attachment management system, do you think you could work on something that would limit the download quota for each IP? for example can't download more tha 5 files in any 24 hour period or have a 50MB limit per day??

A nice addition could be to watermark the images/

A function for easily deleting attachments would be nice, too.

Good luck for this MOD! :)

Thanks for the interest-

ad the download quotas, I'm not sure about partial downloads, I don't see a solution that would be funcitonal server-wide, because a system where you subtract the whole filesize when you click on the attachment doesn't look too good for me..

ad the water marks, well, I guess that would be yet another mod, this is primarily for viewing..

ad deleting: Ok, if the user will have permissions he will see a checkbox to delete the attachemnt, maybe we'll try adding editing them too :geek:

If anyone would be interested in that feature then yes, it could be included :)

The MOD now is in a very pre-alpha stage handling only basic things, if things will go well, we should be RC in a matter of weeks...some features may not be included then, but they sould be added in future versions and revesions

We'll i think we can call it an alpha, it stands, has some of the features and won't tear down the board on execution :)

We'll try to setup a demo to show how it looks in use :)

The ability to associate the file with another post would be really handy.

For example, I attach a file to post A, then I want to delete Post A, but keep the attachment for post B ... instead of having to delete the attachement and re-attach


And is it possible to keep a log of who downloaded what?

Guess we'll have to rename the MOD, now it sounds like an ACP tool(we planned on having more of an overview of the attachments on the board) OR maybe extend it's scope to a ACP panel which could handle some of these feature requests, but I guess that would be in some next release...

I would like to know if the mod is released yet? Because I'm very interested in having this mod for my forum and other forums in the future.
