attachment alternative - multi upload (flash)

Post by wesleyuk »

Hi guys

my forum contains 10,000+ pictures, the problem is it's taking loooonnnngggg time to upload them as attachment!

I've found a really nice flash uploader http://digitarald.de/project/fancyupload/ it's free and there is a demo so you can try it. Highlight 10 or more pictures then click upload!! simple!! Perfect for any forums with multi pictures (attachment)

It'd would be FANTASTIC if anyone make this as a MOD, embedded it into phpbb3 forum (under the postbox) and automatically enter the bbcodes of clickable thumbnails to open full sized window into the postbox. Also it would be better if the bbcodes/thumbnails from left to right:

example:

(attachment 1), (attachment 2)................(attachment 10) etc

not like this:

(attachment1)
(attachment2)
.
.
.
.
(attachment 10)
etc

as the threads will be a mile long down lol

What do you guys think?

thanks :)

Yeah, that's a great idea. I just wanted to request that mod too!
I already tried it myself but I saw, that it will need some intense php-coding.
I'll have some spare time the next couple of days. I'll let you know if I came to a solution!

I'm close!

Problem is: the cookies (_sid, _u, _k) are not submitted correctly. I added a new form, that submits to the same address like the posting form.
I'm thinking of adding the needed cookies via get or post, but i don't know if or how I can access them in a template.

This actuly sounds like a great idea. My PHP abilities are EXTREAMLY basic, so sadly I can't help.

I do think its a great one though ;)
