Title: Attachment Manager
Post by: OzExcalibur on September 25, 2006, 04:36:07 am
I was first attracted to SMF for its ability to upload attachments, I run a very graphic heavy forum for Paint Shop Pro / Photoshop users and I really need a better way of managing attachments.

Instead of the standard SMF option to just delete all attachments by date or by size I would really like sometihng that gave the option to choose what Category and even what Message Board to delete them from as well.

I have some boards where I would like to remove attachments monthly or even weekly, but I also have some boards that I want the attachments to stay forever.

If it could be added to the Attachment Manager section it would be great, or even if it was added to the dropdown menu inside the message board topic view, and I had to tick every message I wanted to remove the attachments from would be good enough. In the same drop down menu as Delete Selected, Remove Selected etc etc I mean.

The forum has only been open for about 6 weeks and has 10,000 attachments and is using nearly 2 GB of server space so it is way to many to delete one by one in the current Attachment Manager.

Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

That doesn't seem that hard to do really. I just have to check out the database struture for attachments.
