I run a heavy attachment forum, there can be as many at 70 to 100 attachments in a topic. I would like to back up these attachments without having to go through each individual file. I know attachments are located in the database, under a different file name but to rename, and then figure out where it was originally is an incredibly taxing problem.
My thought is... is it possible to piggyback off the attachments, browse files section...
To be able to sort them by board, add an additional check box that will download the file(s) to my hard drive or specified location as apposed to delete.
One of the things I have noticed so far is that there could be multiple files with the same name, so a rename might be necessary to keep some files from being overwritten.
One though would be by post number like this: File name is sample.jpg x 5 copies of the same file.
Rename: Post #1, 5 attachments
seen again Post #20, 2 attachments
Or some type of naming system that will allow for an unlimited system of renaming.
What do you think?
