SMF Development > Applied or Declined Requests

[Request] Multiple attachments at once !!!

<< < (3/9) > >>

IchBin™:
Not to mention if a mod is made, and it is shown that it is indeed useful and wanted by the community, it's more likely to have a chance at making it into he core.

I suggest that you request a mod. This may be considered for future, future releases... but a mod is more likely to happen in any timeframe that you would want.

Honestly, as I said...   in  8 years of running and 10+ years of using forums, I have had maybe ONE case where this would have been useful... and even then, I got around it just fine by attaching the images one at a time.
(You can have multiple attachments, you just can not select them into the attachment option  "all at once")

No seriously 10+ years doesnt matter. Forums has changed a lot in 10 years.

I am running a mobile forum where I uplaod 50+ wallapaers everyday and without this mod its a big pain to
add 50+ attachments in threads ONE BY ONE!

SMF needs some good features, a good mobile version NOT WAP (curve mobile is really poor)

and SMF needs good features which do not harm the forum load and multiple attachments at once will only add up to the list. wont harm anyone.

You are telling to use MODs in SMF when u yourself know properly how hard and painful it is to add mods to smf. If one clashes with other > forum down instantly.. all mods are written into the original forum files which is a BIG ISSUE. So do not recommend mods please.


emanuele:
There are several different use cases for a forum, in mine for example I have attachments disabled at all using only external resources.

BTW, I have to thank you all for this feature request because while I was trying to implement a multi-upload using uploadify I discovered a rather nasty bug in SMF that Spuds fixed! :D

Upakul,

I disagree with your contention that experience does not matter.

I'd also like to point out that - while your instance was indeed frustrating, you are the exception, not the rule...  MOST forums do not need 50 files uploaded to a single post. (and if I was running a forum that did need something along those lines, I would not use a post - I'd use something like the aeva gallery or download mods.)

I did admit that a multi-upload would be useful. I merely clarified that it would be useful only to a limited set of forum. Most forums wouldn't need it. -- this is why we suggested a mod.

Additionally... I disagree with your statement about mods.  In my test forum, I had 160+ mods installed... with minimal manual edits done.


(mobile versus wap is a completely different topic and doesn't belong in this discussion)

finally... it does look like one of the smf devs has taken an interest (which is the point of this board, after all) but I still feel that this would be better as a mod first.

BTW: to die2mrw007 and pushkardua - Flash is probably a BAD way to handle multi-uploads these days....

I still disagree with the point to make it as mod and not include it in core. I just wish to know what harm it will do if its provided in Core. We can have it as option in admin panel whether to use flash uploader or basic one.

Just see this screenshot (an SMF 1.xx running forum having flash uploader)
