Quote from: Arantor on May 26, 2022, 03:19:29 AMThank you for acknowledging that there is a fairly substantial problem here, with a core feature.

Quote from: Antechinus on May 26, 2022, 08:00:41 PMSome people are going to think that letting members know what the limits are is useful. It seems like the polite thing to do, IMO.
Quote from: Arantor on May 27, 2022, 12:48:15 PMSo there are multiple issues here.1. The issue you linked relates to id shuffling with attachments.2. The number of reported attachments 'left' is routinely wrong; e.g. this site says 36 attachments quota, but uploading 1 item leaves me with it saying 19 left.3. It's possible to post files over the quota in a single post as long as each individual file is below its own quota.4. This thread is a demonstration of how confusing and unintuitive the user interface is for attachments.
QuoteI was hoping this was the team acknowledging that work was needed, and that potentially work would be accepted into the core for a future version.
QuoteThis in particular is a sticking point for me because I have a litany of features that would be great for a future version of SMF but no-one will give me any clue whatsoever if any of them *might* be included.
QuoteI'm fairly sure you think my stance is unreasonable,
Quote from: Sesquipedalian on May 27, 2022, 02:34:17 PMRegarding the fourth, I can't yet say whether changes to the UI would make it into a patch or would need to wait for a future version. It would depend on the nature of the proposed changes.

QuoteGo code something you like.
Quote from: Sir Osis of Liver on May 28, 2022, 06:01:34 PMOk, mostly working now (except user dropmenu). Things I like -Attachments: Simple and compact. Don't need the collapse/uncollapse button, should always be open. And collapsible additional post options in post settings should always be disabled (never understood why that's there). Could do without max_files_progress bar, pretty much just decorative and doesn't always work. Also I'd remove post options, nobody uses them.
QuoteThings I don't like -
QuoteACP: First off, main menu admin button doesn't take you to ACP, just opens/closes dropmenu.
QuoteMostly, when you click on menu items, it looks like nothing happens, as working parts are off screen,
QuoteYou have to scroll down to see what's there.
QuoteWith sidebars content appears next to menu, not below, like that better.
QuoteJust have to get around to doing something with all the crap that's next to sidebars when you first get to ACP, put something else there.
