    So you are new to the online forum culture? or maybe new to xenforo? Need to understand how something works? ASK AWAY!


    First query be mine: Suppose I try to start a new thread, and in that select image attachments, then those images go to my album or directly to the thread?
    And if they go to the thread and suppose after attaching, I don't create the thread but just close the page - what happens to the uploaded images ? (the ones for which progress bar was 100%)

    Aragorn, no the images thus uploaded will go to the central folder which is attachments, user albums is an addon which is not connected to the core xenforo and images stored in any way.
    you can see the structure if you see image info in a thread by context menu.
    like for example the image avatar of rpm is stored here.
    http://www.raid101.com/community/data/avatars/m/0/8.jpg?1340024823

    and the image I am uploading right now is located at.
    http://www.raid101.com/community/in...1/&temp_hash=8cd06185c08bc821985ccf59f00397ae
    this image gets uploaded there, when the progress is shown as 100% and will stay there.

    I hope I am clear.
    In this attached image, I did not embed it as a media in thumbnail or full view, so it is just shown as attachment.

    Meanshile I am attaching a manual of sorts for Xenforo users.
    I think we should all encourage users to download and read it.

    Yeah all images uploaded by the member should be part of their gallery and they should have the option to delete them in the future to free up some space.

    When the a member deletes an image it will also disappear from the post where here used it, this delete function should have option mark multiple images and delete.

    i am sure if these options are possible though :D

    As I said earlier the user albums are a different set of features that we are offering, the attachments are stored on the server.
    as for limits, for particular groups, that is not there as yet. except for size of attachments and types.

    Linking an attachment to a user album will create issues for future upgrades.

    Case in point - All the initial threads that i started on E, some DIY, some trip etc etc, have no images left in the threads.

    The images are there in my user album, but are no longer linked to the thread. This happened after the last upgrade on E.

    Better would be that the image is part of the thread/post, so that even if we upgrade ( which we should soon, 1.1.3 is out ManISinJpr ) we dont lose our image link ups.

    Hmmmmm i am just thinking about "orphaned images" - the case where image was uploaded but thread was never created. I don't have the image names as i never bothered checking that.

    If there is an auto cleanup feature, then i am good

    As I said, the attachments that you uploaded are now visible under your attachments section on your profile or user card.. :D
    I am finding ways for users to delete attachments and Will work on that !!
    for example, my attachments are stored @ http://www.raid101.com/community/index.php?attachments/mine
