but to asnwer your question, I don't think it really matters, as when you upload a file, you don't see the file as its name once uploaded but as numbers, so it would be impossible to know which file belongs with which user anyway
matthewf wrote:the UCP only tracks what you upload (only one users uploaded attachments), if Im a admin and want to see what some one has uploaded, from a lot of users, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do this, you can see what a user has uploaded using manage user, but that is one at a time, as for Orphan Attachments, that only tracks attachments that aren't attached to any post
so what Im asking is, how as an admin able to see EVERYONES attachments that have been uploaded to the board? in phpbb2 attachment mod, you can easy do this, as there was an option to globally allow admin to see and delete all attachments, in phpbb3, there doesn't seem a feature like that,
and not all admin with have access to the database or have FTP access to the board

Nobody answered my question... maybe one of you know where is the MOD I need.
I want the uploaded files being stored in different folders by date. It is a popular feature of current forum programs.
I had planned making it myself, but after looking into the code I found it would be too large a project for me.

This feature is requested by some of the Chinese phpBB2 users, and I think it would be a common problem for a forum which has been running for more than 3 years and has topics more than 100,000.
Have you met such problems? I don't know whether it will break the file system or not when there is a large number of attached files in ./files folder. When the number exceeds 100,000, I can hardly browse the folder in ftp client and backup the recent files. And I think it would reduce the efficiency of attachment management system.
I have studied some other forum programs, most of them solves this problem by sorting files in different folders named by time.
I think this feature is needed when the forum grows large. I suggest the dev team adding this feature in future plan.
