I'm looking forward to the addition fo the multiple file uploads to phpbb.
I do have one question though..

When uploading multiple pictures.. will there be an option to specify the order in which these will be displayed?
for example.. i have 10 images and i want to display image 8 and then 4 and 3 and 9 etc opposed to image 1,2,3 to 10

I don't think this has been considered. The pictures currently probably appear in the order they were uploaded (by attachment id).

When using the single file method (3.0) you control the order.

I'm just wondering if there will be a way to control the order while uploading 10 (or more) files at the same time.

Would really appreciate if there was a tool/method to do this (besides uploading files one at a time)

The only method I know you may use to control the order is if you send the files as blob and you control all that is behind the file sending process.
I don't really know the reason for that. Isn't that what's important is that all files are in the server?
Anyway, maybe this can solve that problem...

The reason why I'm asking is for a website that does a lot of photo trip reports.. Order of uploaded and attached files is important when telling the story.

Anyway.. Assuming the multi file upload will be added to 3.1.. I would love to see an option added to it so that when doing a multi file upload you can specify the display order..

Hope this all makes sense

https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb3/pull/833 lists this topic as the RFC.

Please write a summary/spec for the changes made. This should include:

1. A list of user-visible changes. Can users do anything that was not previously possible? In other words, has any functionality been added that users would notice?
2. A list of (major) features that were changed. They could either have changed behavior or have a different implementation (plupload instead of whatever existed before) with the same UI. This is needed for testing the changes.
3. A list of (major) TODO items. Is there functionality missing that must be completed before the code that is already written is shippable? Is there functionality that is not strictly required but that would be extremely helpful? Are there any wishlist items that are not critical?
