A simple method to save attachments into monthly folder

Post by jwxie » Sun Mar 23, 2008 6:18 pm

Hey guys, a brilliant user from phpbbchina.com had just finished his simple mod to modify the current attachment. :lol: :lol:

He aimed to modify the attachment so that the system will atomically create a monthly folder.

Let say today is April 1, 2008, the first upload will then called the system to create a folder "2008-04", and all the uploads from the April (1st t0 30th) will all go to the same folder "2008-04"

All attachemtns from May 1st to 30th will all go into the same 2008-05

this add-on is very simple and I believed it's very easy for phpBB to add this since it doesn't require any SQL add-on, but modifications of a few places.
plus it set the files's prefix based on the Board's id and uploaded date.

It only required about 2 mins and 2 files to modify.

ps:
找到 means FIND
改为 means Replace with



I really hope our phpBB official can add this since this mod had been requested for many times and it will worth a while for the team to try a little modification for the next or next next release.

It's commonly intergated in CMS and blog system^^
