- Limit Space Taken Up By Attachments (Total)
Use this option to limit the total combined amount of disk space in bytes that all attachments can occupy.
Set the option to 0 to have no disk space limit.
- Attachments Per Post
Number of files that may be attached to a single post. Set to '0' to have no limit.
- Attachment Upload Inputs
This option sets how many attachment upload input boxes are displayed on the upload form.
- Attachment URL Inputs
This option sets how many attachment URL input boxes are displayed on the upload form.
- Allow Deletion of Attachments Beyond Edit Time Limit
Allow users to delete attachments, even if the post edit time limit has been exceeded? If you have attachment quotas enabled then you will need this option enabled to allow users to delete attachments once they reach their quota. The user will still need permission to edit posts in the forum for this to apply.
- Allow Deletion of Attachments in Closed Threads
Allow users to delete attachments from threads that are closed? If you have attachment quotas enabled then you might need this option enabled to allow users to delete attachments once they reach their quota. The user will still need permission to edit posts in the forum for this to apply. If the above option is set to NO then this option will only apply up to the edit time limit setting.
- Allow Duplicate Attached Images
This setting only checks for attachments posted by the user that is making the post.
- Resize Images
If an image is larger than your maximum allowed dimensions or filesize, an attempt to resize it will be tried. This may fail if the image is too large to be successfully processed or if the image type is not supported for resizing. When this option is enabled, you should limit the Attachment Input options above to one, otherwise the uploading of multiple large images by one user could strain your server.
- View Attached Images Inline
If thumbnails are enabled, any image without a thumbnail will be shown as a link, regardless of this setting's status, unless the image size happens to be within the thumbnail size limits.
Set this to 'No' if you want to preserve bandwidth or server processor resources.
- Thumbnail Creation
If your version of PHP supports image functions, you may enable the creation of thumbnails for images. This is the master switch to enable/disable thumbnail display. Go to Attachments -> Attachment Manager -> Edit -> Display to choose what image types will be thumbnailed. You will need to go to Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails after changing this setting.
- Thumbnail Size
Maximum width and height that the thumbnail can have. The image will be proportionately resized so that the longest side is no larger than this setting. If you change this setting, you will need to go to Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails.
- Thumbnail Quality
Quality of JPG thumbnails. 75 is a good balance between file size and image quality.
- Thumbnails Per Row
How many thumbnails do you wish to display per line on user's post, assuming you allow more than one attachment per post?
- Thumbnail Color
This setting controls the border and label color in the Thumbnail Creation option above. Please specify the color using standard Web Colors.
- Use Image Lightbox
Use the lightbox for quick display of attached image thumbnails rather than instantly loading the full size image on a new page.
