The Insert Attachment add-on is designed to insert image attachments into the message. So instead of the attachments gallery showing small images below the message, the add-on will insert the


tag for each attached image which has not been manually inserted already. Those viewing your forum will enjoy not having to click a bunch of small images in the image gallery to view images.

  • Attachments are inserted immediately after message is saved
  • Admin Option to allow full size image or thumbnail attachment codes to be inserted
  1. Download and unzip it.
  2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
  3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
  4. Upload the addon-InsertAttachment_v1.6.xml file.
  5. Click the Install Add-on button.

simple and effective. works great for us. we had a load of new users who weren't aware they have to manually add the images to the posts, now they don't have to!, thanks Andy :)
This add-on is really the icing on the cake, so to say, for making the viewing of your forum a pleasurable experience for your users. With more pictures being put into posts nowadays, it makes for better discussions and more lively threads when users don't have to continually click on postage-stamp size thumbnails to see what others are talking about.
Works great in conjunction with Insert Attachments All. Highly recommended
Great work. Should be in xenforo core.
Very nice one Andy as I have an ongoing problem with mobile users just leaving their files as attachments.

This should be standard with XenForo!
Awesome thank you very much.
