XF 2.2 Anything prepared for a second Attachment-Table?


Well-known member
Real life problem:

Forum A: Running
Forum B: Clean install or copy from A

New Add-on in Betastatus, many pictures, at the moment not attached, but hotlinked,

If I add the pictures now to the messages, I have them in the attachment-table.
How can bring them later to a running system?

With a second attachment-table? Is there anything prepared to do this?

Or maybe by the hash in the filename?
Then write an importer and do something like:
Add new items to the attachment-table; use the hash to rename the file?

Maybe this is the solution, have not watched it, instead of this I have all attachments hotlinked and written a small importer to download and attach them.
