Implemented Attachments for PC

    I was just wondering if you could add PM Attachment Support? I have been looking for a solid product to offer this feature, however, the only product I could find was IPB.

    Please let me know.

    PHPBB3 has it too :)

    I think this should be added too in a later version :)

    I also think PC should get attachment support.

    On other forums with basic PM functionality, it's not that big of a deal. But here on XenForo, Personal Conversations are so much different (and better). PCs open a large window of opportunity to allow collaboration amongst a few members within the forum, and that alone increases the need for attachments.

    I say attachments are a greater need in PCs than they are in PMs.

    I already agreed to the need of attachment but what you said makes me agree even more :D

    Storage limits become much more important with attachments there, as there's no way for admins to get into that data. (Well, other than through the DB/FS.)

    I don't understand the problem. Why it would not be possible to restrict the attachment quota for PMs?
    Or am I wrong somehow?

    Hopefully we can get an answer from either Kier or Mike in regards to this being implemented or not.

    I didn't say it'd be hard to implement, though the approach is an interesting question. I was simply pointing at that storage limiting is very important if you can attach things to PCs.

    Would it be possible to set a storage limit per user?
    In terms of kb/MB I mean.

    That could either be just for PC, for forum threads or both.

    Well, if the attachment system is abstracted in a nice way, you would get attachments anywhere that you can use bbcode.

    Ok, well it makes sense to have some limits on a usergroup level eg.

    Oh and I'm interested how to set limits with Xenforo - I really don't like to convert MBs in Bytes for various quotas.

    It would be good if that user just had a storage limit, but also if they could reference attachments across many PC's... wouldn't want to use up all of your Quota by uploading the same file to a few PC's

    Though this does definitely get my vote for attachments in PC's :D

    I vote for attachments in PC's like as "captainslater" suggestions

    The ability to have attachments to personal conversations would be a *huge* plus. Currently people trade their email addresses and do everything by email when they want to exchange attachments privately, or semi privately in a small group.

    I agree. I miss this feature in VB. Should be a default option imho.

    Are you using a modification in your vb forum? Cause I don't have it in my vb3.8 forum.

    Maybe vb4 has it?

    I would really enjoy the idea of adding small/medium sized attachments.

    I'm not sure if I understand, but I think what you are saying is that since PC/PM's are "Private" there is no way for admins to actually see what is attached?

    How about just implementing a "Purge PC attachments over 'x' months old" button or cron?

    Apologies if I misunderstood :)

    Since I am liable for what happens on my board and I wouldn't know what's going on behind closed doors it should be disengageable.
