Lack of Interest Public side Attachment Browser

    Hi All,

    We have been looking for a gallery solution for Xen, but having seen the Attachment Browser in ACP it has occured that this would be an ideal solution for us to have a user side equivalent. The idea would be that the users could click on a page to view all recent picture attachments, and click them to go through to the source thread.

    Is there an add-on that currently does this?

    Many thanks in advance for your replies. :)

    There's this which allows members to view attachments they have uploaded: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/attachment-viewer.411/

    You could try speaking to the developer/owner to see if they would consider expanding it to include a general attachments view for all members.

    Did you mean to post this in suggestions? It seems more like a question or an add-on request.

    Ahh sorry Brogan - saw it more as a small tweak that could be a useful feature for all - but add on might be the way to go :)

    No, that's fine.

    I think a suggestion for this has already been made, which is why I was checking.
    I'll see if I can find the thread.

    Thanks Brogan - much appreciated. I have previously asked if it was a possible Xenporta add on?

    Thanks Brogan! Very much appreciated!

    Have sent a message to the developer to see if we could get the add on expanded - seems there is a definite need for a public attachment/image viewer. Would be a fantastic and user friendly way to get gallery integration into Xen without the need for separate storage/add on etc as you get the images posted automatically when adding them to a thread. One of the big pitfalls with our previous (non Xen) system was that people were posting and commenting on images outside of the thread structure.

    Appreciate your assistance sir - and definitely think it would make a very cool 'switch on' feature in Xen to service the many photography/iphoneography/art forums that utilise Xen for its beautiful looks and clean themes.

    We will release our full featured Attachment Manager addon within the next weeks.

    It allows your users to browse and delete their attachments (all controlled by a user group setting) and also to easily reuse them for additional posts/messages via a button in message editor that pops up an attachment selector.
