Ok, so I figured out how to make an attachment. It turns out the file I was trying to attach was empty and therefore would not attach.

I am still wondering if their is any way to attach a file to a private message?

Thanks,

Alan

How do I attach a file? I have tried using the attach files button, then browsing to the file I wish to attach but have not been able to do so. I even tried in the test area of this forum but with no luck. I have also tried to attach a file to this post. We will see if it works.

Also, can an attachment be added to a private message?

Thakns,

Alan

No, it's not possible to attach files to private messages yet. In fact, this was a missing feature in 2.1.6 :\

Rafael, I am willing to implement this feature. I am using the latest release, 2.1.8, and I would like to add the support over that version. I am ready to start working right now as I need that feature.

How should I go about this so that it can be added to new versions (JForum 3)? The page about how to contribute is not yet available.

Thanks in advance,

Diego

Take a look at the code of PostAction.java, method insertSave(), and then at PrivateMessageAction.java. There you will find the calls (PostAction.java) to handle Attachments.

Thanks a lot, I just saw your post. It is great working with JForum, I had no trouble finding the places where I had to make the changes.

I am nearly done, the attachments for private messages are working now. You had left the tables and entity classes ready (I suppose you planned to implement it, thanks again), I just had to change the actions, DAO, etc. I will now look into the quota checking configuration to add that control.

Let me know how to contribute the attachment support.
