  • [Forum] Attachment order randomized since upgrade to 4.0.3

    Hey all

    I was reading this thread which suggested the issue had been sorted:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...reversed-order

    Since updating my forums to 4.0.3 my users are saying that the attachments are being posted in a different order to the order they are being updated.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Cheers

    I am having the same problem with 4.1.3

    In version 3.8.x attachments where shown in the order they were listed in the Attachment Manager. Now even without using the new file selector, the attachments seem to be listed in the order the upload finished, and since many threads are used for the file transfer, this is virtually random.

    Did I miss a setting somewhere?

    Can attachments be sorted by name, time stamp or upload sequence rather than manually?

    Can I disable the multiple tread "feature" of the attachment manager?

    Thanks

      Well it seems that nothing has been fixed from 4.0.3 to 4.1.8 as they still get sorted randomly. I have gone as far as posting the first image and then submitting the post and the one image is definitely first, where it should be. I then edit the post and insert the second image I want then save. Guess where the second attachment shows up. First place exactly where I did not want it.

      This is beyond ridiculous.

        I agree, this is very bad. I also found out that when you edit out an attachment of a post, the remaining attachments get randomized again, making it extra difficult to find the next attachment to edit out. Please fix this.

          Plus one.

          Is there a setting we missed somewhere? It's such a pain to sort items by hand.

            Unfortunately this is the way it works. When you upload multiple attachments, they won't be necessarily uploaded in the order they are listed. Insert your attachments inline if they need to be in a specific order.

              What a shame. Dealing with Facebook and Google Plus savvy users, the handling of pictures in vBulletin makes us look archaic and soon I fear irrelevant.
