    [Forum] Insert Image batch uploader - how to sort by filename?

    I'm having some complaints about the "Insert Image" method of bringing photos into the posts -

    It's great because you can upload a whole batch at a time, but it rearranges them in a random order, it might be via filesize rather than filename.

    So if somebody has a sequence of 10 photos and they upload them all at once, they post in a random order.

    Is there a method to force them to upload in order of filename, or at least in the order they were chosen? It would save the headache of previewing the post, then cutting and pasting into the right order.

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at
