    If you remove the flash uploader, and have the asset manager on, then you have to select an image, click on the + sign to add another upload box, go in there, choose a file, click the + sign again to add another upload box and repeat the exercise, till you get maximum of 10 upload boxes.

    Then you need to upload those attachments and repeat the exercise again!

    There is no way to upload multiple attachments in one go, like it is there in other paid forum software.

    vBulletin 4 has officially been relegated to the status and features of free forum software, which I guess IB thinks, it is.

This does not appear for me any longer and I'm only given the option to insert one at a time. Your suggestion is how mine is already set up, so does not fix for me.
    You are correct. It doesn't fix Image uploads but it does allow for multiple attachment uploads.

    Go to ACP->Settings->Options and select Message Attachment Options. Set 'Attachments Per Post' to what you want the max to be AND set 'Attachment Upload Inputs' to the number of input boxes you want.

    That will give the ability to upload multiple files in a similar way as vB 3.

    I've deleted the uploader.swf file and uploaded the empty file. I've also have 'Yes, Ajax Uploaded by Default' set in Message Attachment Options. I can still upload multiple files in both the basic and advanced Asset Manager. If other forum owners are saying this functionality has been removed what am I missing? The only difference there may be is that my forum is running on 4.2.0

    Same here. I only get the basic uploader as an option regardless of whether I've changed to the AJAX option or not.
    I'm on 4.2.2

    No -- I have it set to ~~ "Yes, AJAX upload by default" --- all I get is the basic uploader

    What are typical permission settings for this file? 644 or 755?

    This shouldn't have any affect on that unless you turned the Asset Manager off.
