Evidentally, some FTP clients, which shall rename nameless (*cough*cough* FileZilla), doesn't transfer files without an extension correctly without some work. After reading at one of these threads on the Simple Machines forum (lost the link), I wondered how hard it would be to add an extension to the filenames that attachments are stored under. So I did some research and figured out it wasn't hard at all.....
PLEASE NOTE that uploaded avatars are considered attachments within SMF and this mod will rename them as well as regular attachments!
What It Does
This mod makes a small change to Subs.php to add the ".321" extension to all attachment filenames. It also renames all attachments to have the ".321" extension. Upon uninstalling, it removes the ".321" extension. This mod also modified the code for the PM attachments mod, if present, in order to effect the same modification to it.
AEVA MEDIA: This mod adds the proper extension (lowercase) to the media attachment file, thus 1_blah becomes 1_blah.jpg if the original filename has an extension of jpg.
stucki requested the addition of support for Aeva Media files. Thanks, Stucki!
There are no admin settings. To disable it, you must remove this mod.
This mod was tested on SMF 2.0.9, but should work on any version of SMF 2.0.x. SMF 1.x and SMF 2.1 is not and will not be supported.
If you use the PM Attachments mod, it should be installed before this mod.
If you use the Aeva Media v1.4w mod, it should be installed before this mod.
This mod should be installed AFTER a forum conversion (phpbb -> smf), not before, as files will not be named correctly during the conversion.
This mod was tested on SMF 2.0.8, but should work on earlier versions of SMF 2.0.x. SMF 1.x is not and will not be supported.
The changelog has been removed and can be seen at XPtsp.com.
