Manual Install Instructions for SMF


Automatically create and change active attachments directory depending on settings.

The mod can create a directory structure based on post date (subdividing attachments by year, or by year and month or by year, month and day) or simply adding a new directory when the space limit is reached.


  • Choose the method for the management of attachments, it can be set to:
    • Normal: default SMF management (i.e. the admin must take care to change directory)
    • Subdivide by years: a directory corresponding to the current year is created and the attachments are stored there
    • Subdivide by years and months: as before but a subdirectory for each month is created too
    • Subdivide by years, months and days: as before but a subdirectory for each day is created too
    • Change directory when run out of space: every time the attachment directory reach the space limit a new directory is created
  • Create as subdirectory within a directory: if you want to keep all the attachments directories within a certain directory tick this check
  • Main directory for attachments: if the previous check is ticked then you can specify here the path to the directory (if it's not specified the board directory will be used)

Known issues
  • When the option Change directory when run out of space is active the check on the directory size is not 100% accurate
