Announcement for 7.6.1 included two features:

-- Attachment Display is now customizable between Grouped or Inlined.

-- Attached images can now be automatically resized and/or compressed at the time of upload.

Where can I find some documentation of where the features are enabled/controlled and how they work? Our forum is still at Ver 7.5.9 because of a custom inline image upload mod that we really like. We would like to upgrade but need to actually understand the new capability in the newer version before giving up the capability of our current modification.

I assume the resizing parameters are enabled and set in control panel.

Is the inline vs grouped a global control panel setting or a post level option? What happens when a user uploads some images they want displayed inline along with a PDF document?

All of the attachment options are located in the Attachments section of the UBB.threads Control Panel, as seen from my attachment.

The following two posts are an example of when files of different types are uploaded in a mixed order, and displayed using the forum attachment display setting of GROUPED vs INLINED

Attachment Display setting: GROUPED

Grouped images are displayed as thumbnails grouped together under the post.

Attachment Display setting: INLINED

Inlined images are displayed at full width (while still fitting within the post width) just under the post text.

Grouped attachment display is good for when the majority of your forum posts are technical or include many attached images at once, such as events.

Inlined attachment display is useful for when your users often post just a few (or only one) images at a time with each post.

The display type should be specific to how you'd prefer your post attachments to display.

"Grouped" is what is currently used on UBBCentral.
