Our forum has posts going back to 2006 and our members include many photos and documents. Everything goes into a single attachments directory. It takes cpanel File Manager a verrry long time to even list the files in that directory.

It would be helpful and much more workable if UBB would create subfolders under attachments based a time period and place the attachments there. URL links contained in the post metadata would reflect the sub-folder. When the calendar flipped to the next time period UBB would create the next sub-folder and put all attachments for that period into the folder.

The time period should be a setting in the config file
Yearly -- 2020
Monthly -- 2020-04
Weekly --2020-04-week number of year

This way admins of Low, Medium, and High volume forums can choose the time period that suits them best.

I have requested the same before. Due to a photography site that had 40,000 files in one folder.
And good luck listing them in a ftp client if there are more that 9,978 files.
But instead of a setting of number of files per folder
It would be nice to have folders created by month and year with the file during the upload..

There was a mod that did this very same thing but it became outdated because of the times and became riddled with security issues.According to UBB.
