  • [bug] The gallery says 20 pictures can be uploaded, but if you do that, the (Done) button disappears and is replaced with a warning message about hitting the gallery limit. I had to delete one picture (now 19 to upload,) to get the (Done) button back.
  • [suggestion] I have thousands of pictures that want to upload to the server to appear in ‘picture of the day’. The only way to do this is by uploading them one-by-one.
    1. At least allow me to select the 20 pictures I’m allowed at one time to upload, or allow me to drag-drop them.
    2. Better would be a place on the server where I could just dump my thousand pictures and tell the system where they are (for my picture of the day.)

This possibly is due to your forum permissions and server php settings.
The forum can't exceed the php settings.
In UBB you have two gallery permissions
Max gallery images
Max gallery image size

On your server php values are
max_file_uploads
post_max_size
upload_max_filesize

I think you will find your are exceeding the php values even if you set UBB settings higher

The pop-up window that displays for you to attach photos should also allow you to drag and drop them into the area where you select the images from your computer.

We do not supply code for a photo of the day from files stored on your server; This would be a script you would have to contract to be developed as a sidebar island. The random gallery image content island that floats around this site utilizes our internal gallery structure which is why it is on so many sites as it extends our gallery feature.

I just tested this luket and I now see what is happening.
On my test I have a limit of 10 max images allowed .
I get the max images allowed message at 10 "You have reached your limit of allowed attachments."and it make me delete one to allow posting.
So I end up with 9 images

So that means the code is taking the setting in Max gallery images
and is using less than Max gallery images statement instead of using greater than to prevent posting.

Also if so the language key should be edited to exceeded not reached and to delete files.

Well, that's one of the problems. If I drag 3 files, there is no complaint, but only one is uploaded.
If I could drag all allowed, (or even more than one,) I would be quite happy.

The wording of the uploader suggests that only 1 be allowed at a time. This is by design, since this is a message forum file attachment manager, rather an specifically a photo gallery software package. UBB.threads assumes a minimum server requirement for processing/compressing what would be multiple large images at the same time while expecting equal performance for the other forum users on server, and possibly other websites, especially on shared servers.

Uploading thousands of images to a single post? You probably would get the exact expereince youre looking for if you used a photo gallery software for managing your gallery of photos, instead of using a message forum software which was designed to manage typed messages. Thousands of images attached to a single post would not be user friendly to the post attachment viewer. A modern photo gallery software package should be able to allow your users to comment on single photos, or even a single gallery folder of photos.

Have a look at Piwigo Gallery software for managing your photo collection online
https://piwigo.org/

with 3rd-party, unsupported code -
As an idea which you could expand upon, is to use Piwigo Gallery to manage your photos, and setup an RSS feed which pulls a random image from one of your defined galleries each day. Then use the UBB.threads RSS Topic Creator to grab that RSS feed and insert it in to your forum as a new post in a dedicated forum category.
UBB.threads RSS Topic Creator @ UBBDev
https://ubbdev.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/323588/1.html

an easier route -
You could also just use the 3rd-party photo gallery's "embed random image" plugin to create a UBB.threads Custom Portal Island. Most gallery software provides a block of php code specifically for this perpose.

Hey thanks Issac, good information.
After I get through this beta launch I'll look into Piwigo Gallery .
