You can't remove attachments from the editor (in 3.4 it was not even a part of the editor) so we lose control over images. The Uploads field allows us to limit uploads to 1 or multiple, but if we allow 1, they can still attach multiple using the editor. I also like to use Uploads to place the images where I want in the article. Please allow us to turn off attachments, so we have full control over images using Uploads. In 3.4 you simply removed it from the editor. That gives us full image count/placement control, but you could add a setting for those that want it in the editor. Thanks
Example of article:
Single Upload (image)Text
Editor (body)Attachments (User can upload unlimited images that I do not want in the article, I should be able to disable this.)
I would put the article on waiting to be approval than delete the extra stuff and approval it as a work around.
Thanks for the temporary workaround idea but that is not what I want to do. This seems to be an oversight in 4.0. Attachments simply conflict with uploads. If you have dedicated places for images, what is the point? They can just upload whatever and however many they want.
Hoping this can be addressed. There should be a checkbox when adding the editor, "Turn on attachments?"
I really need to be able to control this. Any ideas? This seems like an oversight in 4.0 to me.
Does this conflict bother anyone else?
It definitely complicates certain things, yes. I would prefer having control over this.
I would prefer having control over this as will
i love the editor field but in some database i created i don't need my member to upload any things using the editor
so more control over this is needed
So, I came across the same exact problem but in IP.Gallery.
One of my members decided to upload 50 photos into the album. Which is great.
But in his enthusiasm, he also uploaded all 50 photos into the album description's editor! Which is ... not so great.
And then ... he did this 3 times before I had a chance to message him to explain what he was doing wrong.
Wow I had no idea that was possible in Gallery too, I am not a Gallery user really.
This really needs to be addressed. I don't understand why in 3.4 it worked perfectly. Just strip attachments from the editor.
Yeah, this... probably shouldn't be possible
+1 for this request.
Should be a toggled feature to be honest, not completely removed.
There maybe times when you need to attach an image into the editor relating to the "batch" of images you are uploading.
