    Default Attachment order

    Looking for some help by somebody with more computer knowledge me. For some reason you can no longer select the order in which your attachments are posted. Before you could upload the images and then select the order in which they would appear in the post. That no longer exists. Now you select your images , upload them and they appear in random order. I thought it may be by file size , but that isnt it. I've tried selecting them in last to first , first to last , starting at the top of the list and starting at the bottom. All with no results. You can upload them 5 different times and they upload in different order just about every time. Anybody have any suggestions??? I have emailed Ron but he didnt know.

    which method are you using?
    "Quick Reply", "Go Advanced", or Ron's Manage Attachments method?

    I know this is not ideal, but you can try it:
    When you create a post, only upload one image (the first one). Then submit the post. Go back and edit your new post with the one image to add the next image: Go Advanced, Manage the attachments, upload the next one, Save the edit. Do this again for the 3rd image, etc. So you are adding only one image per edit of a post.

    When I was doing some research on this, I saw someone say that the image appear in the order they were uploaded. when you upload a bunch all at the same time, the largest one (file size) usually takes the longest and will be last, for example.

    I looked through the code but it wasn't evident how to sort by filename however I haven't given up on that quite yet - just need more time to dig and test.

    I fixed your last magazine scan posts via the back end. It is time consuming, unfortunately.
