A bug has been reported and acknowledged by phpBB regarding image attachments. They are working on a fix. If you are posting multiple images and preview the post before submitting, only one image will be shown. The workaround is to submit the post without previewing. Posts without images or one imag...

Re: Need idea to help with sorting docs in file managers

Dolphin which is installable in MX allows comments and tags to be added to files. For example Wallpaper can be added as a comment and/or tag. You can sort by comment or tag.

Dolphin does bring in KDE libraries.
