RE: Hide Attachments (#) link when using thumbnails
If a post had a mix of embedded images and other file attachments, I think the attachment link should be displayed, but only for the other file attachments.
But you're right, this is a subjective thing. I'm simply responding to a situation that has caused some confusion to some of our users. I made a stab at modifying this myself, but couldn't track the code that generates the attachment link all the way through.
I could see this as an Admin option: Display the Attachments link for embedded images? Yes/No. That would give both of us what we would prefer.
