[forge:site-support:#5069]

We implemented multiple uploads in [#4659], but it's not really clear how to use it. Also, the HTML5 method can be a pain if you're trying to attach multiple files in different directories or stuff like that.

One possibility is to spawn an additional "Browse Files" after selecting a file, like is done on SourceForge File Release System uploads.

While we're at it, we should also add the ability to "cancel" an attachment selection. Currently, there doesn't appear to be a way to do that.

    Also I think the uploaded files should keep a chronological ordering. Currently if I'm editing a post to upload another image the chronological ordering isn't preserved.
