Yes and kind of. The rules say that the field settings are checked first, if that’s set then it will check the file upload settings associated with the field. If either of those aren’t set it will default to the extension settings. This basically means it’s an easy way to have global settings across all your file fields. Overall I’m not very married to the idea and am strongly thinking of removing it in the next release as it just adds confusion and another un-necessary setting location.
Quick feature request: I’d really like to turn on “multiple files” across the board, but then have a way (maybe with the change-type-to-dropdown-list hack?) to set an INDIVIDUAL INSTANCE to only allow a single file. It’d really help me out on a couple of projects, if it’s not too hard to implement!
I can’t seem to download the zipfile from the head of this thread, using FireFox 2 on OS X. I get to this page:
…and it’s blank, as if it’s waiting for a redirect. Any one else having this problem?
Mark, this is truly a great update to already useful extension. If you worked in Allienne’s suggestion of being able to change the settings per instance like the multi-text extension - at lease the single or multiple setting - it would be absolutely perfect!
Thanks again for all your great work!
This extension is great. Just what I have been looking for! I’ve got a question though. How do you dynamically access a thumbnail of an uploaded image? As it is right now it just sticks in a URL to the original image, but I see no way to get it to output the URL to the thumb?
I think this would be great so my authors could attach multiple images to any posting and it would just append a series of thumbnails that can be clicked through to the full sized image. What would be the best way of going about this?
I can get the File extension working, as long as I don’t allow people to preview their entry before they submit it.
If I let them do a preview, the file upload field doesn’t get re-filled in correctly, so they lose that image in their submission.
And the image itself can’t be displayed in the preview, though that’s not as critical.
…I should mention I’m using 1.1.0…
