Adding A "Upload Files" Page?

Hey everyone,

Im not sure if its possible to do this without a plugin but is it possible to make a file upload page? I need this in order to allow users to upload plugins for a software I am working on. If this does requre a plugin is anyone willing to code it. (I know PHP but I havent looked at the Vanilla Forum API)

Thanks,

  • there are a couple of gallery type plugins,

    then again you could use regular discussion and allow uploads of code files and use http://vanillaforums.org/addon/myattachments-plugin for consolidation by user.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    I like your plugin. I'll go with that until I get the time to start coding my own. ^-^
    I have a couple suggestions for yours. Would it be possible for you to implement an option which allows admins and mods to require themselves to look at the attachment before it becomes visible to the public? Would it also be possible for you to make it so that admins can change the "My Attachments" tab (located on profiles) to say whatever they want?

  • I like your plugin

    thx.

    you mean this http://vanillaforums.org/addon/myattachments-plugin

    then you should click on to the plugin and then click ask questions there so your questions get tied to the plugin.

    Would it be possible for you to implement an option which allows admins and mods to require themselves to look at the attachment before it becomes visible to the public?

    not sure what you mean it is already public by virtue of uploading with file upload plugin.

    it just retrieves info from attached files in regular discussions.

    But generally, I don't add alot of additional features without a pledged donation.


    as far as title change

    $Definition['My Attachments'] = "Yes it can be changed";

    for approval in category in file uploads category.

    what you could do is make a special category and only give that category file upload permissions.

    then you could set moderation approval - but you would need to change to change that as well to only refer to the category.

    maybe check event $this->FireEvent('AfterCommentSave'); and change some variables depending on category.

    would need to be programmed though, not sure how easy or hard it would be.
