May I also suggest a simple Cancel button or X on top of the dialog for those cases where the user does not want it’s changed saved.

Yes I was suggesting it to myself too.
Unfortunately I wrote the plugin in such a way that the values in the (hidden) custom field are added as soon as a file is checked in the iframe (you can notice it looking throught the opacity layer) so I should rewrite part of the plugin to make it change the values in the cf only when the ‘save’ button is clicked.
Sadly, untill I change the code (probably in some years considering my slowness) you must live with it.
I’ll add it to the todo list though.

Re: bot_file_upload: upload and edit files from within the write tab

With version 0.4 this plugin should have reached a mature stage.

Changes

  • Now files can be ordered as you like. The file list can then be output in the frontend in the exact order you specified in the backend using the usual <txp:file_download_list /> tag but with an hackish ‘sort’ attribute (this is not really a hack, it’s only an undocumented value )
  • Added a ‘cancel’ button as per Jelle’s suggestion

To list the files in a specific order in the frontend you just need to use the ‘sort’ attribute this way;

sort='field(id, <txp:custom_field name=''your_files_cf_name'' />)'

Of course you must replace ‘your_files_cf_name’ with your real custom field name.

Despite I tried to test it deeply it could be I left something. I count on you all for reporting issues.

Re: bot_file_upload: upload and edit files from within the write tab

Quick clarification question: Can this plugin be used with more than one custom field at a time? I have articles that have up to 10 fields that will take file IDs, and I’m looking for a solution so clients don’t have to type in the ID for each field. Thank you.

Er… no, sorry.
I promise I’ll try to add this ability to the next version, together with drag-n-drop sorting a la bot_image_upload.
The only issue is I don’t think I’ll have the time in the next few days.

That would be awesome. I think I can wait. :-) Thanks. bot_image_upload is terrific.

Re: bot_file_upload: upload and edit files from within the write tab

I’m getting an error when I enable this plugin.

Warning: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'from textpattern where `ID` = '2' limit 1' at line 1 select from textpattern where `ID` = '2' limit 1 in /nfs/c07/h02/mnt/109250/domains/softball.bc.ca/html/textpattern/lib/txplib_db.php on line 89

Is this a compatibility issue with Txp 4.4.1?

Hi Mave, this shouldn’t be a problem with Txp 4.4.1, at least it works for me.
The first thing that comes to mind is whether you created a custom field called “files” or configured the plugin accordingly if you use another name (read instructions in case you need help).

Re: bot_file_upload: upload and edit files from within the write tab

First of all, thanks for a great plugin redbot.

Tried it with glz_custom_fields, but cannot make it work. Should it work?

Hi,
yes it should work.
Did you create a custom field named “files”?
Did you configure the plugin accordingly if you want to use another cf?

Re: bot_file_upload: upload and edit files from within the write tab

Thanks redbot for prompt response. My bad, I somehow had overlooked the case sensitivity in the field name.
