nGen File Field is a field type for the FieldFrame framework by Brandon Kelly. It adds a custom field type allowing you to upload files from the Publish/Edit interface, and also functions as part of the FF Matrix. This extension is useful for creating galleries, download libraries, and much more.
Tried it out and it worked first time, absolutely fantastic. This is one of those items that will be going on my must install with every site I make!!
You’ve made me a very happy man indeed with this one!
Thanks for releasing this one.
Just one question if I may? Does this obey the rules set out in the File Upload Preferences settings as in only allowing file types that are allowed and making sure that security checks are carried out too?
Are there any plans to allow for resize upon upload? I agree that using the imgsizer plugin is perfect for template usage, but for the original image clients have a way of upload 3MB digital images, so an option to nip that in the bud would make this even um, perfect-er.
@imagehat, just use the imgsizer plugin to reisize those images as you’d need.
@createsean, the possibilities are endless.
A small gallery in a portfolio of projects. Multiple images, separate captions, all sortable by client.
A restaurant menu, with images per line item (with price, sale price, description, “on sale” checkbox, is_visible, checkbox, etc.
And so many more.
