We just released our latest ExpressionEngine add-on. This add-on is similar to nGen File Field but offers a fair bit of control over your image resizing, thumbnail settings, and of course uploads the files to Amazon S3.
Edit: As of June 23 EE2 is supported. However, due to current limitations in EE2, third party fieldtypes cannot be easily used in SAEFs. We’re hoping that this limitation will be remedied but it is out of our control for the time being.
Freeform doesn’t interface with custom fields or other extensions, so I don’t see any way to accomplish this without requiring hacks.
As a followup to the EE 2 question earlier, I have ported most of this to the EE 2 fieldtype API, but there are a few bugs that are outside of our control. We will probably be waiting for EE 2.1 and next version of Matrix 2 to be made available before officially introducing the Simple S3 Uploader for EE 2.
I’d recommend using the jQuery Form Plugin to submit your SAEF via AJAX, displaying whatever “please wait” thing is appropriate while it posts and using the callback function to do whatever you need to do after it is done. Beyond that I’m not sure of the specifics of your project, so I’m not sure what else to tell ya
Well the jquery form plugin is great, unfortunately i need the user to get the link to their newly uploaded file. I purchased the SAEF Redirect extension from Solspace and that allows me to redirect them to the newly created post with their download link. So now i have the two pieces, i have the ajax submit working and i have the redirect… i somehow need to merge them so i can get that download link instantly Would really appreciate any suggestions :D
Nevermind, i went to the plugins site and read the documentation. It provides you with the response which contains the S3 download link and any other information i want! AWESOME! Thank you so much for the great plugin! This is really exciting! I have to write a tutorial about it soon.
sounds like a really cool setup. I’ve been wanting to create a live demo of what can be done with the add-on but I haven’t had the time yet (been working mostly on an EE 2 port… shhhh!). a tutorial would be awesome too.
