I posted this on StackOverflow, and didn't get much love. I'm hoping someone here can help me. Thanks in advance! I have a form that displays information about a single commercial real estate property. I am trying to create a feature on it that allows the user to upload files to Amazon S3 that will then be associated with that property. In a separate question, I asked how this relationship should work. I have a series of questions about this whole thing, but it seems that Stack Overflow likes to keep each question limited to a specific topic. I've created a relationship so that Properties has_many Uploadedfiles and Uploadedfiles belongs_to Properties. I added a column to the Uploadedfile table called "uploaded_file" and mounted CarrierWave to that column I've read through the Readme and Wiki for Carrierwave and Carrierwave_direct. They both talk about adding a single Avatar to a new User, when that new User is created. In my case, the property is already created, and I want to be able to upload multiple files (one at a time, for now) to that Property. (later, I will add a feature that lists out links to each of the uploaded files so that the user can download and open them). Here is what the readme says. What do I need to do in my controllers and views to make this work for me? Rails If you are using Rails and you've mounted your uploader like this: class User < ActiveRecord::Base mount_uploader :avatar, AvatarUploader end things just got a whole lot easier. You can generate a direct upload form like this: class AvatarController < ApplicationController def new @uploader = User.new.avatar @uploader.success_action_redirect = new_user_url end end <%= direct_upload_form_for @uploader do |f| %> <%= f.file_field :avatar %> <%= f.submit %> <% end %>

Hi Jon, I have a similar situation. Do you have a solution yet? I already have a user created and want to only add a profile image. It seems that the success_action_redirect performs a get but I would like to actually perform a post to create a record for that image. Tad

Did you ask on the Carrierwave mailing list/google group? http://groups.google.com/group/carrierwave
