File uploads in comments

Does anyone have an extension that would allow site visitors to upload
pictures with their comments?

You might be able to rip some of the ideas from page_attachments. It
has good examples of how to handle an associated model with upload.

In fact, it would be best to have an extension that’s something like
page_attachments with comments - I guess that may be an often required
thing.

Sean, would it be fair to say that all that should be required are 4
things:

  1. An additional migration to extend the page_attachments table
  2. A UI to capture the comment - I think that it is a partial that needs
    modifying
  3. Something to save it to the table, probably where page_attachments
    saves its image path
  4. A tag to retrieve the comment

I imagine it could be bolted onto page_attachments but I don’t know how
much trouble it will be to keep it updated as page_attachments
changes…

I guess you’re right - it should be a separate extension and
page_attachments would make a great starting point!
