How to view associated resources/attachments

My environment is Rails 2.0.2, TYPO 5.1.1. running at RailsPlayground
using the Victor Persson’s Dirtylicious theme

Can someone steer me in the correct direction? I can upload
files/attachments and see them in the admin “manage uploads” feature.

I can also associate uploads with articles when I edit articles(i.e.
posts).

The problem: I cannot figure out how to make these ‘uploads’ visible as
attachments with the articles(i.e. posts) by simply using the TYPO
administration features.

Do I need to modify the default layout or one of the views? Any ideas
are greatly appreciated.

I think I found a solution. This is what I inserted into the partial
_article.html.erb under my chosen theme ‘Dirtylicious’

Posted by <%= author_link(article) %> <%= js_distance_of_time_in_words_to_now article.published_at %> +

+ <% if Resource.count(:conditions => "article_id = #{article.id}") > 0 %> + Attachments:
+ <% Resource.find(:all, :conditions => "article_id = #{article.id}").each do |r| %> +    &nbsp<%= link_to r.filename, this_blog.base_url + "/files/" + r.filename %>
<% end %> <% end %>

Anybody have any better ideas?

Hello,

first, sorry for not replying faster, I was in holliday and got
internet access only tonight. Trying to answer the pile of mails
that’s waiting for me.

The way attachments was designed on Typo has always been a mistery to
me, and I didn’t want to break it – yet – because it actually had a
purpose.

– uploading via admin/content/new attaches files to the post, but they
will only be displayed in the rss / atom feed. This is intended to be
used for podcasts.
– uploading via admin/resources/new does not attach files to a post.
To you them, you need to c/p the attachment url and do a link /
object / whatever. Pictures uploaded this way can be found with the
images management button of the FCKEditor.

To display articles from your theme, do in your theme somthing like :

@article.ressources.each |foo| do
link_to foo.filename, “#{this_blog.default_url}/#{foo.filename}”
end

Cheers,
Frédéric
