Page_part_types multiple uploads

I don’t know if anyone else is using this, but dror’s multiple upload
type is exactly what I need for a client’s site that should have been
done on Monday. Except I can’t make it work. The initial upload goes
great, I just upload over 70 pictures into one gallery. i even got it
to spit our xml fo rsome flash stuff.

So far so good. But if I add images, it gives me an error. I have
fought with this all week, and gotten nowhere. The part page, for
some reason creates a second part, with no name and then I cannot
save. Once I upload a gallery, I cannot save ANYTHING in that page
again, because of this part. I have tracked it down to a mysterious
second iframe which gets cancelled. then the correct iframe is
loaded, but only on the first run.

dror, if you are reading, please give this a look. I am using the
basic parts you provided and 5.2… thanks.

Can you send me the error you get?

Does anyone have the code Dror published for this upload. I’ve tried to
build my own file upload but find that trying to graft anything into
Radiant is a pain in the backside. Any help would be great. Thanks

I have the code somewhere, but I ended up not using it. I never did
get it to work correctly.

As for file uploads, do check out the new Mental (development) branch
in SVN. Using extensions and acts_as_attachment, I got something very
workable up and running. And added things to Radiant is MUCH easier
than before. Be warned, this is very much in flux, but the direction
it is going is very interesting.

I have an SVN repository with a simple upload manager, but Textdrive
is not allowing anonymous access to it for some reason. I will try to
get that sorted out and post a link today or tomorrow.

Thanks keith. Need to try and get my head around Radiant more to fully
understand it. Being new >6 months to ruby its also a challenge!

John asked if I would make this public last week, so here it is. It
is very rough, basically just an assets manager built around
acts_as_attachment. I did include the RMagick thumbnail generation,
though this will kill your application on Textdrive. RMagick simply
uses too much memory. I want to look at shifting this over to
MiniMagick, but haven’t gotten around to it.

I have included some very basic Radius tags for the uploads. Right
now, I have a wrap tag, <r:asset ></r:asset>, which takes a Name or
Id of the asset. Please look under lib/assets_tags.rb and see what is
available. They should be (mostly) commented.

I had some support for tagging the assets, but I took it our for now.
I need to get tagging support in general worked out before I put that
back in, but ultimately, I would like to be able to do something like
<r:assets:each tag="[tag_name"]>…</r:asssets:each>. Shouldn’t be
too hard.

Feedback, suggestions and help greatly appreciated. Like I said, this
is just a very simple start.

In order for this to work, you need the latest Mental branch, not the
current release (0.5.2). Once you have run your migrations, (the
database has changed) you need to place this extension(the root
folder “assets”) in the extensions folder. Then run “rake
db:migrate:extensions”, which will set up the database tables for the
assets.

Once you have the mental branch working, there is a new menu item,
“Extensions”. This should show the assets extension and a new tab
should show up, called Images or Assets (I changed it and don’t
remember what I left it as…).

I completely forgot, this currently requires the acts_as_attachement
plugin: http://weblog.techno-weenie.net/articles/acts_as_attachment
You will need to install that before it will work.

I realize this is all very complicated, as I write this. Please feel
free to ask for help!

One more thing, how would I graft this into an existing Radiant
installation? Does it have to be broken up and the files placed in thier
respective folders, or does it live in a directory somewhere. Thanks
