I’ve got 2 models - let’s call them User and Image. User has_many
images. (Thanks to Mark Reginal James ) I have a single form where i
can create a user and add to him any number of images, which are
uploaded using file_column plugin.
Now 3 questions:
How to change the default path where file_column plugin saves images,
so it will save them in a directory, which name is not image id, but
user id to which the image belongs to?
When user objects fails validation, but images were ok, i’d like to
display thumbnails of temporarly uploaded files by file_column, so that
user can see that they were acutally correctly uploaded. What is the
name of the variable in file_column that keeps path to the images and
how to access it from the view?
What is the best way to automatically delete files in the “tmp”
folder? It gets huge very quickly. I don’t think that scheduling
deleting of these files is good solution, because user could be filling
his form while tmp folder is being deleted. Maybe i could somehow add a
callback that it will delete temporary image if it was succesfully
saved? But how?
That’s all. Thanks in advance.
