On the contrary, I homebrewed file upload because I had issues with file_column. I probably wrote about 15 lines of code, most of them in the model. I'm willing to share, if anyone wants the code. Sean Cribbs Web Services - KCKCC >>> email@example.com 3/29/2006 12:00 PM >>> Google for the file_column plugin. It handles many of the minutae like figuring out where in the filesystem to store the files, handling the form field gracefully when it comes to updating the database record that references it, etc., all through a one-line declaration in the model and a string (varchar) field for the filename. And if they're image files, it's got hooks into RMagick, ImageMagick, etc. for creating and caching resized and otherwise processed versions of the image. Not perfect but applicable to most situations and a whole lot easier than reinventing the wheel.

I'd be interested to see it, but why not post the code to Snippets? David http://www.bigbold.com/snippets/

if you wouldn't mind that would be great
