It would be nice to be able to upload (or attach) files to a forum message.

Any news on this? Any thoughts on the architecture/structure? I suppose you'd want a table with the following fields:

  • blob (attachment)
  • post id (foreign key)
  • number of times downloaded


  • An upload/attach button in the post form and just a servlet to handle any upload event (using commons-upload) or download request (for checking permissions).

    What would be the best way to display them? I suppose just at the bottom (with download count). Though to be fancy you could have some BBcode to allow it to be embedded in the posting

    Anyone looking into this? I may have a go if I get the time otherwise.

    cheers,

    Mike.

    please, could we have file upload? That would be so great!!
    This is the biggest lack in the system so far for me!

    in apache.org, they provide a component that allows you to do file upload. then store it in a blob.

    Sorry, can anyone explains to me why they find an add-attachment feature is useful? I feel this feature will overload the server easily when the attachment's size is large.

    Well, you can limit the upload limit or even do not allow it at all, if needed.

    File attachments may be useful in many cases, like when you have a forum to contributors post her enhacements / mods to something ( like new templates, images, documents etc ).

    Yes, it's done. The code is available in the CVS. The next version, 2.1, will ship with file attachments.
