How to find the uploaded file in a filetype field?

9 years 4 months ago #135684 by wgary
I am using the filetype field plugin to provide a field to upload a file during the registration process. This is working fine.

But I want to retrieve this file automaticaly from the webserver. How can I identify the directory where the file will be stored? The filename is stored in the field, but it seams that the directory is depending on the date/time?

Is is configurable to change the directory to just one directory and add a timestamp to the filename?

I havent found any documentation..
best regards

The directory at which the File fieldtype plugin stores uploads to is images/comprofiler/plug_cbfilefield/USER_ID.

Will the plugin allow me upload one or more PDF file per profile?

The plugin will allow you to create one or more CB file fields. Each such file field will allow one file upload per profile.
