I am trying to figure out a way for users to upload straight from the content page when they link. This way they don't have to switch tabs. I know other CMS systems use with the FCKeditor and TinyMCE. What would I need to do to get this in Silverstripe? Can it be done?
Also, if we have users set with LDAP and logged in, is there a way to script their user account straight to a folder in assets with their name on it?
(I am going to have lots and lots of users who will be using the subsites.)
On the first one: TinyMCE comes bundled with SilverStripe (it's the actual editor you see in the backend).
If you would like to modify the functionality of TinyMCE these links might help:
If you need a separate upload-field, you can simply add it with:
new ImageField("myImage","My Image Field")
This will add the field below the editor.
On the second one: I don't exactly know; I have no experience with this.
But after reading this article: [url]http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=modules:external-authentication[/url]
I guess you have to get the username from the member-table.
Next digg into onBeforeWrite to learn how to automatically create a folder with their name on it
Then you have to figure out a way to link all ImageFields/FileFields automatically to the folder of the logged in-user - you might have to extend FileField and/or it's subclasses for that.
Please look into UncleCheese's ImageGallery-module to get a clue about automatically creating and opening specific assets-folders.
Finally: post back to the forums to tell us what you did (or even better: write a recipe, post it here: [url]http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=modules:external-authentication[/url] and/or here: [url]http://ssbits.com/[/url] and of course tell us about your post on the forums)
