Hello FireMe!

Thanks to your request for help, I have got the Add Resource button working on the CMS but can you please tell me what you need to add to the page template to display the upload resource files.

I have also added $Resources on the page.ss below $Content

The resource files uploaded names get displayed on the front end but links directly to the root of the site.

How can you make it display the correct link to file on the server, the file date and the size of the file?

Thanks for your help.

hi ulysses

this is my resource page template

<h1>Forms</h1>
<% control FilterForms %>
<div id="downloads">
<h3>$Name</h3>
<p>$Description</p>
<p><b>Category:</b> $Category <b>File type:</b> $Attachment.FileType <b>File Size:</b> $Attachment.Size <b>Download:</b> <a href="$Attachment.URL">$Name</a>
</div>
<% end_control %>

<h1>Videos</h1>

<% control FilterVideos %>
<div id="downloads">
<h3>$Name</h3>
<p>$Description</p>
<p><b>Category:</b> $Category <b>File type:</b> $Attachment.FileType <b>File Size:</b> $Attachment.Size <b>Download:</b> <a href="$Attachment.URL">$Name</a>
</div>
<% end_control %>

so the main ones for calling are

$Attachment

so you would just add .FileType or .size .URL for link

$Attachment.FileType $Attachment.Size <a href="$Attachment.URL">$Name</a>

plus there is

$Category $Description $Name

for calling the category description and name of the file

hope this helps

Hi FireMe,

Thanks for that info. Can you please advise where I insert this code. Fairly new to this.

I have the files Resource.php & ResourcePage.php in the /mysite/code/ folder.

I can email you my files. My email is mauricio@ulysses.co.nz

you need to add something like this too your ResourcePage.php controller

class ResourcePage_Controller extends Page_Controller
{
function MyFileObjects()
   {
      $filter = Director::urlParam('Action');
      return $filter ? $this->Resources("Category = '$filter'") : $this->Resources();
   }
}

then you need to create a ResourcePage.ss and put in your themes folder under templates > layout

some thing like this

<% control MyFileObjects %>
<div id="downloads">
<h3>$Name</h3>
<p>$Description</p>
<p><b>Category:</b> $Category <b>File type:</b> $Attachment.FileType <b>File Size:</b> $Attachment.Size <b>Download:</b> <a href="$Attachment.URL">$Name</a>
</div>
<% end_control %>

i think you would just have to a date field to your array on your Resource.php

<?php
class Resource extends DataObject
{
   static $db = array (
      'Name' => 'Text',
'Date' => 'Date',
      'Description' => 'Text',
      'Category' => "Enum('Forms, Videos')"
   );
   
   static $has_one = array (
      'Attachment' => 'File',
      'ResourcePage' => 'ResourcePage'
   );
   
   public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
   {
      return new FieldSet(
         new TextField('Name'),
new CalendarDateField('Date'),
new TextareaField('Description'),
         new DropdownField('Category','Category', singleton('Resource')->dbObject('Category')->enumValues()),
         new FileIFrameField('Attachment')
      );
   }
}
?>

but im not to sure about this, best to ask uncle cheese!
