    add file upload to product Link to this post


    I am building an e-commerce site that would require the ability to upload an image from a customer's computer to a product. Is this possible, and where would I start?

    Any advice would be appreciated as it is my first e-commerce site and I am building it for a friend as a favor and I really don't want to learn drupal or joomla to make this happen.

    @maryfran: to do this you'll need to understand how to "Decorate" dataobjects, how to build forms in SS, and also how to edit .ss templates.
    You'll want to decorate Product with an ImageUploadForm that uploads the customer image to the product.

    If you want 'many' images for one product, you'll probably want to decorate Product with "many_many" CustomerImages.

    Following the SS tutorials may be a good place to start: http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/tutorials
