A quick question… Are there any known issues to take into account when using this plugin together with Gerhard’s glz_custom_fields?

I’m always using both and never had a problem

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] upm_file: Associate single or multiple files with an article.

Thought I’d post it in this forum because I am using upm_file. However, if it doesn’t belong here, I will post somewhere else.

I am trying to figure out a way to display a thumbnail preview (not an icon) on-the-fly of the first page of pdf files in my upm file list for an article. I found some php that might be able to take a file and use image magick to make it into a jpg. My main question here is, how do I pick out each file name using php $GLOBALS?

I will be using this code in my files form and, since it will be inside <txp:php> tags, I can’t use <txp:file_download_name /> to get the name of the file. Thanks in advance for any hints or suggestions!

<txp:php>
$file = $GLOBALS ???how to get the filename here???
the rest of the code here for converting to a jpg thumbnail...
</txp:php>

I can’t use <txp:file_download_name /> to get the name of the file.

Why not? If you are inside a file_download_list form, or something that will serve for it, and inside txp:php tags, file_download_name(); should return that name. If you are not inside a file list form and function there won’t be any dynamic source for that value however.

Thanks rsilletti, I didn’t realize it was that simple. I will give it a try!

This is true if you use the default custom fields (1 to 10).
Can be fixed?

Hi,
actually you are perfectly right: if you use a cf beyond 10 upm_file won’t work.
I myself had this issue once and I had to change the ‘files’ cf to one below 10.
It was a nightmare ;-)
…but this solved the question.

wornout, almost at the bottom of the file there’s an array, around line 536. Try adding your cf’s no. and see if it breaks anything.
