I didn't look at the code (yet), but I like its output - maybe there are a
few logical and usabitlity/display problems in the GUI, but I am sure they
can be solved. Good work, Klavs.

I would like it more (or better, its a must-be), if you can solve it as a
<plugin ...>, instead of a some-wiki-syntax .. I suppose, if you are willing
to do a small rewrite and your code fits the coding style .. then you are
surely a king to all coWiki users, me myself and I included ;)

Excellent, keep on working on this issue!

I see a problem arising here: maybe you, Klavs, could get in touch with John
Hogenmiller, who is one of the maintainers of the project. The problem that
I see is, that the CVS repository is broken at present and we couldn't
intergrate your code into it, until it's cleaned.

Please do not disappoint me, Klavs :) I am looking forward to your
functionatlity in coWiki.

regards dtg

P.S. John ...? :)

Thanks for your effort on this. It will be a day or two before I can
get to it, so I hope you can wait just a bit. Also, I notice that the
URL you've given just points back to www.cowiki.org, so there's nothing
to look at...

Now, I have been working on the attachment-issue for some time.

Please take a look at my demosite of a patched coWiki 0.4.0-interim
(September 23 2005) <http://www.cowiki.org/>which implements uploading
of attachments and images and also embedding of images and pdf-previews.

The syntax for embedding images are compatible with MediaWikis.

Message My approach is to store the binary content in the database, - primarily
to make backup easier.

The upload should be easy to implement.

The download should be authorized by the cookie allready sat by the main
webside (I guess we can assume that this allways works if you download
or view images from the browser)

A list of mime-types should determine if the attacment is default showed
inline, and this should be editable in the editor by i.e <plugin
attachment inline name="mypicture.jpg">. Another way round is to include
the possiblilty in <plugin embed>

The attachments will automaticaly be associated to the mother wikipage,
and inherits the motherdocuments groups, owner and privileges.
The associations between wikipage and attachment is maintained in a
seperate table.

When a new version of the document is created, a new set of associations
is created (12 rows if 12 attachments, and no new uploaded and none is
deleted) - this might introduce some redundance, but is simpler to
implement i guess.

The above is version 1 - that is what is my primary priority.


Next version could introduce an attachment-browser, allowing you to
create associations in new wikipages to attachmenets allready stored
(and you have privileges to view) and possibility to show thumbnails of
standard web-images.

Third version should index pdf-documents and show thumbnail of
pdf-documents first page. (if proper software is installed on the server)

Fourth version might use OpenOffice to do the same thing with MS-Word
and other ooo-compatible documents

Message Hi Klavs--

I'm sorry, I had missed your post somehow. I too would like a way to
upload documents and graphics-- It's one of the features I want in the
next release. I am realizing that there are other workarounds, but they
are difficult to set up...

Do you have any thoughts?

Message hello devolopers

I think coWiki is indeed very suitable for the community-network I'm
working for. But I really need attachments integrated into the wiki.

There was a thread in March about this subject. Was there any coding
done i relation to this issue?

As I want to code this enhancement to coWiki as quickly as possible,
please share any draft code or any further thoughts concerning this issue.
