Uploading images for ads

Postby jelkimantis » Thu Sep 27, 2012 2:13 am


I'm working on a plugin to support our rolling banner ads for the journal, but I can't see where the API supports uploading of files for use in a plug-in. I want to be able to upload and delete images so that this plugin will automatically display those images in a one of three places on any given page. Any ideas? If something like this already exists, I will be happy to work with it.

As a side-note, the current ads plugin does not work for our purposes.

Hi jelkimantis,

you could look at how file uploads are handled in the journal management forms. Step 5 of the journal setup has a lot of file upload parts. You'll find that in /classes/manager/form/setup/JournalSetupStep5Form.inc.php and the associated template in /templates/manager/setup/step5.tpl.
There's an "uploadImage"-function in this JournalSetupStep5Form.inc.php that you might utilize for your needs.
