Howdy folks,

There's been a feature I have long wanted for the "Uploads" field, that would allow me to assign "checkbox" functions to the upload field. I'm hoping someone here may have a solution or suggestion they can share. Please see the attached images for examples of what I am trying to achieve.

Overview: The need for this is primarily related to website slideshows, and the need for me to specify if I want the upload's "title" and "caption" to align left, right or center in the slideshow - on a per-slide basis. For example slide one may have the text aligned left, and the second slide has text aligned center, and the third with text aligned right.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Hi Zicky,

For something like this where more complex info needs to be assigned to an upload, I would recommend using a "Related Records" section to define your slides, where each record details a single image upload. That way you have full control over the fields being used and are no longer limited to just 4 pieces of information.

Let me know if you have any questions about how to set something like this up!

Hey Daniel,

Thank you for the feedback. What you recommended is something I considered, but I decided to just hire you guys to build me a plugin for this - which is in development now. : )

Hey Codee,

Thanks for the feedback. I ended up hiring Interactive Tools to build me a plugin to accomplish all the task I needed the uploader fields to deliver on a per/image basis. The plugin they created for me works really great and does more than I requested... bringing additional features to the plate such as the ability to activate a WYSIWYG editor on a per/image basis as well.

There are some great suggestions in this thread that I seriously considered, but in the end - there needed to be many possible options available on a per/image basis - all of which the client would determine at the time they would upload their photos. Thus the need for a plugin.

Cheers, Mickey

HI Mikey,

Is this a completely private plugin or one you would want to share or resell? That kind of functionality could bring CMSB a new level of performance.

I hired InteractiveTools to built the plugin for me to fit the particular needs for a website I am building. So I would recommend reaching out to InteractiveTools directly and ask them what the cost would be.
