Has anyone found or used something that can organize uploaded files into folders that the user can click to open and view the files (uploads) in that folder.  The reason I ask is I have a client that upload meeting minutes to a page.  Over the years, it's just one long list of file links.  They would like it to be organized by at lease each year's minutes instead of one long list.

I know there are things our there, but I would like to keep it integrated with CMS Builder for managing the uploads.

Hi Phil,

I've been using RoyslSlider for managing my photo albums with CMSB.

Here's a recipe in the CMSB CookBook that describes the code necessary for that implementation.

Instead of putting the images in different folders, I created records in a multi record editor for each photo group and upload all the images for that group.

I display the groupsbased on the code in this recipe:

I suppose you could use one of the info fields to identify which group (year) an image belongs to and sort them that way, to eliminate re-uploading all the images

Hope that gives you some ideas,

Thanks for the suggestion.  Based on what you shared, I may try the multi record editor and then use Bootstrap Accordions to group the years for the uploads.

Sure.  It may be a while as I have some other projects, but I'll post what I did and how.

Hi Phil,

If I am understanding correctly (my favorite phrase before answering my spouse's questions), you could provide pre-determined searches and attach them to buttons/links on the html/php pages.  For example, I have a client that has a LOT of faq pages. These faqs do have different audiences and different categories. So a pre-determined search for faqs created for doctors (audience is #2) might have the url of

and clicking on the link/button brings up the faqs only relegated to that audience.  I hope that helps in some way. It saves my clients a lot of hassle and uses cmsb's built-in functionality without customized solutions.
