I missed the window last night. I'm hitting some problems with hooking to the plug-in.

But, if you look at the demo URL http://postcards.com/...est/test_upload.html that is using the plug-in configuration, and mostly links calls now. It's just running as an external script, rather than hooked into the upload routines. Once I get that working/figured out, it's only a matter of a few hours to cut/paste in the working code, and make sure it all works as a plug in.

All the parts are working. It's just a matter of making them work together via the hooks/plug-in.

Since this upload-file upload/graphic is the most requested thing, I'll have it separated out from the other scripts so that you can just add this in, rather than all the photo/image processing stuff.

Basically, it will let you attach one file to the link record, either a text or binary file. No image processing on this, but that means it also requires no extra modules to be loaded from CPAN. It will be a simple plug-in and go.

If it's possible to add hooks-to-hooks (chaining plugins) (Alex?) I can leave in a branch to "If ascii ... do" and "if binary do.." that will allow you/others to add specific processing options to the uploaded files based on type, or size, or whatever.

As part of the basic package, I will try to tie it in to being designed as a "logo" mod, with the features that go along with that, as well as a "priority" flag. Since all this is related. As people use it, and I develop the larger programs, I can probably get this expanded to handle an unlimited number of attachments. I have some ideas how to differentiate between text (a link) and a graphic (thumbnail/link, or display).

Would $50 with free upgrades be unreasonable? Since it's a defined set of functions, once it's finished, only bug fixes, version upgrades, and such need to be added. The feature set stays pretty much the same. Unlike the gallery/post mod, which can keep growing forever, so upgrade fees are reasonable.

You know my code/mods are pretty complete :) They sort of handle all eventualities, so you know when I'm done it's going to "do it all" <G>
