Yeah, there were a few hacks to the system, and file uploads were one, payments were another. The code is overly complex, and far from robust. I've been removing it as I go along by rewriting segments of the modules. I figure I can add it back in, in a more well thought out manner later.

Maybe in the next update, it will be simplified.

I've been writing my own "VIEWALBE" type routines, using the prototype for "VIEWABLE"

This is something I actually talked with Alex about 3 or 4 years ago, but is a more modern, oop method of doing it.

If you take the concept of what VIEWABLE does, and apply it to a set of configuration flags, you create your own criteria for what is or is not allowed to display for a link (or any attached tables). The "payments enabled" should be part of the VIEWABLE process, not in other parts of the templates (except the user and management areas).

This would allow changes to a single routine to be used by the search (database select) system to apply across the whole system in a manner similar to the concept of "hooks."

Maybe in a future release.
