Questions answered by this recipe

How can I display the size of attached files?


Custom markup to get the file size of attached files

To install this recipe:

  • download Attach:AttachSize.phpΔ
  • copy it to your cookbook directory
  • add in your config.php or farmconfig.php this line:

To use, simply use this markup:

(:attachsize filename.ext:)


  • File sizes are all returned as the nearest whole number of KB, or the number of bytes below 1KB. It doesn't show MB, but then attachments are generally not that large anyway. Possible future enhancements could improve this.
  • Formatting is hard-coded.
