Questions answered by this recipe

This section is optional; use it to indicate the types of questions (if any) this recipe is intended to answer.

  • How can I change the way the uploads form displays? I need a different header, footer, look, etc...


Use a page (Site.UploadForm) to format the uploads form.


  1. Download upform.phpΔ and place it in the cookbook directory
  2. Include the following in your config.php:
    if ($action == 'upload')

Assuming you want to use a given page as your upload form, create Site.UploadForm, probably using some variation of the following:

(:div id='wikiupload':)
!! $[Attachments for] {$FullName}%h2%
!!!$UploadResult %h3%
(:input form action='{$PageUrl}' method='post' enctype="multipart/form-data":)
(:input hidden name='n' value='{$FullName}':)
(:input hidden name='action' value='postupload':)
|| $[File to upload:]||(:input file name=uploadfile:) ||
|| $[Name attachment as:]||(:input text name=upname value="$UploadName":) (:input submit value=' $[Upload] ':) ||

(:include $[{$SiteGroup}/UploadQuickReference]:)

This form (as it appears above) is pretty identical to the standard form used in pmwiki uploads. Modify as needed...


If for some reason you need the page to be different you can set the variable $UpformPage (default is Site.UploadForm)
