Description: An upload improvement would be great.

the ability to specify more details for an attachment like:

  • author
  • date
  • version (if the file was updated)
  • rights (is the attachment under GPL, CC for ex.)

This sound's like the wikimedia Commons, but I think this are some really important features missing using the pmwiki upload function.

If meta data plays an important role, one could perhaps use the WikiForms recipe for upload management. With regard to version information, there's also the EnableUploadVersions (which admittedly keeps the complete files instead of merely storing version information). Just some links in case they might prove interesting for you ... --Henning June 15, 2006, at 08:29 AM

Some of this information (who uploaded, when, what versions exist) is available via Cookbook.RecentUploadsLog and Cookbook.Attachtable. Anything more starts to require somehow attaching and managing meta information related to each file, which is not a straightforward task... —Eemeli Aro April 20, 2009, at 04:00 PM
