  • Click on the Attach link at the bottom of the page. The Attach screen lets you browse for a file, add a comment, and upload it. The uploaded file will show up in the File Attachment table.
    • NOTE: The topic must already exist. It is a two step process if you want to attach a file to a non-existing topic; first create the topic, then add the file attachment.

    • TWiki is capable of getting up to 10 files per upload session. Whether you can actually upload multiple files in one go from web user interface depends on skin.
 
    • Any type of file can be uploaded. Some files that might pose a security risk are renamed, ex: *.php files are renamed to *.php.txt so that no one can place code that would be read in a .php file.
    • The previous upload path is retained for convenience. In case you make some changes to the local file and want to upload it, again you can copy the previous upload path into the Local file field.
    • TWiki can limit the file size. This is defined by the %ATTACHFILESIZELIMIT% variable of the TWikiPreferences, currently set at 10000 KB.
Line: 151 to 152
 
    • To change the comment on an attachment, enter a new comment and then click Change properties. Note that the comment listed against the specific version will not change, however the comment displayed when viewing the topic does change.
    • To hide/unhide an attachment, enable the Hide file checkbox, then click Change properties.

File names

File systems tend to be liberal about characters used in file names. But there are characters which may cause problems if they are used in a file name of a TWiki attachment. As such, when TWiki saves an uploaded file attachment, it's saved as a file whose name is cleansed to avoid problems. Specifically:

  • Space are replaed by underscores
  • The .txt extension is appended to some filenames for security reasons
  • Characters such as ~, $, @, % are removed
  • Non-ASCII characters are deleted
When an attachment file name is altered by the process above, you are notified
 

Known Issues

  • Unlike topics, attachments are not locked during editing. As a workaround, you can change the comment to indicate an attachment file is being worked on - the comment on the specific version isn't lost, it's there when you list all versions of the attachment.

      • ALERT! It's not recommended to upload files greater than a few hundred K through a browser. Large files can be extremely slow-loading, and often time out. Use an FTP site for large file uploads.
  • Automatic attachments:
    • When enabled, all files in a topic's attachment directory are shown as attachments to the topic - even if they were directly copied to the directory and never attached by using an 'Attach' link. This is a convenient way to quickly "attach" files to a topic without uploading them one by one; although at the cost of losing audit trail and version control.

It is not possible to delete attached files with the current TWiki implementation. However, they can be moved to another topic. You may care to have a topic Trash.TrashAttachments - move attachments that are no longer wanted here.

It is not possible to delete attached files directly. You can delete a topic, and its attachments with it.
  • TIP One easy workaround is to create a Trash.TrashAttachments - then, simply move unwanted Attachments to that topic.

    3. Preview - %ATTACHURL text appears as: http://tyne.dl.ac.uk/twiki/pub/TWiki/FileAttachment/Sample.txt, a link.

  • To reference an attachment located in another topic, write text:

    1. Attach file: Sample.txt

  • To reference an attachment located in another topic, enter:
    • %PUBURL%/%WEB%/OtherTopic/Sample.txt (if it's within the same web)
    • %PUBURL%/Otherweb/OtherTopic/Sample.txt (if it's in a different web)
 
  • Attached HTML files and text files can be inlined in a topic. Example:

What Are Attachments Good For?

Added:
>
>
File Attachments can be used to create powerful groupware solutions - file sharing, document management - and for speedy Web authoring.
 

Document Management System

Changed:
<
<
  • document management system: distribution, revision
>
>
  • You can use Attachments to store and retrieve documents (in any format, with associated graphics, and other media files); attach documents to specific TWiki topics; collaborate on documents with full revision control; distribute documents on a need-to-know basis using; create a central reference library that's easy to access and manage by an entire user group.
 

File Sharing

Changed:
<
<
  • share files: applications, data files; recommended for light use
>
>
  • For file sharing, FileAttachments on a series of topics can be used to quickly create a well-documented, categorized digital download center for all types of files: documents; graphics and other media; drivers and patches; applications; anything you can safely upload!

Web Authoring

 
Changed:
<
<
  • on-site use: linking to graphics, docs
>
>
  • Through your Web browser, you can easily upload graphics (or sound files, or anything else you want to embed on a page) and place them anywhere in on a single page, or for use across a web, or site-wide.
    • NOTE: You can also add graphics - any files - directly, typically by FTP upload. This requires server access, and may be more convenient if a large number of files, or a particular directory location, is required. These files can't be managed using browser-based Attachment controls.

Each topic can have files attached to it. This is similar to an e-mail attachment. Just use your browser to upload or download a file.

  • To upload: Click on the Attach link at the bottom of each page. A form is shown where you can browse for a file and upload it. The uploaded file will show up in the FileAttachment table.

FileAttachment table

FileAttachment: Action: Size: Date: Who: Comment:
(attached file) (view, update, add) (file size) (upload date) (uploded by) (file comment)

Action is:

  • add: Add a new attachment.

Remarks

  • Once a file is attached it can be referenced in the topic by %ATTACHURL%/{filename} . Example:
  • GIF and JPG images can be attached and shown in the text like this:
    • Attach file: Smile.gif
    • Edit topic and write text: %ATTACHURL%/Smile.gif
    • Text is shown as: Smile.gif , i.e. it shows up as an image.
  • It is not possible to delete attached files with the current TWiki implementation. Contact if you need to delete files.
