HTML5 PHP File Upload for Dreamweaver
HTML5 PHP File Upload is a Dreamweaver extension designed to allow users upload files to your web server.
- Upload multiple files at the same time
Select multiple files from the "Browse for files" dialog.
- Drag and Drop capability
Users can drag multiple files from desktop directly into the web browser.
- Progress and error tracking
At the time of upload a progress bar is displayed for each file.
If a file fails to upload, an error message is displayed for that particular file. You will have choice of a success message or redirect to a URL once all the files have been uploaded successfully.
- Thumbnail Preview
Interface will display file names as well as thumbnails of the selected files (for image file types) or file extension in place of thumbnail (for other types).
- Restrict file size and type (allowed file extensions)
You will be able to restrict the size and type of uploaded files. User will not be able to select files of disallowed size and type.
- Resizing and file size compression
If the uploaded files are images (JPEG format only) they can be resized and compressed.
You can specify dimensions and the compression rate of the uploaded images. Thumbnails can be created for each of those images as well.
Uploaded files and thumbnails can be renamed by adding prefix, suffix and/or a date stamp.
- Storing upload information in the database
You can provide the ability to annotate each file by simply adding appropriate form fields (one or as many as you need) to the uploader interface in Dreamweaver. The entered data will be sent to the server for each file individually. Any of the fields can be set as "required" and a user will not be able to upload the files unless the information is filled out. Dreamweaver Insert Record can be used to create a record for each uploaded file. User input can be validated using approach of your choice: HTML 5 validation, Spry validation or Dreamweaver Validate Form Behavior.
Compatible with Dreamweaver PHP (MySQL) Server Model only.
The extension comes with a easy-to-follow manual with videos. Extension dialog contains Help hints to assist with quick setup.
