I have released a kit which aims to make life a little easier for those of you who want to spruce up the SWFUpload interface with some style. An example using the tango desktop project theme:

  1. Looks great!
    I was actually trying make a comment on your article at the Bakery. Since that doesn’t seem to work, I’ll try it this way.

    In your article you made the following statement: “In my sample scenario above, I am only saving the file information itself. To get into setting up a HABTM relationship with another model in order to associate uploads with something else (users, pages, goats) would be a little over the top for this article. If there is a demand, I’ll gladly go over those procedures in subsequent articles.”

    I really would like to see those article(s). Or if it is too much work could you give me a few hints on how to do it.


  2. I’ll try to write the article regarding file uploads and HABTM relationships wihin the next week. Thanks for your interest.

  3. Nice job!!

    I’m trying to use this kit with CakePHP but I’m stuck with the “session” problem. I’ve done some google work and find that the problem is related to the useragent check. Looking the apache logs just after calling the upload action I’m forwarded to my login action.

    Can you give some advise on how to fix this issue?


  4. hiya,

    cheers mate!

  5. Hey James,

    Great stuff! I’m having some trouble implementing though… would I be able to pick your brain? πŸ™‚


  6. @ALL: you’ve probably moved on by now, and I apologize for not responding. I got lazy and dropped the ball on my web site for awhile, but I’m back now so I’d be happy to offer any assistance I can. Thanks for trying my software!

    @juan: sorry, man – I haven’t found a good solution to this yet.

    @aeshan: swfupload.swf should be in the same directory as the javascript: /cake/app/webroot/js/swfulpload/ is what I use. I’d be happy to help troubleshoot this if you still need help.

    @japh: sure!

  7. Hi James

    first, many, mnay thanks for your detailed tutorial on the bakery and your blog posts across the web(!) about this plugin uploader.

    I have got so far with the bakery tutorial (I happen to be using a old version of 1.2 but I think it is all OK).

    However, my form is just showing 2 links (as I am still using 1.0.2 SWFU) right now. So I Was looking to try your Condiments theme for the SWFU – but I get a 404 error on the URL. Would you beb able to email me it, or provide me with a link ?

    I am going to try and figuere out the basic UI myself anyway, but I thought I’d ask as there is no point re-inventing the wheel!


    Luke, Scotland.
