Preserves the directory structure of uploaded files (4.40 KB, patch)
2007-01-09 02:24 UTC, Luis Zarrabeitia

Description Luis Zarrabeitia 2007-01-09 02:18:06 UTC
This may be considered a duplicate of request 3336, "use directory structure for
file uploads" (closed as "wontfix" on 2005-09-06). I'm posting it as a new one
because I don't know if it is acceptable to reopen a closed bug.

I'm interested on having the ability of uploading files to different
subdirectories (preserve the directory structure), i.e, to be able to upload
[[Image:/dir1/image.png]] and [[Image:/dir2/image.png]]. The current behavior is
that the image gets uploaded as Image.png, and none of those links work. My
proposal is to create the directories as needed, so they'll both work and point
to different images.

Advantage: on some situations, there is conflict with the filenames. For
instance, on my university, two professors cannot upload a
[[Media:Conference1.pdf]]. This proposal would allow them to upload a
[[Media:class1/Conference1.pdf]] and [[Media:class2/Conference1.pdf]] and solve
the conflict.

Disadvantages: I don't know - yet.

I wrote a patch that implements this. I hope I can attach it to this thread
after I submit it. Please look at the commented section that asks "Why is this
here?". I couldn't figure out if it was required because of security concerns.

Generally you should make your arguments in the closed bug and let the devs decide whether to reopen.  If 
you really want to you can reopen it yourself, but don't be surprised if it's reclosed quite quickly.

Note that you can simply name them 'Class1 - Conference1.pdf' etc.

Created attachment 3036 [details]
Preserves the directory structure of uploaded files

It applies against mediawiki 1.6 and 1.9 (svn). Please check the commented
section with the notice "Why is this here?" as I didn't manage to find out the
answer. This patch is the only reason why I reposted a "wontfix".
Comment 4 Luis Zarrabeitia 2007-01-09 02:25:12 UTC
Oops, sorry. That was quick.
I'll post it back there, then.
