distinction of files module and new file link


RedmineFiles

Introduction

Files can be added just about anywhere in the Remdine system you see a "New File" link at the bottom of the page.

There is also a Files module for each project. From that tab new files are added via the New File button in the upper right hand corner.

Usage

Inline Images

Attached files can be shown within the parent page by targeting it's name via image url (i.e. !attached_image!).

Non plain text files

Keep in mind there is a RedmineDocuments module for storing technical and user documentation that can be linked via the wiki.

However, if that doesn't fit the bill, file upload support provides a way to distribute any file for user download.

File storage

All uploaded files are stored at the /{install dir}/files directory.

The uploaded file name is prefixed with a unique id based on it's parent for directory storage. Multiple files can be uploaded with the same name, however a link within the wiki will only show the most recently uploaded one.

Attach files form

Regardless where a file is added, the input form is as shown below. Adding multiple files at once is possible using the "Add another file" link.

The optional description is used for an alt text if the image is shown using !image_url! within the parent.

Upload file input form

Files Module

Each project can have a files module enabled/disabled via the settings menu.

A sortable HTML table shows the details on the uploaded files. Of note are the MD5 hash, and D/L(Download Count).

Files added via "New File"

At the bottom of many of the pages in Redmine is a "New File" link. Attaching a file makes that page the parent of the file and it is limited in scope to that page.

See the Usage section for more information.
