upload-resize-send link

upload-resize-send link

I want to upload image(s), resize them, and then send link to the file(s) on the server. Everything works except I can't figure out how to send the link in UE (4.01) to the uploaded files (I have 3 upload file fields). I would prefer not to have to set up a database for it to work.

The files are sent in the email if I don't resize them and if I set the form to resize them, the files get resized as expected on the server.

When you add the Upload File server behavior to your page, a new binding group is created on the bindings page called "Uplaoded Files(<Name of File Field>)" where <Name of File Field> is the name of the file form element. a separate binding group will be created for each file form element.

In the Uploaded Files(<Name of File Field>) binding group, there is a binding for server file name.

Also, if you have set the Upload File to create multiple copies of the file on the server, there will be separate bindings fro each copy. Each of the seperate binding will be preceded by the upload folder name for that copy.


you can use these bindings to create the link to the file in the email, for example, the code produced by the server file name binding will look similar to:

php:
<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>



you use this to create the file link:

php:
<a href="http://www.mydomian.com/path/to/file/<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>"><?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?></a>

Not quite

Your code makes perfect sense... if I could find that code somewhere.

In the waue_for_1.php file, I did find:
//Attachment Entries
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] ."");

But in the form.php file (where I'm using UE), the code is missing. I do see the code while I'm configuring the email attachments but when I click Finish, that code doesn't get written.

Here's what's written after configuring an upload w/file resize and then creating an email message with UE and following your instructions:

<?php require_once("../webassist/file_manipulation/helperphp.php"); ?>
<?php
// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "images/",
'FileName' => "[FileName]",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "2",
'ResizeWidth' => "800",
'ResizeHeight' => "120",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End
?>
<?php?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "upload1", "2", "[NewFileName]_[Increment]", "JPG:80", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}
?>
<?php require_once("../webassist/email/mail_php.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../webassist/email/mailformatting_php.php"); ?>
<?php
if (!isset($_SESSION))session_start();

in the In the waue_for_1.php file try changing:

php:
//Attachment Entries

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"".$WA_DFP_Uploa dStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] ."");



to:

php:
//Attachment Entries

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_Uploa dStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] ."");

That sends the image as an attachment - not the link.

I then tried wrapping your code with the href tag but it didn't work:

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"<a href='http://www.mydomian.com/path/to/file/".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] . "'>" .$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] . "</a>");

if you want it to be a link, then add the following in the email message:
<a href="http://www.mydomian.com/path/to/file/<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>"><?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?></a>

the meial message is created in the waue_for_1.php file.

My bad...
I posted the wrong href wrap code - should have been:

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"<a href=".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverDirectory"]."".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] . ">" .$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"] . "</a>");

It still doesn't work...

that href will not work, and the href should not be in the WAUE_AddAttachment function.


it will need to be in the email, and the correct href code is:



<a href="http://www.mydomian.com/path/to/file/<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>"><?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?></a>

So... the missing piece of information seems to be that while you're creating the email in UE, you have to create a custom email to make this work. You can NOT use UE's prebuilt templates! (at least I could not get the templates to work with your code - after hours of trying).

Hmmm, not sure why the file name is not available to the template page,


Here's a workaround for using the template though:


the code to upload the file is:

php:
<?php

WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct
("WA_UploadResult1") ;
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1""upload1""2""[NewFileName]_[Increment]""JPG:80"$WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}
?>





you can change that to store the file name in a session:

php:
<?php

WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct
("WA_UploadResult1") ;
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1""upload1""2""[NewFileName]_[Increment]""JPG:80"$WA_UploadResult1_Params);
$_SESSION['fileName'] = $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"];
}
?>




then use the session in the link:

php:
<?php if(!session_id()) session_start(); ?>

<a href="http://www.mydomian.com/path/to/file/<?php echo $_SESSION['fileName'] ; ?>"><?php echo $_SESSION['fileName'] ; ?></a>
