The principle

As many Wikka users, I find the upload process cumbersome. So I propose a new way relying on 3 developments and a few principles.
  1. There will be a menulet action in the header and/or footer menus that will allow the user to:
    • know if there are files attached to the current page (special display of the menulet link)
    • browse the attached files by clicking on the menulet link
    • manage the attachments (add/delete)
  2. If you are allowed to read a page then you can read/download the attached files
  3. If you are allowed to write a page then you can manage the attachments (add/delete)
Of course all this has to be compliant with the site policy (authorized mimes and maximum sizes).

or by using a menulet link which is the easier solution for the users:
{{attachements}} has to be part of the menu, header, footer or any kind of personnal menus.

Once called, a form will appear that will allow:

A warning popup prior to delete a file would be welcome...
