How to extend composer form with file input via plugin


(Alexander Randa) #1

Hello,

I try to implement availability to setup topic image (this is primary image and it will displayed in topics list, show, etc)
I write plugin, and add file-type field (similarly to GitHub - discourse/discourse-tagging: Tagging functionality for Discourse Forums)

But I have problem: when I add file via input, file caught by composer file uploader:

Perhaps exists some ability to change this workflow via plugin?

What exactly are you trying to achieve? As Discourse already accepts attachments to posts…

@cpradio Yes, I know about post images.
But I need to implement topic image (not post). Also this image will be processed with some special workflow. And will be showed on topics list, in emails, etc.

Topics already have an image_url field that is set to the first image in the first post, if any.
