Upload Functionality

The Upload Page allows documents or images to be upload to the wiki. These uploads can then be displayed as an image or as a topic attachment. Executable files are not generally uploadable and permissions on the upload directories (if implemented as per documentation at LynxWikiInstallationNotes) ensure the directory does not have executable permissions.

If the user is logged in as a WikiAdmin, then the listing of the upload files will include an option to delete the uploaded file.

Future Capabilities

  1. The listing to show available uploads should be constrained to the first letter of the file name if desired
  2. Improvements to detecting executables in zip files
