Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on March 24, 2010 01:39 AM
for the past few weeks i've been coding the replacement to the public uploader (http://www.thebackalleys.com/ok/public). i think that it is now ready for a public beta where all members can test it.

this is your new place to upload files (http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump). enjoy!

new features include:it's not done yet (hence it being in beta), and i plan to add finishing touches (renaming files & a progress bar specifically). if you have any suggestions or run into a bug, explain what happened and i will fix it.

now that this is open to all members, i've ditched the forum's file attachment system and have replaced it with an "upload and embed" button you'll see underneath the post box to the left. for now it takes you to a new tab, but in the future i hope to make it more direct. once you upload a file, you can click on it in your file list to get an embed tag to put here.

this also allows for a long overdue feature - actual embedding of mp3 audio in a small flash player! using the [ mp3 ] bbcode tag you can now make a player widget for any mp3 audio file. the [ flv ] bbcode tag also allows you to embed flv, h.264 or mp4 videos. i may add wmv in the future as well.

++

here are some demos of the new tags:

Post by: rtil on April 6, 2010 12:34 AM
just a note to anyone using this , i am making some changes over the next couple of days, so please excuse the mess. there is a problem with folder selection on upload not working, and i\\\'m replacing the unfinished file renaming feature with an option to select multiple files for folder move or delete actions. i\\\'d ideally also like to replace the 5-file uploader with an ajax uploader so the page doesn\\\'t have to reload, but we\\\'ll see how that goes as it\\\'s a little more of an advanced feature and i want to avoid using flash for it

i\\\'ll also be getting rid of the 100 file limit

Post by: rtil on April 7, 2010 08:01 AM
the file upload tool is not working at the moment. i'm replacing it with one with a progress bar and a new file uploader will appear underneath it while a file is uploading. if i can't finish it by today i will put the old one back in so you can use it until i figure out how to implement the new one
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on April 14, 2010 08:36 PM
last night i finished the checkbox options for tagging multiple files for deletion or file moving. this only works on the home page right now. i have yet to add the functionality for files in folders, so sorry about that for now.

just click the box on the left of any file to check it, and a menu will pop up at the bottom of the file list with options for moving all the files you have checked to an existing folder or if you want to delete them. a confirmation box will come up.

http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump/ (http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump/)

there's still a bug when you upload files where if you tag them with a folder it won't put them in the folder. i will try to fix it tonight.

i also found out i can't really have an ajax progress bar without using flash on shared hosting.. i need a php plugin that i can't install without my own server. so the uploader is going to work the way it is now until i move to VPS, which will hopefully be sometime this year.

I tried to upload two song files and neither of them uploaded. FYI, they are both 20+ MB in size because they're 11+ minute songs in high quality.

Edit-

The file names are "Reverend Bizarre - In the Rectory (MP3 320)" and "Yes - Heart of the Sunrise (MP3 V0)."

Post by: rtil on May 19, 2010 10:54 PM
max filesize limit is 10mb, sorry.

actually , i just checked and it\\\'s 20. maybe you were a bit over the limit. try uploading them one at a time.
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: W.A.C. on May 20, 2010 12:50 AM
I didn't know there was a 20 MB limit. Since we're allowed to upload up to 1 GB, is it possible if the 20 MB limit is increased?
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on May 20, 2010 12:58 AM
yes i can raise it. i just figured nobody would be needing to upload a file larger than 20mb
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: W.A.C. on May 20, 2010 09:15 PM
What's the new limit?
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on May 20, 2010 09:18 PM
25. just upload them one at a time or something
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options

My 21.4 MB file titled "Yes - Heart of the Sunrise (MP3 V0)" still isn't uploading.

The page just acts as if I never tried upload anything.
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on May 20, 2010 10:29 PM
i'll check the script when i make some planned changes to the uploader later on. i don't know why it's doing that. i was able to upload a 10mb file, but not a 23mb file. it would really help if there was a progress bar, but unfortunately my shared hosting doesnt allow me to add a php extension i need to code one, and i don't want to change the uploader to being flash based.
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on May 23, 2010 02:02 PM
i will be making some changes today. file uploads will work but please excuse any bugs until i add the new features
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on May 24, 2010 01:30 AM
two new features that should save a lot of timebugfixes:please let me know of any bugs or features you'd like to see

i raised the timeout to 60 seconds on the upload page.. hopefully that should be long enough for those of you who need to upload larger files.

dunno what to tell ya wac. if you need to upload a large file just go to megaupload or something
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on June 18, 2010 02:48 AM
ok, tonight i finally got around to the last big part of the file uploader. now you can view other people's file dump pages. to see what one looks like, here's mine (http://thebackalleys.com/dump/viewer.php?u=1). to get to someone's file dump page, go to their forum profile, and click on the "file dump" link on the left sidebar.
(http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump/files/1/6857aJ_fd.PNG)

so now those privacy locks ((http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump/images/lock_none.png)/(http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump/images/lock.png)) actually mean something - if you don't want people to see a certain file or folder, lock it!

you can't lock folders yet, but i will add that tomorrow. and you can still lock files inside a folder anyway.

the uploader now runs on a blacklist instead of a whitelist. basically what this means is you can upload any file type you want so long as it's not on the blacklist. some of the banned filetypes are typical ones like exe, bat, com and so on. if there isn't an icon for a file you upload, let me know and i'll make one.

Can you show us the list of stuff that's blacklisted?

Dose the uploader support .zip, .rar, .7z or other compressed folders?
Title: filedump public beta & new forum embed options
Post by: rtil on September 18, 2010 04:35 PM
if by supports you mean can you upload them, yes. other than that, it will just link you to a download
