The 'file' field type

This lets the user upload files directly from the data form. It is displayed as a link to the file.

Files are not uploaded to the same page. Instead, a separate page is created for each file in a different category, 'file' by default, with the pagename being the name of the image.

    type: file
    label: Upload document
    category: alternative-category

The specific properties you can use on a file field:

  • category: specifies the category that the page will be created in ('file' category if not specified), and the uploaded file is attached to this page.

Note that images won't be treated like they are when attaching an image to simple (i.e. non-data form enabled) page. This means they won't be displayed by the [[gallery]] tag.
