Multi Upload

This feature allows you to upload multiple external files or images at a time. A new record is added to the database for each uploaded file.

Store file name only

Defines whether the full file path (e.g. external_data/uploaded_files/filename.ext) or only file name (e.g. filename.ext) is stored in the database after the uploading.

 

Replace file if exists

This option allows you to set whether the uploaded file will be saved or ignored in case a file with the same name already exists in the folder to upload.

data-show-preview="false"

 

Related events
