Custom Uploads?

  1. I need to know if it's possible to setup per user upload folders.

    Or if this is a feature I can pay extra to have added?

    For example, If user XYZ uploads a PDF it gets put in /uploads/xyz/xyz.pdf
    and if user ZYX uploads a PDF it gets put in /uploads/zxy/zxy.pdf

    I would need it to automatically rename the file so that the file name in the users folder never changes and save over the old file when a new one is added.

    Is it possible? I would be willing to pay a for a developers license + extra for something like this.

    Thanks!

    Please let me know!

  2. This isn't a built in feature, the only way this could be implemented is as a customization and the problem with that is there are no hooks that could be used to make this possible without changing core plugin code. The problem with changing core plugin code is it makes it difficult for you to upgrade when we release updates.

    There is a hook to change the file upload path, but it is executed per form. It wouldn't be able to change the upload path per user submitting the form.

    We don't do customizations and we don't to paid feature enhancements. If you wanted to customize the plugin you would have to hire a developer to do so. As I mentioned above I don't recommend changing core code because it makes upgrading difficult and it makes providing support difficult as we don't provide support for customizations.
