FileField provides a universal file upload field for CCK. It is a robust alternative to core's Upload module and an absolute must for users uploading a large number of files. Great for managing video and audio files for podcasts on your own site.


  • Configurable upload paths allow you to save files into per-field or per-user directories

  • Per-field and per-node file size limits
  • Extensive API for extending field widgets and managing files
  • Full revision/translation file management
  • Views support
  • Ajax Uploads (and progress bar support with the PECL uploadprogress extension)
  • Pretty Icons
  • All the goodness of CCK (multiple output formats, shared fields, multiple values, and much more)


  • PHP 5

  • MimeDetect (required for Drupal 5, but highly recommended for Drupal 6)

Recommended modules

  • Transliteration: Converts characters in uploads to server-safe formats.
  • ImageField: Upload widget for FileField that shows an image preview, with support for ALT and Title text.
  • FileField Paths: Save files using node-based tokens.
  • FileField Podcaster or iTunes: Create podcast feeds using Views and FileField.
  • SWF Tools: A set of media players for playback of audio and video files.
  • Search Files: Allows searching the actual contents of PDF, Word, Excel, text, and other files.


#D7CX: FileField does not need a Drupal 7 version because it has been moved to Drupal Core! A module to provide an upgrade path will be provided, but has not yet been created.
