I've just added a custom form for users to submit articles, and images for the article. I want all the images to go into one folder for every user.
The way it works is when a user first submits and article, there's no fileupload control on the form so he just submits the article text , once the form is submitted the article data is stored in the database, the user can now edit his submission which now does show a fileupdate control and as he uploads images the images are prefixed with "articleId_" so something like "1232_myImage.gif" , "1232_my2ndImage.jpeg" and "1232_my3rdImage.gif"
So what I want to do is store all the images under one Folder
Where the best place to put this folder, is it under ~/Data/Sites/1/MyFolder or directly under the root folder - cause I'm not sure, where's the best place to make it simple to access when you need to display the images.
I'd put it under /Data/Sites/[SiteID]/media/myfolder
Less priveledged users can browse starting at the media folder so if you put it higher probably only admins can access it in the image browser.
Hope that helps,
