Attach Assets (binaries) to a Product

Post by NC Software » Tue Dec 11, 2012 3:04 pm

I'd like the ability to attach assets to a product that can show in a table/list. Mime types can be defined in AC just like the attachments system in vBulletin so an icon will be automatically displayed depending on the file type (asset). For example, I may want to attach PDF's for feature spec, owner's manual, etc. I may want to attach free trial'ware, a link to a video. The asset can be served from the store'ware OR a link to an item such as a video or external download. When adding an asset to a product have the following fields:

1) Title
2a) Upload button to upload the binary asset
2b) Link to asset (served externally)
3) Icon (if blank defaults to mime type icon or default if no mime type match found)
4) Hover hint (hover mouse over the item, the info tip that will display)
5) (checkbox) Allow Anonymous (if not then only logged in users will see the asset)
6) (checkbox) Open in new window
