Help Req - Upload directory based on dropdown menu?
September 3, 2012

Hi guys,

The issue

I want to create a site dedicated to sharing of modifications for the game Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator. As file indexing and categorizing system i'm using Wordpress Filebase ( and the way this system categorizes files is by folder.

Now this is my upload form:

As you can see it has a 'select file category' dropdown. This lets the user select which category (and therefore file path) the file should be put into.


The desired solution

i've set the base upload directory to correspond with the 'root downloads folder' of the Filebase index. Filebase will consider every folder within this root folder to be a seperate category. I've set the 'hiddenvalue' options for the dropdown menu to match the corresponding goal folders

So now what i would like to see is that basically this drop down menu influences the goal directory for the file to be put. Instead of "<wordpress>/<Cforms upload path>/" the output location should be "<wordpress>/<Cforms upload path>/<Hiddenvalue of the dropdown menu>/".

How do i do this?
