Digital file tools

Add digital file upload and download to your Dreamweaver site

Dynamic page building tools

Add digital file upload fields to your Dreamweaver forms from a wizard. Have complete control over what can be uploaded, where the file is stored and more.

Also create a secure download center in Dreamweaver with the assistance of the Download wizard.

These tools were once a stand-alone extension called Digital File Pro. Now they are integrated into our powerful Dreamweaver extension, Data Bridge.

arrow downAdd digital file upload fields to your PHP forms

Add digital file upload fields to your PHP forms to let your website visitors or administrators upload files. For example, you may want to build a form to let your customers submit images for a contest or create a “my account” section on your website where they can upload their avatar. On an administrative website or CMS, you may want to give your admins the ability to upload product images or a photo for a news story. You can also use the digital file field to let users email files.

Use the wizard to configure where files should be stored on your server and how to handle file uploads with the same name. Optionally set restrictions on the file type (.jpg, .pdf, etc.) and file size (kb). Re-format, re-size, rename or delete uploads.

Setting up your upload

Add a progress bar to your form so that once your user hits the submit button, they know the form is submitting - particularly useful for forms that include upload fields as the submission may not be instant. Choose from multiple progress bar designs.

Allow your website visitors to securely download files based on specific criteria, useful when you are selling digital files, such as music or software. You can manage the download name to integrate a dynamic element, such as their user ID, and limit or track the number of times a file is downloaded. You can even delete successfully downloaded files.
