So there is a ‘files blueprint’ which helps with filtering file input. Sadly though it only seems to apply to uploaded files. Is there a way ‘filter’ file selection based on a ‘file blueprint’?
I thought of making an ‘only-upload’ file-field but that is simply not possible without custom code, also when removing a file, it won’t remove it from the filesystem (as it doesn’t delete an upload, but a link to an upload).
Second option I could think of is using the files-section and bind it to a dedicated (unpublished) page. But that doesn’t really prevent selecting a file which doesn’t fit the uploads filter unfortunately.
So is there a way to allow only spefic files to be selected in either a direct or indirect way?
If we are talking about the user selecting files from a given set, then we are talking about a files field.
A files field has two functions:
possibility to select a file from a selection defined through the query option. The query option lets you filter all files of the page (or from another page) by different criteria, including the applied template.
possibility to upload a file to the page or another page and at the same time assign a file template (in which you can set the accept property to filter by file types
