Multiple files to one attachment (6 posts)

    Is there any way this plugin can be used to have multiple files associated with one 'attachment'. What I mean is, apart from the meta textual information such as Title and Caption, is there a way to associate another attachment file to the primary attachment.

    For example, the main attachment might be a PDF file, but I might want to associate with it a thumbnail image of its front page or a preview of it.

    I am looking for something to help me associate attachments together.

    I'm looking for EXACTLY the same, if the author can help me a little bit I can probably add this functionality and give it back. Or maybe buying in support?

    Hi guys, Attachments isn't able to accomplish that and likely won't in the future. I might suggest checking out something like Custom Field Suite which will let you nest what it calls field groups, which would definitely accomplish this.

    Thanks Jonathan,

    Too bad, CFS seems a good solution, but I like the clean code of Attachments. Definitely going to use it on other projects!

    I guess thinking about it there could technically be a new field type for files with Attachments... I might give it a whirl at some point but I can't commit to it being a reality at this point. Sorry to disappoint!

    Yes, i looked into your code, but i'm inexperienced with the wordpress media library. But maybe I'll give it a try sometime. Your field types are easy to extend.
