File Upload Field Type in Profile
Your idea has been submitted and is awaiting moderation.
We would love to have a way people could upload their CV/resume in their profile. But, there isn't a file upload field type.
In one sense, this should be easy because it's almost exactly how the photo field type works. The problem is that the token replace stuff later handles the photo field in an entirely special way. That code would have to be generalized to add tokens for upload fields. I would think there'd be three tokens added for each upload field. So, if the field name was "Resume", we'd get Resume_ID (reporting the file ID), Resume_Url (giving the raw URL), and Resume_Link (giving the LinkClick url). Of course, in settings, we should be able to specify the types of files allowed.
I think that would be a great improvement for DNN!
