I try to answer some of your points:
I created http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/UploadPlus
because I needed a more flexible upload file storage solution for a
large business website. Some wiki groups had hundreds of pages, and
each page had many images as attachments. I wanted to store them
cleanly, associated with each page. One othe reason was the use of
ThumbList as a image gallery, so I created basically one gallery per
But some other groups had only
relativ few attached images per page, an dit was neater to have those
stored in one group folder, rather than in Group/Page/ folders.
So UploadPlus was born. But I don't know how it interacts with the
MovePage recipe. RenamePage should not cause a problem as attachments
are not physically moved.
Re NewPageboxPlus vs Fox:
NewPageBoxPlus may be all you need. Fox can do vastly more, and
utilises PmWiki's (:input:) form markup, so it is extreemly flexible.
It also can process multiple pages, can post to multiple pages, which
may be needed in some situations.
Re: Fox vs other form processors:
There is no competition! You can use PmForms and Fox side by side
without conflict. PmForms has a different approach and is built
simpler. Fox has more features. Performancewise I don't really know.
Fox has a bigger code base, but is not slow because of that.
I developed it from recipe AddDeleteNewLine years ago, before Pm got
PmForms done. It developed from there, and since it is a feature rich
multitarget processor it has a role in some sites.
On my own sites I use a lot of recipes I developed, since I know them
best. And I try to be uptodate with what I published in the Cookbook.
Questions and suggestions always welcome!
