Subject: Re: [development] How to reuse uploaded files

Unfortunately file management is one of the big weaknesses in Drupal 6, and I've never
found a solution that I really liked.  There are a lot of efforts toward improving that in D7
(the Media project, and assorted core file handling improvements) but for now there are
only half-measures.

John's suggestion is one of the reasonable methods, and IMCE plus TinyMCE is the common
way to manage embedded images.

Hey there, Gaston.  (I aplogize for not spelling your name quite

Basically, once a file is uploaded, it exists in the files directory -
so if you know the name, you can fairly easily use it (as in an image
tag) anywhere you like.

As for associating that file with another node, that I'm not as
familiar with off of the top of my head.

(Indeed, for re-using image files, I've tended to use an image node,
which consists of a simple node with an imagefield, and then using
nodereference to associate it with various nodes.)

Hi everybody!

I'm using the upload module to upload files into the Drupal nodes. The
question is, how can I reuse the files uploaded in a particular node in
other nodes? Exists a module to do this?
