In out website, we wish to present the users with a form that would allow them to upload picture galleries. The form consists of a
<textarea> for a description, a
<select> with sharing options and the multiple file upload field.
The problem is that we need to reference ALL the files in a
GalleryPost object, and the POST request that we get from the form only contains the values of
<select>. Which makes sense, since the uploading is done asynchronously via separate requests.
Since we're using OneUpUploaderBundle to handle the actual uploads, we've tried enabling the orphanage feature described here, which kinda helps doing what we want, but as stated in the "known limitations" section, if the user does not submit the form, but starts over with a new one, the previously uploaded files will be submitted, together with the new ones, unless the session id is changed.
Simply put, we need a way to attach a list of files (names would suffice), that have been successfully uploaded, to the form's POST request, so that we could reference them in our
GalleryPost object. Or maybe there is some other way to achieve the functionality we need?
