Squiz Matrix Multiple File Upload jQuery Plugin

Thu, Jan. 31, 2013

Sick and tired of only being able to upload 1 file at a time using an Asset Builder in Squiz Matrix? With this plugin, you get Facebook style multiple file upload capabilities!


Upload Files

  • jquery.matrixMultiFileUpload.js
  • swfupload.swf
  • upload.png (Or your own upload button image)

Create Assets

  • Create a Standard Page asset
  • Create an Asset Builder
  • Configure asset builder to create your file type and set the create location to where ever you want the files uploaded. (This can also be dynamic)
  • Make the Asset Builder Live and give it Public Read permissions. (You can use the logged in body copy to prevent the public from using the asset builder)
  • Add <div id="created">%created_asset_url%</div> to the Created bodycopy of the Asset Builder.

Standard Page

Make sure to use script tags for jQuery and jquery.matrixMultiFileUpload.js and then insert the matrixMultiFileUpload function:

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="path/to/jquery.matrixMultiFileUpload.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

    // Add the uploader
        assetBuilderId:     '103593',// Asset ID of the Asset Builder that will create the file
        assetBuilderUrl:    '%globals_asset_url:103593%',// Asset Builder URL
        swfUrl:             '%globals_asset_url:103611%',// URL to SWFUpload file
        buttonImageUrl:     '%globals_asset_url:56731%'// URL to the upload button image
        assetType:          'pdf_file'// Optional parameter for file type, defaults to image

<div id="upload"></div>


Preview the Standard Page and you should see the upload button. Click this and then you can select multiple files (holding down shift) and upload them!
