Dev Reorg Note:

The latest version of FileAttachments includes attachments under revision control. It's in the 01 Sep 2001 TWiki release.

Each topic can have files attached to it. This is similar to an e-mail attachment. Just use your browser to upload or download a file.

  • To upload: Click on the Attach link at the bottom of each page. A form is shown where you can browse for a file and upload it. The uploaded file will show up in the FileAttachment table.
  • To download: Click on the file in the FileAttachment table.

FileAttachment table

Is a table that looks like this:

FileAttachment: Action: Size: Date: Who: Comment:
(attached file) (view, update, add) (file size) (upload date) (uploaded by) (file comment)

Action is:

  • view: View file. This is the same as clicking on the filename.
  • update: Update file that is already attached.
  • add: Add a new attachment.


  • Once a file is attached it can be referenced in the topic by %ATTACHURL%/{filename} . Example:
  • GIF and JPG images can be attached and shown in the text like this:
    • Attach file: Smile.gif
    • Edit topic and write text: %ATTACHURL%/Smile.gif
    • Text is shown as: Smile.gif , i.e. it shows up as an image.
  • It is not possible to delete attached files with the current TWiki implementation. Contact if you need to delete files.
