Setting up image gallery fields (file upload fields)

I have also installed the custom press plugin and have configured a few fields without any problems. However I can't figure out how to add file upload fields for an image gallery. In the custom press plugin, there is not an option for a field type of 'file upload'.

    Greetings jyarnold,

    Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    Understanding how MultiSite and regular WordPress sites store uploaded files is probably the key to why uploading is not available in Custom Press and normally reserved for the media library.

    To make this happen something must go around the normal media library and the way it stores files. This something may very well be SB Uploader plugin or perhaps even better Types - Custom Fields and Custom Post Types Management plugin which specifically states:

    File upload custom fields:

    File - allows uploading files to posts and displays a download link on public pages
    Image - allows uploading images and displaying them at different sizes with a resize cache

    Please advise if either of these takes care of image uploads to your custom fields.

    Cheers, Joe
