Comment Uploads 2.x

Legacy documentation for Comment Uploads 2.x.


  1. Within the /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory, copy the comment_uploads folder into your sites ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory.
  2. Go to the Extensions area in the ExpressionEngine control panel, find Comment Uploads in the list, and click Enable.
  3. Setup and configuring:
    • Enabling this extension will automatically create a new File Upload Preference in the ExpressionEngine CP, and a new folder named comments in your ./images/uploads/ directory.
    • Make sure the permissions of this folder are set to writable, typically 777 on Unix servers.
    • There is no CP-based configuration for this extension, aside from the EE File Upload Preference - you can edit that as necessary. The rest of the functionality lies with the template tags.


  1. Within your sites ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory, delete the comment_uploads folder and upload the new one from the /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory in your download package.
  2. The extension will update automatically, and requires no further action from you.
