FileField Sources is an extension to the FileField module. The FileField module lets you upload files from your computer through a CCK field. The FileField Sources module expands on this ability by allowing you to select new or existing files through additional means, including:
- Re-use files by an auto-complete textfield
- Attach server-side files uploaded via FTP
- Transfer files from a remote server (cURL required)
- Paste a file directly from the clipboard (Drupal 7 only)
- Select existing files through the IMCE file browser
Although FileField Sources provides several built-in sources, it can be extended by any module through an API for creating new sources. Users can toggle between any of the available methods for selecting a file.
