Is there a CCK field where I can add a link to a file, not an upload but something that will save the link as a URI.

  • Your question is not clear to me. Can you please elaborate. Nov 7, 2014 at 11:15
  • ok I have an image cck field and I want to attach a link to it - the file is one of 10 previously uploaded files so I would like to just select the file via a file browser and then in the node tempalate convert the uri to a link and wrap it around the image.

Try the IMCE for FileField module. I've tested this module and working fine. It seems this is the module what you're looking for

IMCE for FileField allows users to select files from IMCE File Browser. It supports FTP uploaded files by automatically registering them as IMCE files thus making them usable in a FileField.


Go to your filefield settings and Enable 'Allow users to select files from IMCE File Browsers for this field

enter image description here


Go you Manage Display settings of your content type and select FORMAT as URL to file

enter image description here


In node add / node edit form you can browse the previously uploaded files (from server) by clicking on 'Open File Browser' link.

So the file link will be displayed at node output for the uploaded file.
