My research seems to be indicating that only a single file control widget is possible per form when creating said form with the Forms API.
Is this true? Still?
I'm operating in D6, I don't want to use CCK because I want to keep my custom content type within a single DB table, but I do want to be able to upload multiple files - in separate form controls which lie in separate fieldsets from one another (logical context of what the file is for).
If one uses the CCK based upload options (such as those outlined here: How to upload multiple files at once?) as soon as multiple uploads are enabled, the content type's DB table gets fragmented by having the CCK upload control's data moved to its own DB table. I don't want that.
Is the only alternative to write some AJAX/AHAH logic handling this in the background, with the FAPI's file handling basically useless here?
