I have a couple of forms where I need to attach metadata fields to files (a description, and a category).
The file_entity module alone lets me specify fields, but doesn't change the form fields.
When enabling the Media module, it sort of works, but the Media module
- does its work in an overlay, which is unacceptable - I need something that looks like if you enable the "description" option in the core File element
- breaks the look of the site as soon as I click on the "edit" button that opens the overlay - it loads the entire Bartik CSS even if the current theme is not related or using Bartik!
- is way too overcrowded - I don't need support for youtube
- is a security hole because people can browse all uploaded files!
So, basically, I need some way to attach a dropdown box to the standard file upload widget, nothing more - how do I achieve this? If possible, I'd prefer something that integrates at least with file_entity, so I don't have to define the field in code.
