Simple file upload Joomla 3.x

To keep things simple, this upload system is the only one available for NS Recipes 3.x versions and above.

Update System Settings:


Joomla 3 users:
 Simple file uploads will be used regardless of Image Upload settings.
Joomla 2.5 users
Same as J3 users, unless you run an NS Recipes version < 3.x. Access to upload system setting is available here:
Components > NS recipes > Options > Recipe Edition tab

Security Settings For All Joomla Versions

Three options are available: thumbnail width, max upload size, and authorized extensions. These options are available in Components > NS Recipes > Options > Recipe edition

YooRecipe Drag And Drop Upload
Resize Picture
Toggle Resizing. Our advice is to keep it set to "No," because NS Recipes can generate thumbnails. Creating thumbnails from a good quality image produces nice results.
Resized width
If previous option is set to yes, then NS Recipes will resize the upload picture to the specific width. Proportion is kept intact.
Max upload size
Maximum size of picture (in kilobytes)
Authorized extensions
A comma separated list of extensions, with no spaces. Case insensitive.


Recommendation: You should avoid .gif uploads.

Legacy: "Old" versions of NS Recipes

Prior 3.5. versions, NS Recipes came with several upload systems: Joomla native file uploadSWF UploadDrag n Drop & Simple file upload.

They allow your users to upload recipe pictures when submitting recipes from the front-end.

YooRecipe Main Settings

Joomla native file upload Joomla 2.5.x

This file upload system relies on Joomla image uploads.

SWF Upload Joomla 2.5.x

SWF Upload is a flash-based upload system. It allows instant picture resizing. Does not work on apple devices.

Tip: If you decide to use SWF Upload, NS Recipes will detect apple users and recommend the default Joomla upload system instead.
Known limitation: SWF Upload does not work if the sh404SEF component is installed.

Drag and Drop Joomla 2.5.x

Based on mootools, this elegant upload system makes it possible to drag a picture in an area. Pictures are not resized.
