Website Image Upload

on 7/25/15, 3:50 AM 3,190 views

I'm trying to get a code to allow users to upload images in some website module, that is the solution:

And with that code you can upload a file to ir.attachment.

<form t-attf-action="/someurl" method="post" role="form" nctype="multipart/form-data">
                <span class="btn btn-primary btn-file mt16">
Upload picture
<input type="file" name="picture"/>


@http.route('/someurl', type='http', auth="user", methods=['POST'], website=True)

def image_handle(self, **post):
post_file = [] # List of file to add to ir_attachment once we have the ID
post_description = [] # Info to add after the message
values = {}

for field_name, field_value in post.items():
if hasattr(field_value, 'filename'):

Forum = request.registry['forum.forum']
for field_value in post_file:
attachment_value = {
'name': field_value.filename,
'res_name': field_value.filename,
'res_model': 'forum.forum',
'res_id': forum.id,
'datas': base64.encodestring(field_value.read()),
'datas_fname': field_value.filename,
request.registry['ir.attachment'].create(request.cr, SUPERUSER_ID, attachment_value, context=request.context)

Many thanks for your collaboration!

I'm looking exactly for the same.

There is one module in which you can find exact what you want. Inside Odoo => addons => website_crm => controllers => main.py. In that you can find the method def contactus(self, **kwargs):.

You can see the code as you want that manage image / binary field from controller. In this code you can see that controller take the post info and insert it into binary field of attachment.  

Tips : When you want to submit any binary data from web form, you must need to select "multipart/form-data" value for enctype attribute in your form.

<form class="form-horizontal mt32" id="form_job" action="#" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

I am sure it will help you.

Nice, I didn't check that code. I achieve to upload attachments with that module, just adding: Upload picture In the form. How I can handle images sending it with post method?
