did you try the new database module with moodle 1.6? You can add as many fields as you need, images and attachments included.
But you can also add attachments to wiki pages (put one author at one wiki page, with attachments).

I have no idea what you mean by that. Can you be more specific? give a real example?
I want to put a line like: "Ussery, D.W. and Langeveld, S.M.J." in the concept line, when I add a PDF the layout turns out like:
and Langeveld, S.M.J.
I´m trying to reproduce this, but I can´t. Using your concept line, everything works fine for me.
Which version of moodle are you using? Which display format of the glossary are you using?
Which theme for your site are you using? What is the exact name of the pdf, meaning how long is the name? Could you include a screenshot? What is the browser you are using?
It seems, that the full style of display uses tables, with concept and attachment name in one row. So maybe it worth giving the encyclopedia style a try, in case you are using full style right now.
Does this problem occur in encyclopedia style too?
Indeed, the display format seemed to be the problem. I was using the simple dictionary style and with "full" the problem is solved. For future reference I've attached a screenshot.
Do you mean that you take the following course of action in one of your course Glossaries:
- Add a new entry
- In the concept field, type Ussery, D.W. and Langeveld, S.M.J.
- in the definition field, type e.g. "Attached to this Glossary "definition" is a PDF file containing a lecture by Ussery and Langeveld about DNA Symmetry Elements in Whole Genomes
- In the Attachment field, add a link to e.g. Ussery_Langeveld.pdf
Try to answer Timm's questions, and post a screen shot so we can see exactly what happens so maybe we can help.
for answerring your questions I have to get to work first (which is friday), because somehow I cannot access my moodle site from home (another thing I have to solve).
The course of action described by Joseph is right.
I think I have the last version of 1.5
I have the basic layout (white, dunno the exact name)
I'll check the settings friday and get back to you
