In 2.0 when we edit a gallery we get the new gallery/file manager. When we click on the drop down for the folders we can only go one level deep at a time.
It would be easier to navigate if the sub-folders were also displayed in the drop down, possibly a collapsible/expandable tree view.
CKfinder looks good! Would be perfect if it also allowed you to edit the caption for an image so that a particular caption would follow an image instead of re-entering a caption every time you used the same image, but I doubt that's an issue for most people.
oops. . . that's doesn't look like it will fly.
Found a better one: KCFinder!
Lgpl and has multiselect. Has more options for multiselect in general.
I could only get the demo to work in IE9. . .???????
Charles, have you tried to refresh browser cache? In a quick test it worked well in Opera, FF, Chrome, Safari, IE7-9 (compat.modes).
KCFinder looks cool and is also multilingual!
Jogai, you have bingo! :-)
I'm happy to contribute something useful.
Yeah, FF clears every time it closes and I tried Chrome in incognito and after clearing cache. I use the portable versions of browsers (how I have windows setup to be secure) but that shouldn't cause a problem.
That's what I get in FF & Chrome. . .
@Strodtbeck: Time to switch to Linux ;-)
A wild guess: KCFinder uses local storage and that functions not right in portable browsers?
Linux will be my next setup :)
Love CrunchBang! But have Win7 setup properly for now.
Local storage works fine in my portable browser setups. I don't have all that turned off as some do — I'm using them on the HDD itself not a USB. I just us all portable apps to partition everything off from the OS thus my C drive is read only and therefore nothing can write to it thus very difficult for malware and viruses to get in. :) . . . not to mention I don't get the typical Windows slow down over time.
However, it could be something simple with how they have the demo setup — all other demos on the site work fine.
Nonetheless, it looks great in IE :)
Found the problem. . . . duh.
Cookies. . . .. always freakin' cookies!
I have Chrome to block cookies in general and a plugin on FF to turn them on & off, had it off and forgot about it.
The gallery editor doesn't use CKEditor so changing it to use KCFinder may be a bit difficult. I do like the idea of using one image interface for text areas that do use CKEditor and gallery editing though.. and KCFinder is very nice.
BTW. . .
I want to make it clear that my initial feature request is not tied to the "file manager" though a tree structure there wouldn't hurt IMO.
It is for a folder tree structure when editing a gallery — you currently get a drop down that only allows you to navigate one folder level at a time and for some sites that have a lot of pictures (e.g. tutorials;) that are organized into many folders it gets a little confused not being able to see the entire structure of the folder system when hunting for an image.
