Bulk file management

    Extend the Manage > Uploads section of the Dashboard to have more robust file management: the ability to add files in bulk, with a progress meter; the ability to recognise files uploaded via FTP and insert them into the database, with some editing features.

    Popup Image Gallery 4.2.3 plugin has good manipulation features of a gallery image: edit the image caption, title, links to both full and thumbnail images all within simple interface).

    Also -- the ability to upload to more than one destination in the WordPress install -- eg, a general file upload area; also a second area, for example to be used for gallery upload (same plugin mentioned above requires separate folders for each album, so the ability to specify a base folder and then new folder names during upload).

    This makes the file management a "common" library accessible across posts and pages, and doesn't rely on page-level or post-level uploading at the time of content creation -- some images are required more generically when establishing a WP site (eg icons).

    Hmm, the ability to recognize files uploaded via FTP and add them to the database is a nice one.

  3. Yeah, that and a progress meter would be great.
