File Gallery
[resolved] Can't reorder attachments by drag and drop (12 posts)

    first off, thanks for the seriously great plugin.

    i can't seem to be able to reorder attachments by drag and drop if i untick "Display options for inserting galleries / single images into a post" in media settings (while i'd like to keep these 2 rows hidden as i am not using this functionality).

    if i tick this option back on, everything is fine again, and i can rearrange attachments just fine.

    tried this in the most current versions of FF and Chrome. Using FileGallery v1.6.5.1.

    thanks in advance for your help.

    @jardokraka: thanks for noticing this! I've fixed it in 1.6.5.2, which should be available for download soon, and at latest by tomorrow via automatic updates :)

    thanks for fixing this in v1.6.5.2.

    re: "Display options for inserting galleries / single images into a post?" in media options —

    i believe ideally these options should be separated, as one might want to display one (say, gallery options) but not the other (single image options), or vice versa.

    moreover :), right now i'm working on a project where i'd like to display both buttons (insert gallery, and insert single image), but _not_ the options, as they'd only distract and confuse the user (hence my previous report of the 'display caption' not on by default). what i'm doing right now is setting the defaults in media options, and then hiding these filegallery controls with display:none in my custom admin css (which works quite well due to your nicely organized code and IDs for pretty much everything, additional thankyou for that!).

    i can also think of a situation where i'd want to display both buttons, and the options for just one of them :).

    in other words, i believe this level of interface customization would be fantastic, it's something that this plugin lacks right now, but it's also what it deserves, taking into account how incredibly good it is in most areas.

    it just takes custom backend development for wordpress to a whole new level, i can't believe i hadn't found it earlier. i'll most certainly be back with more ideas (if you don't mind) and bug reports (if any).

    thank you.

    @jardokraka: well, those toggle fieldset visibility buttons will have to do for now :)

    I'll definitely implement your idea in the next version, but it's going to take me a few weeks to release it.

    Keep posting your suggestions, they are more than welcome :)

    I've separated the display of options in v1.6.5.3 which should be available momentarily, please try it out :)

    even though i'd still like to be able to hide the fieldset (options) altogether (no toggler, no nothing), i admit that might overload the media settings page a little with too many options :). incase there is a need, one can always hide the fieldsets with css, i guess.

    thank you very much for the recent update!

    but, jardokraka - you can!

    in v1.6.5.3, on the media settings page, at the bottom, there are three options (checkboxes):

    * Display options for inserting galleries into a post?
    * Display options for inserting single images into a post?
    * Display attachment custom fields?

    just uncheck the first two and the fieldsets will not even be printed out, not just hidden :)

    @Aesqe: then i guess i've failed to express myself properly.

    what i want for _some_ of my projects (and i will potentially want it again and again) is this:

    as i said in my earlier message in this thread:

    right now i'm working on a project where i'd like to display both buttons (insert gallery, and insert single image), but _not_ the options, as they'd only distract and confuse the user (hence my previous report of the 'display caption' not on by default). what i'm doing right now is setting the defaults in media options, and then hiding these filegallery controls with display:none in my custom admin css (which works quite well due to your nicely organized code and IDs for pretty much everything, additional thankyou for that!).

    in other words, i want my user to just tick an image (or several images) in FileGallery and press one of the 2 blue buttons - no options, no toggler, all defaults set by admin in media settings.

    truly, i'm not sure if such granularity wouldn't be an overkill. perhaps it would. or not. me i'd love it.

    @jardokraka you are absolutely correct, I knew I forgot about something, eh :)

    I'm working on some minor modifications at the moment and I'll be releasing a new version tomorrow, most probably with your suggestions implemented.
