Plugin: Image Browser (formerly called Insert Imag (57 posts)

    This plugin adds an "Insert Image" button to the top right corner of the edit screen which opens an image browser to select from all previously uploaded images and add the appropriate code to the post. If you want, you can consider it a sort of mini-gallery to select the images from.
    Current features include atomagical recognization of thumbnails, sorting images by name or by time of last modification for easy selection and many more. Apart from that, the new version now supports displaying images on multiple pages in a gallery-like style, thus you can handle large(r) amounts of images without problems.
    You can download the plugin here.

    Solid! Will put it to test tonight if I get a second. Thanks Zarn. If I could only read german, I would link to your site :-)

    Just added it Zarn. It looks excellent but is there any way of changing the directory that it defaults to for images?
    Thanks for making the plugin.

    Fantastic plugin! I love the way it automatically recognizes thumbnails. The only thing I've noticed is that for some reason with the WYSIWYG editor hack, it won't automatically copy the code in, but a simple copy and paste takes care of that.
    The only improvement I'd like to see is the ability to browse folders that are inside of the default upload folder.
    Thanks again.

    @shadow: You can change this in the admin panel (Options > Miscellaneous)
    @theglobalguy: I already gave some thoughts to the browse subfolders idea but, as far as I know, WP has no support for this, or am I wrong? Anyhow the idea is on the todo list just below thumbnail (re)creation abilities.

    I'm not enough of a PHP guy (yet) to know exactly how it's done, but the File Manager hack (in the wiki) and the recently posted exhibit plugin both support browsing subfolders from a given root folder. You might be able to borrow some of that code.

    I've installed this and the button isn't showing up. I'm pretty sure everything is ok. I'm *assuming* the default image directory is /mydomain.com/myblog/images/ and I've enabled the plug-in.
    I'm also using safari on Mac OSX 2.3 and wp-style-switcher
    thanks

    I know the placement looks a bit out of place, but the button should appear literally in the top right corner of the screen -- or should I say, the browser window? Are you sure, you really looked at the right place?
    If you are unsure, you can just search the whole page for "Insert Image". Please leave me a note, if you really can't find it.

    On your site it says some way to put that button below the post screen. I do not really understand the instructions there so could you please explain it herE?

    Thanks for the detailed instructions on how to place the button there =)
    Also, one feature that would be nice is to popup a new page that resizes to the picture size just like the photo display hack. I did some editing to add the onclick stuff to the output, it works fine here except I broke the code to adding the output into the post screen. Have to manually cut and paste now, heh

    I'm having the same problem as rayn. Hah! We even have almost the same name. I cannot find the insert image link anywhere on my post page. I've copied the files to the right places and I've activated the plugin, but it isn't showing up. I search the whole page using the search in page on my browser for the words "Insert" and it was not found. I'm trying to install to 2 different WP installations and it isn't showing up in either. I'm using version 1.2 epsilon RC2.

    You should upgrade to 1.2 final which is much more stable and has less bugs. Maybe your plugin problem will be solved by this as well. If it isn't, just leave me another message here.

    Zarniwoop: When I wrote the Exhibit plugin, I created a new plugin insertion point in the advanced editing form. It lets you drop additional form elements into the form that can update when you submit the rest of the post data. Check out the Exhibit installation instructions and I'm sure you'll recognize it immediately.
    If we can get editing plugin developers on-board with this style of plugin, we might have a better chance of seeing it included in the next WP release. I like the idea of making just one change to the WP source to enable many editing plugins.

    This plugin is great! Just two things to make it superb:
    1) align option for the images
    2) integration with wysiwyg
    Great work man!

    @ringmaster:
    I already looked at the code to see how you worked around the "placement problem" ;-) and I also thought about using this solution but decided against it because I didn't want to change any original code at all.
    Nevertheless, I just reconsidered about it and yes, I will add and use the hook in the next release of the plugin.
    @vsa:
    Maybe I will install this "What You See Is not What You Get"-thing and see what can be done, but time is short at the moment and I don't know much about javascript so this may take its time.

    Thanks. I upgraded to the latest version (1.3 pre-alpha) and I now have the insert image link. Thanks! I know I'll be using this plugin a lot.

    It works in 1.3 pre-alpha? So I don't have to change anything for the upcoming release? This is cool!
    @vsa:
    I also tried to install this WYSIWIG-stuff but it does not work, because I failed to open the rar-archive (I'm using linux and don't have this new rar-program to do open it), but maybe I can ask a friend to help me with this. I don't know why he doesn't use zip like all the other plugins.

    I got it! Thanks for the repackaged plugin. Unfortunately I'll be away from home for some days, so it will have to wait until the weekend.

    I just got another email about the Image Browser not working with WP 1.2 RC epsilon.
    The RC in the name means that it is a Release Candidate and not a stable version and for this reason contains bugs and may lack some of the features. I just downloaded the old code to figure out what's the problem and in fact some needed hooks of the plugin API were missing. So please upgrade to the final and stable WP 1.2 which fixes this and many other problems.

    I was just lamenting over the absent "upload image" button on the edit screen (just upgraded to 1.2 from 1.0.2) and I'm so glad I saw this thread.
    In simplest terms: your plugin rocks. Thank you for writing it.

    I've read about your nice hack and installed it now.
    I followed your instructions. But I can't see the thumbnails of the images in the popup-window.
    My images folder are not the standard wp-content folder, but it's called images at the same level.
    Where is my failure?

    The plugin uses the upload folder configured under WP options. Maybe you can check if the paths are correct (if normal WP upload works and gives you the correct code, it should be ok).
    Do you get an error message or doesn't it display anything at all?

    Zarniwoop, I get the same problem.. I just set up a 1.2 final WordPress installation today for a friend using your Image Browser v0.4.. I changed the upload folder to 'images' at the same level as wp-content, just as Anonymous has. The thumbnails do not appear. I viewed the source for the pop-up window and the img src line looks like this:
    <img src='http://www.janiekong.com/images/thumb-janie1.jpg' width=&quot;200&quot; height=&quot;163&quot; alt='' />
    I'm using IE6, so I'm not sure if the '"' is "legal" with other broswers.. but thats what is causing the image not to appear..
    In any case, this plug in is great.. thanks a lot!
