Better uploads functionality

  1. syncbox


    I know there are several ideas in this category, but here are mine:

    I rather liked the old upload functions better, but I don't see why WordPress can't just do a "file manager" approach to allowing uploads in general...?

    • An general admin page that displays the directory of the designated upload folder with all content within.
    • folder must have proper permissions, etc
    • a browse button to locate media locally and put it into the directory
    • then below that, displays all images as thumbnail previews; all swfs with icons, etc. in the upload folder.
    • on write/manage page/post, a collapsible block that displays existing images/media in the uploads (or designated) folder with a click on function to insert into page/post, per earlier methods for adding images.

    All I want is the ability to see EVERY image in my upload folder & to be able to select any of them in any post or page I am working on. I don't expect to upload from the page or post itself -- a general location to do uploads would work for me.

    This is important. We need to have folders and permissions per user.
    Then when you have many users (I am at 60+) they can find their photos without getting lost or confused.

    I have had to do a LOT of unnecessary training of users, people who want to USE wordpress not to be a web expert. Examples of daft things that most bloggers wouldn't do, but occassional users do often.

    #1 Upload huge files.
    #2 Put huge files in posts
    #3 complain about speed of uploading and page rendering.
    #4 complain they cant find THEIR picture(s) .
