Upload Unzipper

Description

Upload Unziper let’s you upload zip-archives and have them extracted, each file properly attached to the current post.

It’s built upon and meant to replace James Revillini’s now-broken just-unzip, and expands on the original plugin in the following ways:

  • runs all files through WP’s sanitize filter to ensure valid filenames
  • does not attach duplicates
  • does not replace files with the same name
  • correctly deals with nestled directories
  • uses the latest WP core functionality and the latest PclZip version
  • and – perhaps most importantly – it works! 😉

In short – it’s a nice way to do batch uploading. I highly recommend you combine it with an inline image viewer and a plugin to better organize your uploads.

TODO (help needed)

This plugin could do with a few options. As it is, it’ll always unzip archives and then delete them – which might not always be desired.

There are options for this already used in the plugin so it shouldn’t be a problem, but I just loath front-end development. Placing a few tickboxes in the ‘upload’-iframe would do the trick. If you’ve got a few minutes to throw something together, please email me or post a comment to this plugin.

Options I’d like exposed:

  • delete zip when done (default: true)
  • unzip and attach (default: true)
  • attach zip to post (default: false)Copyright (C) 2007 Ulf Benjaminsson (ulf at ulfben dot com).

FAQ

Can I have the ZIP-file attached to the post too?

Yes. But you’ll have to alter the source. Open wp-upload-unzipper.php and set $addZipToPost to true.

Can I keep the ZIP-file on the server?

Open wp-upload-unzipper.php and set $deleteZipWhenDone to false.

Can I disable the automatic extraction of archives?

Disable the plugin. 🙂
