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! 😉
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).
