The file manager needs to be updated to allow for multiple uploads via the file selection dialog (not selecting individual files in X number of upload slots), and all of the dialogs associated with it are very out of date. The GBFilePicker module is an example of a much better system, although it too doesn't handle multiple uploads in the 'modern' way.

Sometimes in the future, I hope there can be One file manager only, like there typically is one WYSWYG editor.

I typically have at least three different file managers installed, via different modules, which is not popular with end users.... I know the demands are different; include thumbnail creator etc but it should be possible. But a wish for sometime in the future....

Yep. In another topic I suggested that the Image Manager and File Manager should be merged. There's not really any reason they need to be separate modules.

Modules like the Shop module and the Slideshow also have their own file managers. I think it would be nice both for developers and end users if there was only one. My end users kind of get the hmmmmm look when I explain that there are different ones. So hopefully some time....

I think it partially comes down to standardising a few bits and pieces in CMSMS. For example, providing a file manager module that developers can add onto, use in various ways (e.g. a popup window/file selector) and so on, which would improve the user experience (consistency), reduce development time on third-party modules and reduce server storage. There are so many benefits.

For example, the Gallery module could simply 'plug into' the File Manager rather than needing its own upload and file management functionality. This would also negate the issue with Gallery whereby moving files/folders via File Manager causes thumbnail images to be lost etc.

Yes, I forgot the Gallery, so I often have five different file managers ::)

How about replacing the default file manager with ajaxplorer?
It has everything i ever dreamed about in a file manager!!

streaming preview content (music, vids)
code highlighter
great image editor (looks a bit like the old photoshop :)
zip/unzip files on the server
you can even browse trough the files in a zip, stream zipped audio & video files, extract individual files)
upload multiple files (with drag to browser support!)
There even is a search engine that searches recursively in folders and even in zip files
...

http://cmsms.uservoice.com/forums/5636-cmsms-feature-requests-ideas/suggestions/2541218-use-http-ajaxplorer-info-as-the-default-file-man

Greetings,
Manuel

Does this run under CMSMS now?

Do most browsers support Ajax?

I guess one wants core functions that support "every" browser, including mobile.

I think the problem is partly to get good and flexible file management into the core , preferably so that new file managers can be installed a bit like we can now do with WYSWYG editors. Then you also need to get module developers on-board, so that they use the same and not their own for each module.

There is a module for FEU by jean-christophe ghio (haven't tested it)
http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/feuajxp
But:
\$1:
Compatible with 1.9.x versions
WARNING : not compatible with Ajaxplorer OVER 3.0.x version


ajax browser support should be fine :)
http://www.tutorialspoint.com/ajax/ajax ... upport.htm

On the main page the following is stated:
\$1:
AjaXplorer interface adapts itself for small screen devices; there is also a native alternative for iOS devices, as well as one for Android devices.


Regarding user authentication:
\$1:
AjaXplorer comes fully equiped with a complete users management system, securing the whole installation at once. It can also be interfaced with existing authentication mechanisms, to implement a "Single-Sign On" system and make users life easier.


More info on CMS bridges:

Manuel

If you have access to the SVN, check out the core "trunk"

Hi Rolf,

Is this what you mean? http://svn.cmsmadesimple.org/svn/cmsmadesimple/trunk/
What should we be looking for? I didn't notice anything related to Ajaxplorer...

Yes

Correct, I didn't mean we use Ajaxplorer, but in general we are already working on a drag-drop multi-upload feature for cmsms 1.11.
If you can pull the trunk files to your computer you can test it yourself.
