Bulk Download From File & Image Manager

Post by daamon »

Hi. I've recently taken over ownership of access to CMS Made Simple and have a large number of files (in File Manager) and images (in Image Manager) that I need to download. I can't see a way of downloading them in bulk - the only way that appears to be the way to do it is one by one. Surely not?

Is there a way to do a "Tick all, bulk download of files and images"?

Thanks.

First, it sounds like you're using a very old version - Image Manager hasn't been a thing for years.

That said, File Manager and Image Manager are/were just convenient ways of adding/managing files - a bulk download would be better done through the file system (ssl/ftp/cPanel/etc).

If you have no access to the host and are really in a pinch, you could try a browser extension like "download them all" which downloads all linked files on a page.

Thank you so much! An absolute life saver! I went the browser extension and got done what I wanted to do in about 15 minutes. Brilliant!

Thank you again.
