Details

Better File Uploader is a plugin that replaces and improves upon the Movable Type file upload tool.

  • Multiple file uploading and 1-click uploading put a focus on speed and efficiency
  • Resize on Upload keeps all images sized appropriately
  • Watermarking ensures all images have your branding
  • Consistent formatting with HTML Wrappers and definable image attributes
  • Easy photo gallery creation using Lightbox or EDSMT Photoblog templates
  • Specify a default location on your server where files are uploaded
  • Automatic thumbnail image sizing based on your settings
  • Supports MT4's Assets capabilities
  • Customize the upload interface to suit your needs
  • ...and so much more! The power of Better File Uploader lies in its flexibility to meet your needs.

Requirements

  • ImageMagick or NetPBM are needed to create thumbnail images, but neither is required to use Better File Uploader’s other features.
  • ImageMagick is required to use the watermarking feature.

HI, is there a way that by default all the images are embeded without a thumbnail?

Here is what I have done when I don’t want the plug in to create thumbnails. What I do is go to the thumbnail options and I disable the create thumbnails option. You can also have it create the thumbnails, but disable the create a thumbnail image option. This is actually what I do for my website since I have a lot of different sizes of stamps that need thumbnails, but I usually create the one that I show in the gallery by hand so that it looks just the way I want.

Visit the plugin’s Settings and look at the Thumbnailing Options. If you don’t ever want thumbnails, uncheck “Create Thumbnails.” If you usually don’t want thumbnails leave Create Thumbnails checked and uncheck “create a thumbnail image.”

It’s covered more thoroughly in the documentation.

Does anyone know if this plugin works with MT 5?

As it says on the plugin’s page: Currently not compatible with MT5.

This plugin works with movable type v5.x.

What you should do is to apply this patch: http://forums.movabletype.org/2010/04/better-file-uploader-and-mt5.html

Without that patch the “Close” button from the plugin won’t work and thus you won’t be able to close the “Better File Uploader” popup window after uploading your images.

Applying the patch is a very simple operation.

You could safely search for “mt-close-dialog” and you are going to find 5 tmpl files where you need to apply the patch recommended on the URL above.

The files in question are: /plugins/BetterFileUploader/tmpl/fileexists.tmpl /plugins/BetterFileUploader/tmpl/newentry.tmpl /plugins/BetterFileUploader/tmpl/processing.tmpl /plugins/BetterFileUploader/tmpl/show_html.tmpl /plugins/BetterFileUploader/tmpl/upload.tmpl

Just for information. movement2016.org will move 1% of $1 billion ($10 million) from TV ads to grassroots vote work and local organizing in 2016 USA Presidential Election.
