Request for easier deletion of uploaded Images (Features)

Not sure if it can be done but just throwing the idea out there. My forum posters upload many Images and if I have to delete an Image I normally open the picture upload page, click "Browse uploaded images" and try to find the Image to click delete

This is ok if it's a recent upload but say it's been a few months since uploaded, it becomes Impossible doing it using the above method. Which means I have to login to the server cpanel and search for it there. This method is no good for moderators because I don't want them having access to the cpanel.

So can the picture upload "Browse uploaded images" page have a search feature for just only the admin and moderators whereby you can search using the Image filename 201705231416445924444cdb162.png to find the exact Image?

No, it can't … or better, it shouldn't (in the described manner).

But a complete rewrite of the upload feature is very desirable. I find no reason, why the search-in-the-image-list is only reachable via the upload form. I find no reason to restrict a more proper search feature to the admins and mods. The delete-images-feature itself of course should be restricted to the named groups (and the uploader of an image, when the image is not in use in an entry).

But that's a task for the next main release (2.5).

Tschö, Auge
