management of uploaded files (Features)
I made the first step to make a big enhancement in the management of the uploaded files. At the moment it's a hassle to check the list of uploaded files as an admin. One has only access to this list in the upload-popup, the link disappears, when an image was uploaded from this form, only 5 images are displayed at one time, the navigation bar moves out of the viewport if one scrolls to the second (or maybe the third) image (when the popup is in its default size) and last but not least, a mod or admin can delete images only one by one.
As the first step I created in a testing installation a new view in the admin area to list the images. At the moment I have no idea if moderators should be able to access this list and how to handle this task with a function inside the admins area. Also at the moment a hardcoded limit of 20 images gets displayed (a pagination will be implemented). Every image entry gets it's own checkbox to select it for a joint delete-operation.
Furthermore every image should be able to open an infobox with the meta data of the file.
- name and date of the file
- size on disk
- usage in postings (if, then in the future)
- uploader (if, then in the future)
That's not implemented yet.
This is a first attempt and not the final solution. I am open for proposals and for suggestions for improvement but I do not promise to implement any (in the meaning of "all") of the provided ideas.
