    • size of the thumbnail adjustable

    • SEO optimization: automatic rename the filename (post title = image name)

    Ok, I tested it and here's what I'm getting - i tried uploading a gif file by the way.

    After browsing for the file and then clicking the start upload button, I was prompted if I wanted to leave the page.


    I clicked the Leave Pagebutton and the page was redirected to http://jquery-file-upload.appspot.com/ with the page displaying the following message.

    Also, when I go to Admin -> Plugin Management, I don't see any option of changing the setting for this plugin i.e. the Image Multi Upload 0.1 was not clickable.

    The plugin needs to add a hook reference at the top of the image_multi_upload.php file

    It currently has the following references
    * hooks: install_plugin, image_multi_upload, submit_2_fields, post_add_post, post_update_post, header_include, header_include_raw, theme_index_top
    and if you compare another plugin here, you can see the "admin_sidebar_plugin_settings" and "admin_plugin_settings" references needed

    * hooks: install_plugin, admin_sidebar_plugin_settings, admin_plugin_settings, theme_index_top, footer

    Would like to find a way that we can avoid having to edit these files in steps 4,5 and make the plugin work straight out of the box

    I agree. Having to edit the files can be somewhat annoying when there's an upgrade to a plugin or HotaruCMS - I always end up searching these forums looking for 'that' file which has to be updated. :eek:

    I noticed that my plug-in does not work with the version 1.5 alpha. it's the double load of jquery. The plugin is designed to jquery 1.8.3. I have now fixed some things in the new alpha version 0.1.1. hotaru 1.4.2 runs under the plugin easily.

    I have to think of something. since you have a button NEXT otherwise, then comes the upload window. this looks more than unpleasant. maybe you could put the upload form on title etc. but it looks very out stupid.
    usually the input fields should look like this: category, title, content, tags, upload, NEXT button
    If I remove the step 4 and 5 wirds look like this: category, title, content, tags, NEXT button, uploads

    Narc, I think there's still a problem.

    1. I click the green colored "Add file" button
    2. Progress bar seems to move and I get the "Uploaded succesfully!" message.
    3. Then I click the blue colored "Start upload" button - Nothing happens (do I need to do this?)
    4. Even if I skip step 3, I decide click Next so I can move on and try to submit my post. But again, nothing happens.

    EDIT: After installing the plugin (0.1.1), the theme color changed to the default blue-colored theme (all the fonts change to blue) - I"m using the default theme.

    I think we initially were including the reference to jquery with Hotaru and then decided to leave it up to the theme designer to put in the reference. I dont think it is a good idea for plugins to include jquery themselves. Can you try running it without the reference from the plugin?

    I changed some things again. including the jquery library away. so anyone can select the theme designer.

    the installation routine has changed somewhat.
    have the plugin now with hotaru 1.5.x beta tested. with the default theme, it is now also compatible.

    Please retest a.

    So, it's not yet 'safe' to use it as of now? :confused:

    only patience. I have to work next to the developed. so my time is quite limited. I will test everything and see. as you can see the plug in running with me on the site :)

    Moreover, it is still an alpha version that I ported from my plugin.

    Oh ok. Will wait patiently for it. :)

    It has a lot of potential and from the looks of it, it would be just perfect for my site.
