  • Is this Flash-based?

Yes. Flash 8+ is required for this plugin to function.

  • Assuming the images are stored in the db, let’s say someone wants to create an article with multiple images..how would they reference them? TXP id? URL?

The same way you reference images uploaded the traditional way. This plugin just changes the method of uploading these images.

  • Will your Crop plugin also be ransom-ware?

I don’t know. I really haven’t decided. Ask me again in a couple weeks.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

Revision A.008 of the flash file has been posted. It includes new help dialogs, and now allows the maximum filesize to be set by the user/textpattern.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

I have no experience with flash in textpattern sites:
Assumed someone hasn’t yet flash installed in the browser, what will be shown?
Is there an (really) easy way for the users/clients to get flash onto their computer? With only one button preferable?

Can’t wait the ransom be reached :-)

My colleagues are daily unceasingly asking “when will you show us how to upload and present our galleries…”.

Most everyone should have the flash browser plugin installed, but if not a blank popup is all they will see.

If they need it installed they should be redirected to flash plugin install site automatically.

If not you go simply go here and follow the instructions. It should be painless.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

@soulship
ok, I see. The normal procedure.
Normally I also would think that mostly everyone already has it. But I fear most (of my clients) will not have the newest version. And I have a lot of clients which are anxious of doing things like installing a plugin and not willing to do so – I will have to take their hand and lead them every step. So of course it would be a fine thing if it could be straightened.
But of course I always could say “If you want such a thing as a gallery you have also to install that plugin.” It’s evident.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

I think from Flash 7 onward the client kind of takes care of updating itself. So unless they are on some managed corporate machines which have that locked down they should be ok. (although why allow flash and not let it update itself I will never understand but I have seen it.)

Re: Ebl_batchupload

Wow. It looks like it’s going to be released soon; sooner than I thought!

If it’s met during the weekend, the Flash (fla) source files will be available for download on Monday as they’re on my work computer, and I won’t be back to work until then. The latest revision of the flash portion of this plugin has been uploaded to the server and is waiting for release (revision A.008)
