Media Icons


The Media Icons package modifies the Media section trees to show file specific icons, rather than just the default Image/File icons, therfore making it easier to identify specific files types.

Additional icons can be added by dropping them in the /umbraco/images/umbraco/media/ folder and just need to follow the naming convention of {ext}.gif ie pdf.gif, doc.gif, xls.gif

If an icon can't be found, or the file has no extension, the package reverts back to the default Umbraco icons.

If you do add any icons which you think should be included in the default set, by all means suggest it in the forums.
