    Creation of empty folders?

    Obviously fantastic product Matt, many thanks :)

    Not a biggy but possible feature request.

    I've noticed that DMU ignores empty folders and was just wondering if there's a good reason for this?

    I just wanted to set up a media folder structure before handing the site over to the client, some folders have images but some are just empty folders.

    Obviously I could have just created the structure within Umbraco but I find it quicker to do this locally.

    Hi Rich,

    At the moment, the DMU uploader doesn't really have the concept of folders, rather, files with extra "path" information. This makes it pretty easy, as everything can be handled as an upload. It could be made to support folders, but I don't think the added complexity would outweigh the payoff. As you say, I'd probably just set it up in Umbraco manually (and is pretty much what I do myself now). 

    Failing that, just stick a placeholder file in each folder, and either leave it, or delete it from the server (quicker to delete a file, than to create a folder).

    Thanks for the suggestion though.
