    Hi Matt

    First: wow, rocksolid work. The uploader is saving me a bucketload of time.

    I kinda miss an overview of the files in the folder i'm currently uploading too, which would make it easier to see which images were uploaded and which were not (some of us tend to forget easily :-) )

    It would also be a very nice feature to be able to create subfolders on the fly (righ-click functionality or something similar) instead of having to go into umbraco or create a folder with content and uploading it.

    Anyway, great work!!

    Perhaps the file overview of the current folder could be toggled, so the user can decied wether or not the fileoverview should be visible or not.

    Hey Martin,

    Nice siggestion on being able to see existing files. But regarding creating folders, you can just drag in a folder of files and it will create that folder and all of it's containg files in Umbraco. Saves you having to log into Umbraco at least.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Matt

    Yes, the folder upload method works fine, i guess my english skills made it unclear that i actually use that feature :-)

    I guess it's just a question about lazyness. Being able to add (empty) folders on the fly in the widget window saves me from adding a new folder somewhere on my system, adding files to it, and then drag/dropping it onto the widget. Then again, i might have to save my files in a folder on my computer somewhere anyway.

    Hi Martin,

    Ahh, ok, yea, that could be a nice feature too. I need to get round to writing DMU for you v5 anyway, so might make a few of these changes then.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Hi Matt

    You're very welcome.

    One last thing could be non-intrusive highlight of the "Files uploaded" popup. While "Woo hoo" really has me smiling, it's kind of a drag clicking the "OK" button multiple times in a day.

    Perhaps a green bar / green check icon in the top of the drop-area (for attention) that doesn't require clicking "ok" but can be dismissed(or something similar).

    Keep up the good work!

    Another good suggestion.

    Thanks Martin
