Media Sorter


Provides a new context menu item in the media section to sort files and folders alphabetically by name. Sorting can be done at the root or any subfolder and can optionally sort all subfolders.


Please note that this package changes the appTree for the media section in order to add the option to sort from the root of the media section.

In order to reset the tree back to the default Umbraco media tree if/when you choose to uninstall this package you will require a custom Package action that I have developed called 'Update Application Tree Package Action' which can be downloaded from the blog post on my site and has been submitted to the PackageActionsContrib project. Either my dll or the patched PackageActionsContrib.dll MUST be present in your bin folder before you uninstall the package or your will be left with an empty media tree after you uninstall.

See here for more information on the Update Application Tree Package Action and why it is needed:


Please remember to vote for the package if you find it useful - thanks!
