Tagged with drag-and-drop, media, upload

A CosmoCode Plugin


Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


Simply drag and drop a file from your filesystem into the editarea of your page to upload it into the current namespace. If the file already exists you will be given the option to skip, overwrite or rename it.

This Plugin integrates well with the fetchmedia plugin. If you have both, then you can drag'n'drop files into the file explorer of the fetchmedia plugin.

Configuration and Settings

  • insertFileLink: Insert a link to every successfully uploaded file at the current cursor position. Deactivated by default.

    Version upped
  • Release 2018-08-02 by micgro42
    This release fixes a bug with the insertSyntax option that the syntax wouldn't actually be inserted if the text in the editarea had been changed. This release also adds the feature that the marked text will become the label or title in the added syntax.
