      Agreed. Must allow download of a folders contents. Not for migrating sites, just for managing existing media. I have many existing PDFs and Jpegs in a folder. Ideally want to download them to easily resize and rename before uploading again. Much easier than trying to do it all on the site.

      Export & Import option with checkboxes as well, so we could create "Folder structure templates" to our "Template" WP site and export it to the client site. You need to create the folders structure only once and repeat exporting & importing.
  • Image Thumbnails on Hover

    The images in the Media use square-cropped thumbs. It would be handy to see the whole image when hovered over. WP Media Folder (which I plan to replace with your plugin) has this feature, and I miss it.

      Yes it would be almost a necessity for the list of files to be able to be ordered by the date assigned to the file. I assume that somehow that date field would also need to be added OR maybe files can be reordered manually in the backend? Or both? Just suggestions. In my example, I'd need the most recent file first, but this wouldn't be when the file was uploaded, there would have to be some sort of manual intervention.

      This is exactly the reason I came to this roadmap, hoping someone had suggested this feature. A simple vertical list would be great where the title field of the file is used alongside a download button, or even the title linked. This would need to be up to accessibility standards, so I guess it would be more meaningful to screenreaders to have the file title linked to the download, rather than a just a download button. The current FILE Guternburg block has the title linked and has a download button. As I said there's already a Guternburg block called FILE that gives us what we need but it takes far too long to keep on adding lots of files. Your FILES blocks would be awesome so that people can just add the file to the category and it appears on the page automatically. WOW. A great way to maintain/update files on a page. Hope you'd consider making this available asap. Amazing plugin- well done!

      @Thomas replace media means you "swap" an exisitng image file with a newer one. By default in WP, if you have eg an image "my-image.jpg" and some time later you get/have an updated version and you upload that one into WP, then WP change it into "my-image-1.jpg" automatically and keep both versions. Usually the purpose is to change an image while not having to mess with delete old file, upload new file, edit the post/product/page/... everywhere that image is used and select the new one. Instead, you just go to media library select the "old" one, click replace, select the new one and it's done. All "instances" where the old image was used has now been replaced with the new one without having to edit X locations. Hope this clear up the purpose ;)

      Thomas, I think replace media means you can replace an image across your site without having to update your website content. Means this feature replace an image with the exact same name for all screen sizes and other occurances.

      This would be very helpful if it could rename the files to the Alt Text. For example, the Brizy Page Builder's sync function renames all the media files, even the fonts, to a generic name. Not good for SEO.

      Would be great if this includes an option to "auto" rename based on the file title. So eg I call an attachment "Beautiful temple in India" but the filename is DC2379273982.jpg, then auto rename makes it something like "beatiful-temple-in-india.jpg" which is much better in terms of SEO.

      As far as I saw almost all of these options should be available in list view (standard wordpress feature). But I agree: File size would be a nice addition. Also, to make these available in grid view. And to be able to omit certain columns, e.g. "uploaded to".

  • More Useful List view

    Default WP list view could be better. Having details view instead of thumbnails would be great also, use cases: Not having image files, for example 25 PDF's or so. Having different varioations from one image, differences will not be visible in thumbnail, but would be easily visible in list view. Lots easier to navigate. Here's a quick mockup & comparison: https://prnt.sc/u8fsz8

  • Make it easier to remove media/page/post from a folder

    25
    Right now, it seems the only way to remove media/pages/posts from a folder is to drag them into the uncategorized folder. While this isn't terrible, it creates more work if you have more than one folder associated with the asset. Then you have to drag them back into those other folders. The more folders associated, the more the work. Kinda like throwing out the baby with the bath water. Being able to select the asset and drag it OUT of the folder would be nice. Having a quick edit feature in there too wouldn't hurt. -PH

    To enable the lightbox via the happyfiles_gallery shortcode please add the following parameters:

    • lightbox=”true”
    • lightboxFullscreen=”true” (optional)
    • lightboxZoom=”true” (optional)
    • lightboxThumbnails=”true” (optional)

    As a HappyFiles Pro user you can now whitelist/blacklist sites right from your HappyFiles account. Use this new feature to further secure access to HappyFiles Pro license.

    HappyFiles Pro can now replace your SVG plugin πŸ™‚ Pro users can enable SVG upload, sanitization & preview in version 1.4+ via the HappyFiles settings.

    If you’ve been using the WP Media Folder (by JoomUnited) to manage your media files up until now, you can now import your WP Media Folder data with a single click into HappyFiles.

    In case you are using WPML or any other plugin that duplicates media files, and you are experience issues with your HappyFiles file counter, you can now enable the new “Alternative Count” setting. This should fix the counter issue, but it requires additional queries. So make sure to only enabled when really needed.

  • One-Click Importer, New Folder UI, Create Multiple Categories

    HappyFiles 1.3 focuses on saving you even more time and improve your media organizing workflow. You can now import folders created with other media folder plugins and delete their plugin data afterwards, all with one click. The importer works for the following plugins:

    • FileBird (v4)
    • Enhanced Media Library
    • Folders (by Premio)
    • Wicked Folders
    • Real Media Library

    When HappyFiles detects folder data created by one of the plugins above, you will see a notification in your WordPress dashboard. The importer is located under the “Import” tab on your HappyFiles settings page.

    If you have enabled “Assign multiple categories” you can now also enable the new “Enable to remove an item from all categories ” setting. This way when you uncategorize an item that has been assign to other categories it will automatically be uncategorized from all those folders.

    There is a new “Delete Plugin Data” button on the HappyFiles settings page, that allows you to delete all data stored by HappyFiles.

    We’ve gotten rid of the arrow icon for folders that contain sub folders. Folders with sub folders now have an icon with “+” indicator next to it. You can toggle sub categories by clicking on it.

    You can now create multiple categories at once, simply by comma separating your new category names.

    The folder previously collapsed when creating/deleting categories. It now stays in place.

    There is also no more page reload trigger when sorting your categories alphabetically.

    In terms of fixes the HappyFiles sidebar should now be clickable again when using it inside a media modal. Shortcode parameter are all working now for the happyfiles_gallery shortcode.

  • Sort Alphabetically, Better Category Inspector & Various Fixes

    Many of you have asked for alphabetical sorting. With this version you can finally auto-sort all your categories alphabetically (ascending and descending) by clicking the new three-dots icon next to the “Categories” title in the HappyFiles sidebar.

    The category inspector has been added to the list view (just right-click on any files/post, page, etc. to view all assigned categories). It nows also shows the category hierarchy for better inspection. If an item has no category then “Uncategorized” is shown, which is helpful when viewing “All Categories”.

    Your stored license key under Settings > HappyFiles is now hidden, so its safe to add to your client’s site without having to share your license key.

    A new setting named Disable AJAX (List View) is available. When set the AJAX-like results refresh in the media library’s list view is disabled. If you are using any plugin alongside HappyFiles that alters the media library’s output, such as Imagify, you might want to try enabling this setting, in case you are experience any issues.

    There are a few more fixes, which you can see below. As always, enjoy and thanks to everyone for making such great use of the new roadmap πŸ™‚

    Forgot which categories a file is in? Up until now you had to manually open each category to figure this out.

    I am super excited to announce the official release of HappyFiles. A WordPress plugin that helps you organise your entire media library files into categories via simple drag & drop.

    The free version of HappyFiles allows you to create up to 10 categories and is available for download via https://wordpress.org/plugins/happyfiles/. If you need unlimited categories and usage on all your sites feel free to grab the lifetime deal for HappyFiles Pro.

    HappyFiles excels in performance  and a great and  minimal UI/UX. More exciting features are added as time goes on and users submit ideas.

    Assets are only loaded on the relevant screens in the admin area and when editing a page with a page builder like Elementor, Divi, Beaver Builder, etc.

    HappyFiles categories a simple custom taxonomy terms. Your files and file paths are not altered in any way.

    You can directly upload new files to a specific category, and resize/toggle the category sidebar to your liking.

    In the admin area under “Settings > HappyFiles” you choose select which user role can manage media categories (Category Editing).

    I hope you enjoy this first release!
