Note that with the
dmx-upload-dialog plugin you can upload files only to the file repo root directory. You neither can upload to arbitrary file repo folders, nor can you create new folders. The main benefit of the
dmx-upload-dialog plugin is actually its file processing capabilities by the means of plugable “file handlers”, e.g. dmx-import-export, dmx-images, and dmx-csv.
If you need these file processing capabilities use the
dmx-upload-dialog plugin (and install
dmx-file-upload as well, as pointed out by @mukil). On the other hand, if you just want maintain the server-side DMX file repo (upload files to arbitrary folders, create new folders) use the
dmx-file-upload plugin instead. The
dmx-upload-dialog plugin is not needed then.
We at DMX are aware the existence of two “upload” plugins is the source for confusion. This situation exists for historical reasons. At the time
dmx-upload-dialog was introduced there was no
dmx-file-upload yet. Meanwhile the conceptualization of the
dmx-upload-dialog plugin is regarded obsolete.
Tasks on the part of the DMX team:
- Redesign the
dmx-upload-dialog plugin. Its file processing capabilities should be separated from the actual upload operation.
- Update the DMX website. At the moment the
dmx-file-upload plugin does not appear on the Plugins page.
- Update chapter Plugin Documentation of the DMX docs. At the moment the
dmx-upload-dialog explanation is incomplete, and
dmx-file-upload is not explained at all.
Thank you, @zhlbb for addressing these issues!
