Discussion for the elFinder plugin for Cotonti

#1 14.05.2012 20:47

I've just released the elFinder plugin for Cotonti. See the plugin page for more details.

Use this topic to post your feedback on the plugin.

It hasn't been tested properly yet, so report bugs here if you find them. I'll fix them in a few days.

You can also request some features, though I can't promise I can implement them all. For example, I can't change elFinder behavior itself. And I can't make it paste file URL in the page file field (but I'll try to implement it a bit later). There is already one thing in my TODO list for this plug: add a global tag to insert a button that opens elFinder dialog anywhere on site.

May the Source be with you!

Does this only work with elRTE and HTML parsing?

#5 15.05.2012 20:47

Currently yes. I'll try to add support for more editors and parsers later.

This PFS killer works just fine. User folders, renaming files, crop / resize -- fills the gap for a user friendly image manager.

Very nice! :D Thank you!

But what do you mean by not-so-good security? It bothers me even if I'm going to use it for my own.

Added 2 minutes later:

BTW, for an old file upload in a webpage, the attachment plugin is far better anyway, don't you think that file upload is obsolete? Wouldn't it be better just to work on attachments plugin to be connected to PFS or something like this?

By not-so-good security I mean that PFS has been proved over years to be very secure even on communities with thousands of members (some of which definitely try to hack it from times to times), while elFinder is a rather new creation and hasn't been attacked hard enough yet. Anyways, I've done my best to implement basic security features on this plugin, so it's absolutely safe to use yourself or in small trusted teams. Use it in communities too, but for a slightly higher risk.

Attachments need a revamp. I haven't had a chance for it so far.

May the Source be with you!

How about integration with CKEditor? :)


Might be fast&easy for you. CKEditor has less bugs than elRTE, having elFinder for it would be great.

P.S. Also please take into consideration this: (for Chrome)

Thank you for plugin :) I want to ask something. When we upload image, system dont use GD Library right ? because image file size didnt change. How we can use GD Library to optimize images with quality (85) ?
