New version 3.8.5 of WordPress File Upload plugin has just been released.
This release is an important update as it introduces Bulk Actions in all file browsers/viewers of the plugin. For the moment the front-end and back-end file viewers support one bulk action, Delete. The user can select multiple files by checking the checkboxes next to each file and delete them all at once.
The admin File Browser in the Dashboard supports two bulk actions, Delete and Include. Include action enables the admin to include in the plugin’s database many files at once that are displayed in the File Browser but were not uploaded by the plugin.
This release has also included provisions for adding a simple search bar above the front-end file viewer, so that users can narrow the file list.
This feature is experimental and not straightforward for the moment. A new article will be published the next days providing details how to create simple search bars like this.
Furthermore, this release introduces some improvements in the column sort functionality of all the file browsers/viewers of the plugin.
You can check more details in the Release Notes of the plugin’s support page.
