Bug Fixes

Bug Fixes

  • No error message to users when uploading non-zip file.


  • Bulk Upload Wizard Dialog - ZIP file Upload - Drag & Drop


Bug Fixes

  • When overwriting image asset, it’s removing and recreating, which may cause invalid mirror links.
  • The bulk uploader does not support SVGs.
  • Using zip files, many temp files are being created (Example: _macosx directories).
  • UI popup thrown when switching from the Images to the Documents view.


  • Bulk Upload Wizard should work on non-image assets as well.
  • The example event listener (creating associated documents) has been improved and more simplified.

Known issues

  • An UI popup issue, prompting "There was a problem updating the tree. It might be caused be the old page being cached by the browser. It is recommended to reload the page. Do you want to reload it?", is not necessarily a problem. It looks like a designed behavior of Apache Wicket when many tree nodes were added under the hood and the page cached in the client browser cannot be automatically updated, rather giving end users options to reload the page. (ref:[email protected]/msg00065.html)
  • Drag and drop a ZIP file is not supported yet.



  • Initial release.
  • Support "Add bulk images..." context menu item on gallery folder, which allows users to upload a ZIP file containing multiple folders and image files.
  • Support "Overwrite" and "Publish" options in upload UIs.
  • Post a gallery (synchronous) event on gallery content creation or update.
  • Demo project showing the features and gallery event listener which creates an associated image container document on image creations or updates.

Known issues

  • "Add bulk files" context menu item for assets (non-image files) are not supported yet.
  • When "overwrite" option is selected, the plugin removes an existing gallery resource and creates a new gallery resource at the moment. This could cause unresolvable image mirror link node error. It should be fixed soon to update image content only.
  • Drag and drop a ZIP file is not supported yet.
