    Digging into the code of the module, I just realized that the upload field used for an image is a FileField were is added a "special" preview if the file is an image. (at first it looks like a SimpleImageField ...)
    I think it would be interresting to use for image the ImageField as you would be abble to add images that are already in the assets.
    what do you think?

    Hi Laax

    The reason for using the FileField is quite simple: You can use it (more or less) for Files of any kind, not only images. In addition it has no JavaScript dependencies whatsoever that i would have to load inside the iframe. I don't know how well a ImageField (that is inside a iframe afaik) would work inside another iframe (created by the HasManyFileManager module).

    The idea of the HasManyFileManager clearly was to attach Files to a page. And to one page only. So there was no need to let the user choose from existing assets. Whenever a page is being deleted, the assets belonging to that page should be deleted as well...

    It seems like there is a need for a solution, that allows attaching some sort of "Documents" to a Page instead of just "Files". Maybe i'll develop a more general and multi-purpose solution than it is now. I'd really like to get rid of that iframe too

    Love the progress on this. Thanks again, Banal.

    For those of you looking to manage only images, you might want to check out my extension to the Gallery module here:

    http://www.silverstripe.com/extending-hacking-silverstripe-forum/flat/218462

    Uses drag-and-drop sorting, bulk uploading, caption editing, deleting, all from the front end.

    Hi, one question

    I am trying to get HasManyFileManager to use files uploaded via FTP / SS file admin section

    but obvisouly files added here don't create an entry in the file database (SiteTreeID and Grouping)

    I was thinking of adding fileselector field, has anyone done that ?

    Thanks

    it looks good. I wish that it will also allow you to add a link to a youtube, google video etc.. Which then you do not have to use the youtube option and create a separate page for the videos.

    Just my 2 cents.
