  • Tag support
  • Version control for your media
  • Image editing features, including resizing and cropping
  • Ability to publish/unpublish media with reference-checking
  • Support for TinyMCE, TV's, ContentBlocks
  • Metadata for images out of the box: id, version, filename, version, author, dimensions (original + cropped image size), category, tags)

Instructions

Migrating from the default media browser

A migration tool is not yet available. You will not lose your old images, but they also will not show up in the new media browser.

Installation

  • Install the package through package management by uploading the latest version from the _packages folder.
  • You have to enable the Media Manager per MediaSource. Go to the top-menu "Media" -> "Media Sources" -> "Create property": Name=mediamanagerSource, Type=Textfield, Value=1
  • Now enable it per user by editing a user: "Manage" -> "Users" -> Edit a user -> "Settings" -> "Create new" and set the key and/or name to "media_sources_id" and set the value to the ID of the Media Source you just enabled.
