WordPress Plugin: Drag & Drop File Uploader


Meine SoftwareThe workflow to upload files in WordPress has always been cumbersome. Since a few browsers now support the new HTML5-Filereader-API I created a wordpress-plugin based on Sebastian Tschan’s excellent jQuery File Uploader which makes adding files a snap.

It adds a box below the post-editor on which you can drag and drop files directly from your filemanager. Images are added directly to the current post. You can even drop multiple files on it at the same time.

This is the first release of the plugin and I know that there are still some problems, but I’ll try to iron them out and improve the plugin further.

If you have any ideas or like this plugin as much as I do feel free to drop a comment.
