Let's face it, it was never the best package in the first place :-(
This package contains a user control and macro which combine to allow direct file uploads to a pre-defined media folder from the web site front-end.
The user control itself is a simple wrapping of a (hidden) ASP.NET FileUpload control within an HTML form, with a CSS styleable label acting as the visual upload button. Clicking on the latter item triggers the FileUpload control, which in itself causes a form submit when a file has been selected. The back-end creates a new media item from the uploaded file at the correct location in the media tree, and also creates a jpg thumbnail image where appropriate.
This control was developed to offer an alternative to the excellent Gecko Uploadify control in scenarios where Flash is unavailable (i.e. iOS devices) and builds upon great forum examples given by Nik Wahlberg and Paul Sterling.
The macro comes with the following options:
Comma separated list of file extensions allowed by the control.
The prompt text to the left of the upload button.
The text which appears to the right of the upload button after a successful upload has occurred.
The text which appears to the right of the upload button after an unsuccessful upload has occurred.
The target media folder ID where the uploaded file will be logically stored by Umbraco.
The pop-up alert message which appears after an unsuccessful upload.
The pop-up alert message which appears after an invalid file type has been selected.
The pop-up alert message which appears after a successful upload.
