Shared Files - uploading multiple files

I want to use the shared files feature to store several hundred pdf documents, in folders based on year.

I have created a folder structure, but now want to upload the files in bulk if possible.  I don't mind doing one folders' worth at a time, but I can not find a way to upload multiple files at a time, and doing it one file at a time will take forever!

I have checked out the documentation for the feature and it states the following:

Files must be uploaded using the Shared Files interface. You can not manually copy files to your server for use by the Shared Files module. The module uses NeatUpload to facilitate uploading multiple files at once.

I can't work out how to do this - can anyone help?

Re: Shared Files - uploading multiple files

NeatUpload will be used by default, but only if your site is running in Full Trust. If you are running in medium trust you won't be able to use it, unfortunately.

I'm not sure what the interface looks like in medium trust, but for us running in full trust, when you browse for files, you can select multiple documents at once in the Windows dialog (standard ctrl-click/shift-click to multiselect).

Re: Shared Files - uploading multiple files

Look under Administration > System Information

If it says "Full Trust" there then you can enable NeatUpload which is disabled by default by renaming Web.config to Web.mediumtrust.config and rename Web.fulltrust.config to Web.config and copy any customizations that you previously made into the new Web.config.

If it says "Partial Trust" you will not be able to use NeatUpload and will have to upload files one at a time.

Many thanks - my site is running in full trust, so I am amending web.config as suggested

Re: Shared Files - uploading multiple files

Just one minor bugbear - on a page with the Shared files feature and the Neatupload feature enabled, the "Add file..." button is not visible, but can be clicked - if I click just above the "Upload" button the file browse dialogue box opens up.  I have tried this on several different sites using different, unrelated skins - Artisteer-31-bluenwhite, mitchison-business3 etc

Viewing the page source shows the HTML below.  I have tried resetting the skin guid using the cache tool, to no effect.  If I click the "Upload" button with no file(s) selected, the "Add file" button flickers into existence, but then disappears again


<div class="settingrow"> <div class="settingrow fileupload"> <div id="ctl00_mainContent_ctl01_pnlUpload" class="settingrow uploadpanel" onkeypress="javascript:return WebForm_FireDefaultButton(event, &#39;ctl00_mainContent_ctl01_btnUpload&#39;)"> <div> <input id="ctl00_mainContent_ctl01_multiFile" type="file" name="NeatUpload_69DACFFA81A012BCBEDEB0DD02B693CB-ctl00$mainContent$ctl01$multiFile" /><div id='NeatUploadDiv_ctl00_mainContent_ctl01_multiFile' style='position: relative; display: none;'> <span class="art-button-wrapper"><span class="art-button-l"> </span> <span class="art-button-r"> </span> <input type="submit" name="ctl00$mainContent$ctl01$btnAddFile" value="Add File..." id="ctl00_mainContent_ctl01_btnAddFile" class="art-button" /> </span> </div> </div> <span class="art-button-wrapper"><span class="art-button-l"> </span> <span class="art-button-r"> </span> <input type="submit" name="ctl00$mainContent$ctl01$btnUpload" value="Upload" id="ctl00_mainContent_ctl01_btnUpload" class="art-button" /> </span> </div>
 

As I said, only a bugbear, but it would be confusing for users that I give permission to upload files
