drop and drag on firefox 9.01
I,m using Nuxeo 5.5 with no modifications on Ubuntu-server 11.10
on the client i use firefox 9.01 os = opensuse 12.1
When i use the firefox plugin the drag and drop function for folders it seems not to work. when i select a single file it's working fine do.
- log in as any user
- go to personal workspace.
- drag and drop an folder in your personal workspace.
You see now that the upload is in progress, only nothing is happening. uploading a folder to the clipboard and workspace.
Are you sure you are using the Nuxeo FF plugin? If installed, the plugin should display a “Plugin Disabled” message in the status bar.
Since 5.4.2, Nuxeo is using HTML5 which doesn't allow folder drag and drop. See how-make-drag-n-drop-with-folder-functionnal.
This will seriously impede the usability and user acceptance from nuxeo. We need a user friendly, (self service) solution. We want users upload there own data (folders and files). And i talk about a lot of users and data here. So is there a simple way (no IE8) for a user with no computer knowledge to upload his/her data? Or is there a solution in one of the next nuxeo releases?
