Using elFinder

    Zenphoto features a file manager plugin named elFinder for files outside the gallery and its albums. To use it on content fields like descriptions etc. you also need to enable the TinyMCE plugin. On the elFinder plugin options you also need to enable it for usage with TinyMCE.

    You can then upload, delete and manage files. The files are stored within the root /uploaded folder.

    If enabled, the elFinder is available on the Upload tab.

    Note that whenever you use elFinder you work directly on the items on the file system. Actions like sizing are destructive.

    You can select several items but you can only insert one at a time via TinyMCE.
