Hi, If I create a new page using the template "File List" then I can import a whole lot of files for others to browse or search using labels etc.
I can also include a small text summary of the file using the "Properties" button.
When browsing it is often the thumbnail view or the text summary that is useful, rather than the file name.
But the thumbnail and text summary is hidden behind an expand arrow like this ">". So if I am scrolling through a list of 100 images I can't just choose by image.
Hey Robert, replying your questions:
"Is it possible to "expand all" either by default or at the click of a button (e.g. perhaps another macro on the page that opened all the list items)?"
"The text summary (actually called "comment") in the file properties is limited to a very small amount of text (about 1.5 lines). Is there a way to increase this limit?"
Not trough the UI. For this one you would need to customize the plugin code.
"Would it be possible to consider putting the summary text (the comment) on the expanded view rather than having to click "properties" to read the summary - e.g. like this?"
Nope but that is a neat idea, I will raise a feature request for that one and update it in here soon .
You could expand them all with a user macro fairly simply. Just put this on the same page as an attachments macro and it will expand all of the items. FYI, you may want to uncheck the "Show previews" option on the attachments macro ... especially if the page has lots of attachments. Leaving it checked could affect system performance as it would try to generate the thumbnail for all of the attachments at the same time.
Macro Body Processing:
No macro body
Thanks Deividi - That's helpful - pity about the expand all bit (it's like google images - i.e. you really want to see the image. In fact it would be even better because you can see the first page of the document if it's a PDF - Google doesn't give you that!)
But thanks for the the improvement request ticket - much appreciated. Plus your picture is much funnier than my picture above, which isn't funny at all really
I'd encourage others to visit the page, see the funny pic and vote up the request!
