#10383 closed defect (fixed)

Features dissappeared: "Description of the file" and "Replace existing attachment of the same name"

Reported by: Richard Lyders Owned by: Jun Omae
Priority: high Component: TracDragDropPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


This could be considered an enhancement, but since existing features dissappeared by installing the "Drag-and-Drop Attachments Plugin for Trac", I consider this a defect.

I loved this plug-in...for the brief period of time I was able to use it before I was told to disable it because it removed existing features that everyone uses here. The abilities to enter a description and control whether or not a new attachment replaces an existing attachment of the same name are very useful features for us.

I checked for a configuration or documentation regarding this and I haven't seen anything so far. I guess I am surprised that I don't see anything about the absence of these features. If I have time I may work on adding these features myself, but not sure when I might have time for this.

Great pug-in. I just wish I could use it. :-(

This bit me as well. I got feedback that through updated one can at least have it always replace attachments as they are uploaded:
