Subject: Can a user upload multiple files without going into edit mode?
I am trying to create a page where a user can upload a number of files. I am using the Bureaucracy plugin to create a form and a template to create a page as a result. This plugin allows a use to select a file to be uploaded, however this is limited to 1 file at a time. The Drag and Drop plugin allows multiple files to be selected and dragged in - but needs to be done while in edit mode - which I do not want the user to have to do. Is there any method that could be used to allow a user to run the media manager or otherwise upload files (like what you see form the media upload in the editor) . I have also tried the upload plugin but it also was only allowing one file to be selected at a time?

Any ideas or suggestions please?

You can use media manager without being in edit mode - by clicking on the media manager link, which is near the search field in the DokuWiki template.

I was hoping to keep everything within one page so that he user has a simpler overall experience. Agreed - getting them to use media manager would work but it not as streamlined as I had been hoping. Does anyone know what stops the upload plugin from accepting multiple files in the way that media manager does - the source code appears so similar I don't see what is preventing it.
