How to add more than one image to the queue for uploading

You used to be able to add multiple image files from your PC/laptop for uploading by using the shift and/or control key..... and once uploading began you had a status bar telling how far along the process was.

However it appears that now you can only add one image at a time to the queue then click on the upload button..... this I have to say is extremely time consuming and very frustrating, especially for someone whos website is mainly image based.

Also after waiting 20 minutes my images still haven't uploaded, but I do not know how close this is to finishing if at all because I dont have a status bar anymore.

In simple terms please allow us to add multiple files for uploading rather than having to add them to the queue one at a time and please install some type of status bar so we know how far along the upload is

Thanks

I just tried that and it still works great for me.However when going from file manager to photo gallery the shift key works to select more than one photo but control no longer works for that function.

Howie - just tried it on my site and still works ok. Goto ""File manager"" > ""Upload Files" and hold down Ctrl key while selecting files. Or if you are selecting a row of files hold down the shift key and select the first and last file and all those in-between will also select.

(4 Kan Thai Decor) Are you talking about loading photographs from file manager in Yola to a photo gallery widget on your site.... if so... this is not what I am talking about.

I am talking about uploading photos from my laptop to a file created in file manager on yola.

Sooooo frustrated....... it just wont let me do it...... I can upload as many images as I like as long as add them to the queue one at a time...... which is mad.... my website has thousands of images..... each main page has got over 50 images (approx)

Do you guys get a status bar coming up showing how far along the upload process is....

Yes I do get a status bar.....Maybe you are exceeding how much you can upload at one time....I assume you have tried smaller batches
