UploaderPrefs for Melody and Movable Type allows customization of the default options involved in uploading files and images.
I don’t like the default “Asset Upload” default options, which is to create a new entry, and to place the file in the root directory.
Set your preferences in the plugin settings. Currently it supports two options, which can be set independently:
CREATE ENTRY WITH FILE OPTION
The plugin default is for the “Create new entry with file” option to be deselected. (Melody’s default is for that checkbox to be selected).
ASSET UPLOAD DIRECTORY
The MT default option is the site or archive root. UploaderPrefs default path is based on the date.
These options may also be over-ridden within the upload dialogue.
Drop the contents of the “plugins” directory into your application’s (Melody or MT) plugin directory.
I’d like to add other options, such as a default directory.
