Drag & drop uploader

The drag & drop uploader normally requires a Java compliant browser. For some browsers (Firefox version 4 and up, Chrome version 7 and up), Java is no longer necessary.

If you intend to use the drag & drop uploader, you have to activate it first:

      If you are not using recent versions of Firefox or Chrome, make sure that your Web browser supports Java (via Java Plug-in) and that this func­tionality is indeed activated,

      click  Options    Preferences  in your top menu bar,

      mark the check box Use drag&drop uploader for file upload in the ‘General’ section of the action form and confirm with [OK].

After activation, a specific upload icon will be placed prominently in the header section of your fol­der pages (see Figure 33). Just drop a file or group of files onto this icon for up­load to the cur­rent folder. Note that the drag & drop uploader is not available for all plat­forms and browsers.
