Extended File Manager EFM

Version 1.1 created from 1.0 beta by Krzysztof Kotowicz


Extended File Manager is an advanced plugin for Xinha

It works in two different modes.

  1. Insert Image Mode and
  2. Insert File Link Mode.

In Insert Image Mode, it replaces the basic insert image functionality of Xinha with its advanced image manager.

If Insert File Link Mode is enabled, a new icon will be added to the toolbar with advanced file linking capability.

Complete Features

(Most of the features can be enabled/disabled as needed)


Installing involves extracting the archive to ‘plugins’ subdirectory of Xinha and selecting the plugin in appropriate xinha_plugins list.

Plugin may be configured via xinha_config.ExtendedFileManager object. You can find the available options here.

// only snippets of code from initializing file shown below

  xinha_plugins = xinha_plugins ? xinha_plugins :
   /*'ImageManager',*/  // replace image manager with EFM


//If you don't want to add a button for linking files and use only the advanced ImageManager
xinha_config.ExtendedFileManager.use_linker = false;
// pass the configuration to plugin
if (xinha_config.ExtendedFileManager) {
   	with (xinha_config.ExtendedFileManager)

            // define backend configuration for the plugin
            $IMConfig = array();

            $IMConfig['allow_upload'] = true;

            $IMConfig['images_dir'] = '<images dir>';
            $IMConfig['images_url'] = '<images url>';
            $IMConfig['files_dir'] = '<files dir>';
            $IMConfig['files_url'] = '<files url>';

            $IMConfig['thumbnail_prefix'] = 't_';
            $IMConfig['thumbnail_dir'] = 't';
            $IMConfig['resized_prefix'] = 'resized_';
            $IMConfig['resized_dir'] = '';
            $IMConfig['tmp_prefix'] = '_tmp';
            $IMConfig['max_filesize_kb_image'] = 2000;
            // maximum size for uploading files in 'insert image' mode (2000 kB here)

            $IMConfig['max_filesize_kb_link'] = 5000;
            // maximum size for uploading files in 'insert link' mode (5000 kB here)

            // Maximum upload folder size in Megabytes.
            // Use 0 to disable limit
            $IMConfig['max_foldersize_mb'] = 0;
            $IMConfig['allowed_image_extensions'] = array("jpg","gif","png");
            $IMConfig['allowed_link_extensions'] = array("jpg","gif","pdf","ip","txt",

            require_once '/path/to/xinha/contrib/php-xinha.php';

Please note that by default allow_upload is false and uploading is not permitted, you MUST set it true in the config as is indicated above in order to allow uploading. - author of EFM 1.0 beta - EFM 1.1 (most of the code taken from Xinha codebase)
