We’ve updated our Chrome Dashboard plugin, which is a plugin that you can use if you use the Google Chrome browser. The update includes support for multi upload of files. We’ve also fixed directory sorting, and focus when creating new directories.
We’ve released the second of our WordPressPlug-Ins which enables users of different Cloud Storage Providers to make files available for download on a WordPress Blog.
The extension supports all the clouds that are available via the SMEStorage Gateway API which include Amazon S3, RackSpace Cloud Files, Box.net, Microsoft SkyDrive, MobileMe, GMail-as-a-Cloud, Email-as-a-Cloud, FTP-as-a-Cloud, and any WebDav compatible storage Cloud.
To enable your files to be shared on the WordPress Blog you need to make the files public within SMEStorage:
1. Use the SMEStorage File Manager to navigate to select files to make public. Please read this blog post for more information on how to do this. Files set to be public can then be made available from the Plug-In.
2. Login in to WP-Admin. At the bottom of your dasboard on the right hand side you will a ‘SMEStorage Public Files option’. Click on this. Here you can enter your SMEStorage username and how you want the files to be selected for display i.e. via tags you have assigned to them or * for all public files.
3. Now go to Appearance-Widgets and choose where you want the widget displaying your files to be.
The Plug-In was developed using the SMEStorage multi-cloud API.
The Plug-In is available for download from the WordPress extensions site.
The first independent release of the SMEStorage file Manager is now released and available for download on the OpenOffice.org extension site.
The extension enables you to open and save files directly to/from your primary SMEStorage cloud, be that Amazon S3, Gmail-as-a-Cloud, Email-as-a-Cloud, FTP-as-a-Cloud, Box.net, MobileMe, Mosso CloudFiles, WebDav Cloud, and now MIcrosoft Live SkyDrive also ( next post).
Once installed you will see a new SMEStorage toolbar which you can then use to open and save documents to your cloud of choice.
The extension currently works only for OpenOffice on windows but if enough people request it, we will also enable it to work on other OS’s also.
A SMEStorage account is required to use the plug-in.
You can view a video demo of the Plug-In on YouTube.
This plug-in is again based on our Multi-Cloud API.
Update: For those who had an issue saving file, please see this support thread.
