Bulk Upload

Upload multiple images or files at once into DataObjects. Perfect for galleries and the like.

$config->addComponent(new \Colymba\BulkUpload\BulkUploader());


By default BulkUploader will write to the current stage (most likely Draft). To auto publish your DataObject, use the following param or config:

$config->addComponent(new \Colymba\BulkUpload\BulkUploader(null, null, true));



Your DataObject should own the Image/File relation so it is published at the same time: See SilverStripe DataObject ownership DOC

See for detailed configuration.

Bulk Manager

Perform actions on multiple records straight from the GridField

$config->addComponent(new \Colymba\BulkManager\BulkManager());

See for detailed configuration.
