How to call and access SP Media Manager / File Browser?

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hello, I am curious about your own FileBrowser / MediaManager.
Is there any technical way to check and use the file browser?

Basically, I had the idea to load it as a replacement for the current J! core MediaManager.
Either in a media field override...
Or to improve your simple upload file field in Helix3 Blog Options.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your kind information. But, Helix blog option used ajax & crop image option. That's why it's not possible to implement new media manager, Like as browse from media. By the way, we will think about it in future.

This feature controlled by Template manager blog tab

I see. The current featured image upload is quite limited. Basic. Would be nice to have drag-and-drop, too.
The gallery upload is a single upload?! It should allow multiple files.

An optional media file browser would be awesome. Not to mention: ACL support. (something that lacks the J! core media manager very badly)


What about other locations than blog options? Is it possible to call and use your file browser at all?
For instance in a media-field override? Or a custom field?
