Feature request - Ability to rename files in file manager

Reported by dleffler | January 9th, 2012 @ 07:18 PM | in 2.2.4 (closed)

This would rename the file on the server, not just give it a new title.

    While this could easily be implemented by adding file renaming code to fileController::editTitle and change the file title and filename simultaneously....a bigger issue would be that the file is referred to by url/filename and renaming it will break the link in any html body text.

    Perhaps the best approach is to encourage renaming the file BEFORE it is uploaded!

    We may wnat to make better use of the 'Title' field of the expFile record, currently only used (sometimes) in photo album

    We have made the implementation of the file title/alt fields more robust across the modules

    FWIW, we have this feature in the new elFinder file manager...THOUGH it will break any existing LINKS to files (not refs to files, but those embedded into rich text)
