One of my other sites is a baby blog that my wife and I maintain for friends and family to keep in touch and read about my daughter. We’re routinely uploading about 20 images per post. Until recently, the site was running WordPress 1.2, and the uploading was handled by a fiercely hacked copy of WordPress’ image upload page that allowed an arbitrary number of images to be uploaded at once.
I updated the site to WordPress 2 last weekend, so I decided to do the image uploading page properly, as a plugin. It seemed to work out, so I’m posting the result now.
Update: Information on the Batch image uploader plugin is now on its own page.
