Bug Description

It is currently only possible to upload a single file at a time from the web interface. It would be more usable if you could upload a batch of files. This esp important if there isn't a Windows or Mac client any time soon.

Uploading a batch of files or indeed a whole sub-folder would be of crucial importance. I wanted to upload a folder with about 100 files and I am not likely to upload those 100 files individually.

Would really like this feature. I would like to have a "home page" backed up that would include a folder with all the pictures and what not. The ability to point to a folder and have it grab the whole thing.

Couldn't agree more - it is nowhere near as useful without this feature.

John, I am reassigning this to you as this is much more complicated than changing the web ui.

Agree w/ @Larko... There should be a facility of uploading multiple files or folders at a time instead of uploading a single file! Hope it will be available soon...!

  It is possible that this is a problem with Nautilus. be cause it happen with others websites as well like orkut.com.br. you try to select multiple files (Pictures) and you cant, But if you try do the same on the same website and browser on Windows PC it works fine. so it doesn't sounds like and website issue but a file manager issue.

Please send me an e-mail with the solution cause my wife is driving me crazy with this.

Thanks a lot

@Thiago: No, it's not a nautilus problem, as I tried it from Windows XP and it didn't work.

I think the developers should allow a multi-select dialog. It's probably the most intuitive way for the user.

This is now possible with the new file uploader. See the attached image.
Give it a try.
