Valid upload formats should be declared to user.

Each of the media upload pages should list the valid file formats it supports and possibly other constraints like max filesize, max pixel dimensions, copyright and content limitations.

The importance of the information needed corresponds to the strictness of kete’s technical enforcement of the limitation. So format and filesize are most important as governing “rules” and the rest, at present, are more like guidelines.

Without info on the upload page, the user is left to find out via trial and error.

    This sounds like a good idea. As I have mentioned in email, since allowed content types and max file size maybe changed by a technical administrator, this will require a bit of coding to display in a human friendly form. Nothing major, just something that decodes ‘image/tiff’ to ‘TIFF file’, etc.

    However, although how it stands is lacking in UI refinement, it is not a bug, so any work to make this happen will be in trunk.

    Also, we’ll be beginning on work for an acts_as_licensed Ruby on Rails plugin to be included in Kete to be able to provide licensing options for an item in Kete. Essentially users will be able to choose from an administrator defined set of licenses when they create an item (and all subsequent contributors to the item will have to agree to it). In the first case Creative Commons licenses. Again, this will be in trunk as it is new functionality.
