Bug ID: 297012
Severity: wishlist
Version: 4.8.0
Priority: NOR
Assignee: konq-bugs@kde.org
Summary: allow file upload without individual confirmation for
specific target sites
Classification: Unclassified
OS: Linux
Reporter: FalkKroenert@gmx.net
Hardware: openSUSE RPMs
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Component: general
Product: konqueror

From a privacy/security viewpoint it may be sensible to have Konqueror ask for
user confirmation before uploading a file, however it becomes very annoying and
hindering if you are uploading more than a few files.
Example: I want to upload photos to my 23 gallery, for each photo this takes
about a minute to a minute and a half on my connection. Now, using a
gecko-based browser I can select a bunch of photos to upload and leave it
running unattended for some hours. But with Konqueror I have to sit in front of
the machine and click confirm every minute or so, without the possibility to do
other things in between.
My suggestion would be to allow for a "pre-confirmed" list of files to upload.
This could work like this: With the first confirmation you can add via a
standard KDE file dialog any number of files which will then be considered
already confirmed for subsequent uploads in this session and to the same
target. Not pre-confirmed files would be handled as they are now.
Another solution would be to disable confirmation for a specific upload target
alltogether, but I'm not that big of a fan of this, except as a temporary
workaround.
