Is there a module that provides a multiple file upload (Drag and Drop) widget? If there isn't, how can I build one? Will it require a special setup for the server stack (LAMP)?

  • You mean select more than one file at a time? In 7 you can create a File field with unlimited number of values. Jul 30, 2012 at 21:07
  • No, I mean uploading several files at once. Aug 1, 2012 at 17:14
  • Can you describe a scenario? In Drupal 7's File field, set to unlimited values, you can add any number of files to be uploaded, and when you submit the form they will all get uploaded. Are you looking for the ability to select more than one at a time? Aug 2, 2012 at 14:00
  • Yes, I'd like to drag and drop a hundred photos to an Album node (for example). Aug 3, 2012 at 13:40

Multiupload FileField Widget

This is what you want. It enables the HTML5 standard for uploading multiple files. Use a normal file field but use this widget. Now one can select several files when browsing for files to upload. This works for never web browser but not IE8.
