“Default modal view?” for file directories doesn’t work…

Version: 3.5.10 Reporter: directordash

I’m not sure where I’m meant to see the “default modal view” in operation when set to thumbnails, but I have two image only directories, both of which are showing as lists wherever I have file fields; essentially tripling the time it’s taking to complete a project, because I need to see the thumbnails to know which file to use.

Please advise!!

  • I think I see what’s happening- the default view only applies when a file field is limited to that specific file upload directory.

    If you have it set to ‘Allow All’ it will default to list view, even when you select the directory. But if you have only that directory selected, then it honors the default.

    Is that what you’re seeing? If so, I agree. When you switch to the directory in the dropdown, it should default to the default view.
