Hey, today we have good news! Finally, Delo Design and NorrNext have released the long-awaited release of a popular media manager for Joomla which works on Joomla 4.

Meet Quantum Manager 2.0 for both Joomla 3 and Joomla 4! This release comes with extra new features, a lot of improvements and some bug fixes. The component works natively on Joomla 4 and also on earlier version 3.x.

New features:

  • The replacement of fields in the com_fields component temporarily does not work. In Joomla 4 there is no interception of modal windows from core file manager (com_media) except image selection in Article Edit mode. Joomla 3 retains all functionality.

Improved:

  • Error messages on file uploading error displays as notifications instead of modal window.
  • YOOtheme Pro integration plugin is automatically enabled.
  • Integration with Pixabay removed.

Bug fix:

  • Failed to upload file if maximum size of file upload param is limited on the server.
  • Loading of thumbnails is being processed in limited queues. The current logic: requests do not go all at once, but go in strict sequence in two streams when it is necessary to show 30 pictures from the grid.

Hotkeys list:

  • Delete - delete
  • F2 - rename
  • Ctrl+C/Cmd+C - copy
  • Ctrl+X/Cmd+X cut
  • Ctrl+V/Cmd+V - paste
  • Backspace - return back to the previous folder in navigation history
  • F5 - reload the list of files in the existing folder

To-do list:

2. Adaptive design. The existing version is not compatible with gadgets. We know about it and later it will be fixed.
3. WCAG support.
