This plugin generates a drop-down list including all images from Textpattern`s own images managment.
You can select the selected image as article image or add it into article’s body or excerpt with the build-in tagbuilder

There is a preview for already saved article images.

There are also some German informations on my site

really really cool. :) thanks
Nice. I like this even better than the image popper one.
Thank You so much. This should be in the TXP core, or do You know which id belongs to which image before looking to the images-tab?
Nice~ Thank you for writing up this code.

URL is dead…


does not work for textpattern 4.0.5

new version (0.8) works fine in 4.0.5 now

Doesn’t work for me in txp 4.0.6…

txp4.0.6 requires privs be set for admin plugins. Just edit and add:
add_privs(‘bas_img_selector_install’,‘1,2’); in the part after if (@txpinterface == ‘admin’) {


Sara, thank you for supplying the line of code to add to set the privs to permit the plug-in to work in 4.0.6. Being lazy, I cut and paste it into the requisite spot and found that the plug-in then fell over. Solution was to delete all the existing “ ‘ “ from your line of code and re-type them in so that they actually were “ ‘ “ and not the smart pretty version that doesn’t work in code. Apologies for the non-technical explanation but I hope it helps.
