FS#2664 500 images media manager crash can't upload images
After 500 images in one directory you will not be uploading anything as the PC grinds to a half attempting to load them everytime the media manager is pressesd on the toolbar.
Possible easy fix implement pagnation and not load all the files just 10 or so.
Until this is fixed, in order to upload pics I have to copy paste them into the media directory manually.
The proper solution would probably be to sort your media files into namespaces. With or without pagination, finding an image between 500 others is no fun
We had the idea today to probably best display a warning message when a certain limit is reached (200?). Something like "The number of images in this namespace exceeds the recommended limit, please try organizing your images in various namespaces." On the one hand it will still give users the possibility to add more images if they really wanted to, but on the other hand it also makes clear that we cannot guarantee it will work as expected.
