Hi Is it possible to edit the File Block, so that instead of inputting a title field, it pulls the title and description from the file properties in file manager, so all you do is select the file and it does the rest?
Can it also pull the thumbnail used in the filemanager (less important)
You can either modify the main block view (view.php) or make a template out of it (copy it to /blocks/file/templates/view.php) and use the functions:
$f->getTitle() and $f->getDescription() to get the Title and Description of the file respectively.
In some earlier versions the title from file manager was automatically taken as default value for the title. This was very useful. I don't know why this feature was cacelled. It made it possible to use the dafault title as well as custom titles.
