Hey Not a defect/issue or bug, more of a feature request (directed here by Robert Wetzlmayr - see http://twitter.com/rwetzlmayr/status/3683019124). Could be pipe dream stuff but definitely something I think that would be an improvement to the textpattern CMS. I love textpattern. One of the key pluses for me that is missing in a lot of other CMS's is how TXP separates content and presentation. I love the grouping of files, images and links as separate _kinds_ of content and the ease with which these can be associated with individual articles (through custom fields, for example). However, I *wish* that files were more flexible and there was: # the ability to rename files, and/or # the ability to have an alternative title for a file Thinking here how TXP treats images (and wondering why files are treated so differently). Hope this makes sense - it is the one ommission/frustration for me (apart from section hierarchy) in an otherwise lovely CMS :) Cole http://cole007.net/

For a recent client project I modded TXP to add a file Title and I agree it makes a world of difference. Adding the title is not a major undertaking -- a few mods to the Files tab and a new client tag to output it -- so I'll take ownership of this one as I've pretty much done it already. As for renaming files, we'll take a look at what can be done, though that one's a bit more involved...

Or at least, half-resolved. File titles were added in r3304. The ability to rename files will have to wait for a rainy day...
