Just updated to the 2.0-beta 3 version, but now I can't find the directory creation tool. Where did it go?

I was wondering the same thing. If you get an answer let me know. Thanks.

It appears that you don't need it. Adding directories in the settings will automatically create the directory when viewing the IMCE window.

@jjkiesh - The approach you mention isn't as efficient. My site has many different profiles and many of these directories. We're preemptively creating the directories before setting up the profiles. I'm probably going to be adding the directory creation tool back in via a patch. I'll post that here when I have it written.

Here's a patch to add the menu item back in. This patch also requires that you download the version 1 branch of IMCE and copy the imce/inc/subdir.inc into the version 2 with the name "imce.subdir.inc". It should work after that.

This tool was a solution to disability to assign multiple directories to users in IMCE 5.x.
Sorry, it will not be included in future releases.

Too bad. It was a nice feature of the module. I'm sure lots of people were making use of it.

I'm unclear on what replaces this. On the system I just installed I'm not seeing the behavior referenced at #2 -- that method simply doesn't work on this site. The only way to create directories is by using an external tool (shell, FTP or your hosting control panel's file manager).

Will this feature be re-introduced? I can't see the benefit in upgrading to 2.0 if it's not. I'll be uninstalling and downgrading the one site where I've tried it -- this basically makes it impossible for non-technical users to create new directories, at least as far as I can see.

Directory creation tool could only be used by site administrators. You should use imce_mkdir module to allow users create directories. OTH, the directories you define in IMCE profiles are automatically created on the first access to IMCE.

One could also run the old directory creation tool by including subdir.inc from 6.x-1.x.

include_once './PATH-TO-IMCE/inc/subdir.inc';
print drupal_get_form('imce_form_subdirectory');

Where would I put this like of codo to include the directory tool?

Create a page with the PHP input format and include the above code.

Was just about finished a patch to add in this functionality, but found this.
