Question on bulk upload.
« on: October 05, 2008, 03:50:54 pm »
Hello folks,

I just bought Gallery Pro, and am loving it.  It installed easily, and works great with my SMF theme.  I appreciate the bulk upload feature, but am wondering if I can utilize it to upload a zipped file of pics.  I want to put up a movie poster gallery on my message board, and have nearly 3,000 posters, organized in folders 0-9, A, B, ...,Z.

If I zip each of these up, can I upload the zipped files so I don't have to select each file in each folder one at a time?

My apologies in advance for being "that guy" who doesn't have the patience to wade through page after page of threads and search results to see if anybody already asked a similar question.   ::)

Currently does not support zip files might in the future with a php extension. You can place the folders in the ftp folder inside the gallery folder then import them using batch ftp which allows you to import them into a category of your choice.

Great, sounds good to me!  All I have to do now is try to figure out why my transfers are failing.  One folder, for instance, only has 20 images; but only one image in the bunch transfers successfully while the others fail.  I'll have to tinker around with it a bit.

I'm using FileZilla.  When I try to transfer one of the problem files individually, I get the same error: could not start transfer.  I checked with my webhost, and the upload limit is 5MB on any one single upload.

But if I can get it to work, it looks like this will be almost as convenient as zipping them over.

Okay, I figured out what I was doing wrong with my FTP; I had spaces in some of my file names.  Perfectly good for viewing on my computer, perfectly good for uploading through Gallery Pro's bulk add.  NOT so good when trying to FTP for the sake of Batch Add.   ::)

But now that that's fixed, the Batch Add function really is the way to go.  So neat and easy, there really wouldn't be that much more work saved with zipping them up and zapping them that way.  For the time being, Batch Add is making me a very happy man indeed.

Again, thank you for a really sweet product.  WELL worth the $50/year license fee.   Happy to fork it over; and I'm a cheap-skate who doesn't say that often.  ;D

Glad it worked. Will look into the issue of importing pictures with batch add that have spaces.

That would be sweet, because then there would be no additional work needed to chop up words in order to have functional title search; especially handy with movie titles as file names for poster images.  Also, with spaces being able to be retained, you could then work on auto-importing them into keyword fields, which would be even HANDIER.  Again, especially handy with things like movie titles.

Of course, I've only just begun playing with Gallery Pro; maybe some of this stuff is already worked out by others here.
