bulk import / import from folders on web server
« on: November 30, 2010, 03:21:00 pm »
I searched the question here, but found no answer.

I have a gallery2 install I want to import pictures from the individual users folders into their new smf gallery pro member galleries.

- Which my other question is do the members have to create their own galleries, or is it automatic?

I saw bulk import / import from folders on web server as a feature, but cannot seem to find it. The only one I can find(under batch add) looks hardcoded for public_html/smf/gallery/ftp/

Maybe I am looking in the wrong place. Other then that I can find uploading from local PC....

Help,

Scott

For importing there are three options
Import option on a category. Takes any pictures placed inside the gallery/import folder and adds them to that category.

Batch FTP method gives more control over the import option allows to see the images before you import them and see folders as well. You can select which category or user gallery they are put into.
This accepts any files/folders added to the gallery/ftp folder

Last there is the bulk upload option which you can select files from your local computer to import.


- Which my other question is do the members have to create their own galleries, or is it automatic?
If members have the personal gallery person for SMF Gallery they have the option to create their own gallery. The gallery is automatically made they would just need to create their own categories and their picture.s

Few questions, not trying to be slow....

For importing there are three options
Import option on a category. Takes any pictures placed inside the gallery/import folder and adds them to that category.

Is this the hardcoded : public_html/smf/gallery/ftp/ folder under batch add? Or is it selectable somehow?

Thanks,
Scott

Currently it is hardcoded to look at that path. If you need it or wish to point somewhere else I can add a setting for it and may have that update released later tonight.

Are you saying you could make is so I can switch or browse directories? That would be an amazing feature, as I have at least 100 different folders with user pictures...It would make grabbing images from Gallery2 or coppermine very very easy for me.....I'm sure a lot of folks would like this to cut over to SMF Gallery....The other Galleries and bridges just never worked seamlessly for me like SMF Gallery seems to...

- Which my other question is do the members have to create their own galleries, or is it automatic?
If members have the personal gallery person for SMF Gallery they have the option to create their own gallery. The gallery is automatically made they would just need to create their own categories and their picture.s

Personal Gallery person??? None of my members have created galleries yet. That was what I wan unsure of. If they do not create a personal gallery, they can/will upload into a general gallery? I mean, a user gallery is not auto created based on user name when they first upload?

Thanks,

Scott

Yeah planning on adding another path setting on settings page to control where batch add is dispalyed.

Personal Galleries are accessed either by the user clicking their "MyGallery" tab or browsing the members galleries main category.
Users as long as you let them with permissions always have the option to upload to a general category/gallery

Path selection would be VERY VERY COOL....Buying the pro version earlier today was a WAY better use of time/money then figuring out G2 and coppermine bridging again....Man those gave me issues over the years...

BTW, your mod was recommended(thankfully) to me by the guys over at SMFservices.....

Very cool....

As a new user, how do I upgrade and where on this site is it?

I tried re-downloading from the link I recieved after purchase, but SMF knows it exists already....

I also went to the doc @ http://www.smfhacks.com/smfgallery/help/

It did not mention upgrading....

Thanks,
Scott
