Ignore certain file types
« on: March 13, 2013, 03:22:13 AM »

Hi, quick question: is there a way, when using the Admin's batch upload tool, to skip over or ignore certain file types? 

For example, when I upload my folders using FTP, those folders usually contain some trash files like picasa.ini, thumbs.db, and some about.txt text files for my own personal use.  When I use the batch upload, CPG wants to add those miscellaneous file types to my album.  Although I can manually un-check those particular files from being added, it gets very tiring after awhile.  Thus, is there a way for Coppermine to intelligently ignore those files?

By the way, yes, I've gone to look at the Config > File Settings > Allowed file types

Unfortunately, I see no way to tell Coppermine to skip certain files like picasa.ini and thumbs.db

They'll be skipped automatically. Instead of the tick icon you'll get a radar icon with a title like

Yes I see the radar icon but the batch uploading process stops on that page, instead of automatically moving to the next page to edit individual files.

I think we could automatically uncheck unsupported file types at the batch-add form. I'll try to create a mod as soon as possible.

Open searchnew.php, find
Code: [Select]
$checked = isset($expic_array[$picfile_replaced_forbidden]) ? '' : 'checked="checked"';and replace with
Code: [Select]
$checked = isset($expic_array[$picfile_replaced_forbidden]) || !is_known_filetype($pic_fname) ? '' : 'checked="checked"';
Please report if it works as expected.

Wouldn't the easiest solution be to upload only the image file?

Sure, but some people don't upload pictures to their (external) gallery, but use already existing file/folder structure and/or need to keep the other files in their directories.
