Title: Uploading more pictures at once!?
Post by: matic on November 28, 2003, 07:01:48 pm
Yes, I saw and tested option to upload pics over ftp and then import them into db, but i don't wanna put ftp acces to all memmbers. Neither all memmber knows how tu use ftp.
So it would be VERY greate to do a way to upload a more pics at once! In form option to browse for more files at once and submitting that form?!

Is there mybe allready that kind of solution or hack?

this has been requested before and is in the making. Meanwhile, take a look at the xp_publishing wizard - doesn't solve all your problems, but those of users running Windows XP.

Title: multiple images upload

The possibility to upload multiple pictures would be really nice.

Either a form with many file/title/description fields (5, 10 ore more) or the possibility to upload a zip file full of images.

Cheers,
Marius

I am also interested in seeing a feature added for uploading of multiple pictures AND I am willing to (atleast attempt to) develop it over my christmas break.  This will be my OSS patch debut, so is there anything I need to know?  Is your project aiming to be fully compatible with PHP Safe Mode or am I allowed to break that with my patch?  I am planning on allowing users to upload a zip/rar full of jpgs and have each optionally resized and added to a specified album.  Does this sound in order?

@cybrpnkr: any hack is welcome, even if it requires safe_mode to be turned off.

@mariuss: Coming up with an html form that allows multiple pics to be selected is not the problem, the server-sided magic is the stuff that troubles me - if anyone can come up with a decent hack, you're also welcome.
You can see a demo for such a form that has been ripped from the gallery script w-nailer (http://wnailer.vddh.com/) here: http://gaugau.de/partner/cpg/upload/upload.htm (bear in mind, it just shows the pic selection on the html/dhtml front-end, it doesn't do anything yet when you click on "Upload"). This script's source code can't be used as code base, as it's the intelectual property of Willem (the author of w-nailer), so the page is just some sort of "proof-of-concept" thing.

Hi Gaugau,

I did not realize that uploading multiple files could be tricky. I have seen this feature in phpGallery and that is why I was suggesting it.

While scanning the PHP documentation I saw that there is special support in PHP for multiple file uploads, but probably you know that. Here is what I found:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.multiple.php

Also there are Java applets that can help with this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/jupload/
http://www.haller-systemservice.net/jupload/

As for zip file uploading here is the php documentation:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.zip.php

I hope these links help.

Cheers,
Marius

Wow, I never saw those Java Applets before. JUpload, I like the name and it worked with Mozilla.

I want to add one more to the list:

@Freez: stop spamming the board with ibulc adverts. We got your message, and you got the answer from Tarique. I'll delete all further ibulc-related postings...

Sorry GauGau, did not mean to offend you, I thought I was just listing a feature request. Anyway, by all means, remove the posts. I did not want to do the wrong thing.
