Hi-

If I have a spreadsheet that lists for each filename:

Media Format (I set up a custom field in Coppermine for this - Field Name 1)
Date Live on site (would like to map this to be the Date Stamp of the file in Coppermine)
Filename
Album Title
Keywords

Is there a way to easily batch load this supporting info for each file into CPG along with the media files, rather than going into the UI and manually creating all the albums, manually adding them album by album in the batch-add, then manually editing each file in the UI? I have searched the board without success and was hoping that maybe someone else has had to do this?

How did you solve the problem?

Thanks.

There is a mod posted to allow importing such data from a csv file.

Hi Nibbler-

Thanks for this info!

I searched on "csv" and found your mod for importing user data. Is that the mod you were thinking of? Or is there another one that allows import of data for the individual files?
