batch add feature
« on: April 28, 2004, 12:15:20 am »

how about adding a feature to associate a sub-directory in the album directory to a certain album/category and then if you are in an album/category and choose batch add, then it would automaticlly look only in that directory to upload files. if ya know what i'm talking about.

You mean.
Select which album you want to batch-add pics first and then add the pics through URL or upload, so you don't have to chose an album afterwards for each and every picture.

That would indeed be much more userfriendly and my members were asking for it for awhile now.

batch-add requires ftp access in the first place, which should be restricted to admins only for obvious reasons. I see little point in this request.
In cpg1.3.0, there will be multiple http uploads...

Not nessecary. With virtual users and chrooted dir, i've made it so that my moderators can use FTP to upload into a /albums/dir too. With the "regularmoderators hack" i appointed some mods who can batchadd. Because of this, my gallery jumped from 10.000 to almost 40.000 images in less than 2 weeks.

OK, in that case I agree that batch-add privileges can be assigned to non-admins as well, as there's a certain level of security set up then (although I'm not sure I'd call the moderator hack secure ;), in fact it's easy to hack/break). There are some other methods possible as well that all require good knowledge about and admin powers on the webserver.
The issue is: "regular" coppermine users are webhosted and/or have very limited abilities/knowledge in server setup. If we enabled batch-add to be an option the admin could assign to regular users, I'm sure we'd get a lot of "bad press" about coppermine pages being hacked, so I doubt this will become a standard feature in coppermine, but I' sure someone could come up with a hack that could be posted in the mods section.

very similar to what i was about to post. 

somwhat simialr to this, I grant ftp access on a user by user basis, and they get a jailed ftp account that dumps into albums/username.  I ask them to create subdirectories corresponding to their albums they want pictures to be inserted.

now, the big problem w/ this for me is users have to pre-create albums so I can actually put them there.  It be nice if I could create those albums as the admin on the fly.

I would agree, my problem is I have a lot of albums, and a lot of subfolders. My members asked for this to be sorted this way (it's in the thousands of images and even folders BTW) and I guess I am spoiled, but MyEGallery automatically adds any folders as categories, and also automatically includes any images within that folder and lists them automatically. You can approve the folder for viewing, though a bug in MEG is you may also have to approve the pics as well.

Still, would save months of work, and pretty sure other people here would love that option if you have large image based websites. Would save a lot of typing at least.
