File Naming
« on: January 23, 2010, 09:26:56 pm »

Didn't see anything like this anywhere else, so thought I'd post. If there is something like this somewhere, please point me in that direction!  :D

This comes with a bit of a back story. A few months ago, I joined a fan site as a co web. The site, it seems, has gone through many owners, all of which had a different way of naming images in the gallery. The girl who primarily runs it now likes images labeled with their quality level and the number of the image (for example, HQ01, MQ01, etc.). We're doing that with all new images, but the old ones are still messily labeled.

Long story short, my question is this: Is there a way I can rename files already in the gallery without losing our view count? Thanks!

Posting a link to your Coppermine is mandatory when asking for support - please do so. Until then no one will want to answer you.

Please review the board rules.

Coppermine is a database-driven app. The database keeps track of file names. The human doesn't have to. Your site's visitor don't care for file names, and you should not care neither.

Anyway, if you must, you can rename your files on file system level using your favorite FTP app. Then you need to reflect the change by editing the corresponding record in coppermine's database (pictures table) using a third-party tool like phpMyAdmin. However, that's not advisable at all.

You appear to be using http uploads, which will make it hard to organize your pics. Take a look at the docs, at the section that explains FTP uploads and batch-add. We really recommend using that instead of http uploads.
