Howto update gallery with updated folder content
« on: February 24, 2012, 05:46:53 pm »

As per title. I have a load of folders I regulary drop new files into in Windows Explorer. I use a locally running copy of CPG. How can I have CPG add the files to the gallery? Ive tried Mass Import in the past, but that doesnt skip over files that are already in the gallery.

Unfortunately you have to use the batch-add option on each folder separately. Coppermine automatically detects which images aren't in the gallery yet. Alternatively you could try to modify the Mass Import plugin to skip already existing files (ideally you should share your updated plugin code if it works as expected).

I have tried this, but on using batch-add all files in the folder get selected in the interface. Should I just move on with the import? (Will it skip after importing?)

I assume you're not using the latest Coppermine release. Please post a link to your gallery.

I have tried this, and it indeed skips the existing images. For now this solution will do. (Posting a link to a local gallery won't work, I'm afraid.) Thanks so far.
