Multiple file selection & upload

Multiple file selection & upload

It appears from the demo that PowerGallery does not support multiple file selection & upload.
Is this correct?
It would be very time consuming to upload one photo at a time without support for multiple file selection.

In order to process multiple files, first FTP (or whatever means you use) them over to your server. Then choose the directory you uploaded to on the Server Upload tab in the admin. It will process all the images for you.

That's Sort of Lame

You mean a user who has no access to your server has to upload 1 image at a time???

Part of the issue is the maximum PHP upload filesize. Most servers have this set to 2MB by default, so using the Server Upload method is a way to get around that. So that is why the single image is just that and why the server upload exists. I'll make a note to look into alternate upload methods as well.

Multiple file upload

Justin, I am struggling with this also. Adding multiple image upload capabilities doesn't seem like that big a deal and would make this a much more valuable experience for the end user. Most folks using this would not have an FTP program or know how to use it. Besides jumping to another program or method outside PG does not make a whole lot of sense.

Is this feature something that will be added soon?

Thanks for the consideration.

As Justin pointed out, it's not so much a program problem, it's a PHP and server limitation. If a user has the ability to upload a bunch of images and your server chokes, it's still going to come back to the developer.

Perhaps a better approach would be to setup a bulk upload folder on the local machine, and write a command line script using one of the free FTP programs. Tell your client to copy all the images into the local folder and execute the script to upload everything in that folder.

If the client doesn't want to do it that way, you can offer to do it for them (more money for you), or show them the prices for dedicated servers. :)

Multiple file upload

The number of files uploaded could be limited as well as size. I am investigatine a FLEX file upload system now and wonder if i can get some help integrating it into PG. It has a user table in the MYSql dB and it would be nice if the user could log into the PG and click a muliple file upload lin that would pass the session variables to the file management system. I am an older CF developer and am totally new to PHP so am looking for some coaching. I now the shared server must be running a peak to handle multiple uploads from multiple users and moving to a dedicated server can be expensive but there are some intermediate server packages that can be use.

Any help out there?
