Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

Looks good!

Is there a way of adjusting it slightly, so the import interface has its own admin page? Its a problem when it sits at the bottom of the images page, if you have lots of images that 1) have to load and 2) that you have to scroll past, to get to the import options.

And also, if you are importing a large quanitity of images, it makes sense again if you manage it within its own page, not inserted at the bottom of the images page.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

James, the only other possibility would be to put it on the same page as the configuration page, or another tab there. But then you wouldn’t see the results of the import.

And yes, the textpattern image handling sucks, and there are efforts currently going on to improve this.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

Its not that is sucks, its just confusing when you have a plugin installed. Then its hard to know how to create/edit/change a thumbnail. Just an example. If you use the TXP default image handling without any image plugins, its not so bad.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

Great work!

Something I would like to see as an added feature is the option (very much like Filename as alt-text) to have the Image name being set to the Filename minus the extension.

Thanks!


be safe and happy

locate the following code segment (after about 2/3):

<code>
$ext = $extensions[$extension];
$imagename = utf8_encode(substr($filename, 0, strrpos($filename, ‘.’)));
$alt = $imagename;
$imagename .= $ext;
$name2db = doSlash($imagename);
</code>
get rid of the following line:

<code>
$imagename .= $ext;
</code>

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

I am getting a redirect error in both Firefox and IE7 when I try to open my “image” tab in admin. The error reads “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.” I have a feeling that something might have happened when I was trying to implement a multiple image import plugin. I first used aba_import_image and then realized that fpx_image_import might be better for my needs. Thus I uninstalled the aba_import and installed fpx_import plugin. It was after this that I noticed that I received the aforementioned error when trying to access the image tab. Any ideas? If it helps, my site lives on a Windows 2003 server box and I am utilizing a redirect trick to get clean urls…

Thanks,
Blue

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

Promising plugin, Flashpix. Since aba is planning a complete rewrite of his version (aba_image_import)…why don’t you guys work together?

because I’m a lousy programmer, awkward to work with and still trying to get myself convinced to do the rewrite.

Use the source, do it like I did: Get a book about PHP and start changing the plugin.

Forget your meds this morning, aba? You so misunderstand me I’m not even going to go there. In any case, your words speak volumes.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fpx_image_import

FPX,
Great plugin,
Did I miss something, or will I always see the file structure of the images in the import folder?
Will I need to manually delete those after import?

If so, can we have an option of deleting those like nhn did?

:)
