WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Multiple file upload not working (22 posts)

    When I open the dialog box to upload, I can only choose one file even though the text "Select up to 15 for upload" shows.
    I think I am current with WP (3.0.1) and Photo Album Plus.
    Thanks,
    Davekat

    That's correct. You can select more photos and then press the upload button, to upload the batch. You can not yet do a multiselect at once.

    hello opajaap, is there any possibility that WP photo album will have this kind of feature?

    I really want this kind of feature. Because most of my albums will consist of 200-400photos.

    thanks opajaap.

    There is a bulk import in 2.2.0.
    You can - using an ftp program - bulk upload to a depository and then bulk import them to an album, with optional remove from depository after successful import.

    Not exactly the function that I wanted, but it works great. For a workaround, this feature rocks. Thanks opajaap.

    Yes. Multi select in the browser upload dialog is not possible as far as i know, that is why i made this. Maybe i will expand this to other locations of files (the wp media library for example). Then there is still the problem that some php configs do not allow file read from url, must be path. So, you see, there is always somthing to work on.
    Nice that you like this feature. I use it myself when i have more than a few to upload.

    Too bad it hasn't got a batch upload function in the wordpress area. My users are not experienced in FTP programs, so therefor this plugin is not usable for me. However it does fit 99% of my needs, shame :(

    Hope it gets added in the future !

    Don't blame the manufacturer of the tools that you can not handle them

    I can handle them perfectly fine, my users can't.

    I think that userfriendly upload function should be number one in a gallery. And I miss that allot in most plugins I find for WordPress. It's too often too technical, which is fine for the developer/webdesigner, but not for the end user.

    And it's not a critic, it's just my comment on the plugin. Hence my last sentence, that I still hope this gets added in the future. Because apart from that, this plugin is the best i've found among the gallery plugins. This is a comment, not a blame.

    Ok, thanks. It is simply not possible to do a multi file select in the select file dialog.

    Straight from w3schools.com:

    Create an Upload-File Form

    To allow users to upload files from a form can be very useful.

    Look at the following HTML form for uploading files:
    <html>
    <body>

    <form action="upload_file.php" method="post"
    enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <label for="file">Filename:</label>
    <input type="file" name="file" id="file" />

    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />
    </form>

    </body>
    </html>

    Notice the following about the HTML form above:

    * The enctype attribute of the <form> tag specifies which content-type to use when submitting the form. "multipart/form-data" is used when a form requires binary data, like the contents of a file, to be uploaded
    * The type="file" attribute of the <input> tag specifies that the input should be processed as a file. For example, when viewed in a browser, there will be a browse-button next to the input field

    The browse-button opens a file select dialog that does NOT support multi select.

    If you know about a php script that supports multifile uploads, i will be glad to know.

    I could make an upload program to upload zip-files to the user's personal depot directory from where they could be imported, but i guess your users will also not be able to pack muliple .jpg's into a .zip?

    On windows (and even mac) this is one click away to make a zip file, so that is not like it was suppose to be with WinZip etc ... i'm glad that function has become much easier :)

    A zip file upload would be great. Personally I like that even more then multiple file selection.

    I wish I could have helped you with it, but i'm afraid my php knowledge doesn't go any further then installing and tweaking some excisting stuff in wordpress...

    Ok, zip upload is on the wish list. This will take only one or two weeks to implement. Stay tuned...

    Fixed in 3.0.1.009 Fix version:

    * 009: You can now upload zipfiles with photos if your php version is at least 5.2.7.

    See here for instructions.

    I've deleted and installed the new zip file. When clicking "Import photos" or "upload photos" (i'm not sure if this is the proper translation, i'm using dutch version) I get these errors at the top:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /public/sites/www.dweilorkestheur-es.nl/site/wp-content/plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/wppa_upload.php on line 949

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /public/sites/www.dweilorkestheur-es.nl/site/wp-content/plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/wppa_upload.php on line 949

    I have php 5.2.6 so the zip function does not work, but i'm not sure if above errors have to do with it. So that's why i'm posting them.

    I'll see if my host can update my PHP. Will post updates then :)
    Thanks again so much.

    Fixed in 3.0.1.010 Fix release. You know how to get it by now.
    This version has updated dutch language files also.

    However, the warning does no harm.

    Verder kan je tegen mij gewoon Nederlands spreken, maar dat ter zijde.

    Sorry for the late reaction.

    My host won't update individual and they can't say when they will be on a new version of php. Boo-hoo

    So I guess I have to work with what i've got. Decided to go with your plugin after all, the userfriendly-ness always wins ;)

    May I thank you for everything, you are a great help. Hope my host will come to it's senses .. and i'll be able to use the function soon =)

    (dacht typ 't ff in het engels, dan snapt de rest het eventueel ook haha)

    Thanks, I figured it out on my own. Table 6 in the setting page was checked same as title on cover image, but worked fine in Chrome and Firefox, but not in IE but when we checked no link at all on cover image all worked well in all 3 browsers. So its ok now.

    Thank you...great help here..
