I use WordPress a lot for it's CMS functionality. In these setups often a file itself is the center of attention, not the text in a blogpost. A file could be a photo, video, gps-track or other arbitrary file.
I'm looking for a plugin which automagically creates post from the filename or directory-structure. E.g.:
- When a WordPress setup is for photo's the plugin scans the upload directory for *.jpg's. When it find a directory like 2009/12/01 with a photo named "Weekend Paris.jpg" it creates a post with date 01-12-2009 and title "Weekend Paris". With the image attached.
- Or the plugin scans the filenames, like "20091201 Weekend Paris.jpg" and creates the same post as above. Using a filename convention to populate the necessary fields in the WP tables.
This plugin could rescan the upload directory by cronjobs. Another idea for photos:
Take the directory structure for 1 blogpost, and attach al the files within a directory to one blogpost. This would turn WordPress into an automatic photoalbum gallery.
With my gpx files, using the google-map plugin, it would turn WordPress into an automatic tracks sharing site.
I scanned a lot of plugins to look for this functionality, but never found it. Any ideas?
