  • effgee


    Hi, I would like to follow your project, are you on Github? Please add your Git to the plugin description. Very nice work.

    Some ideas for the future. Feel free to ignore me.


    Option to have own Post type for these imports.
    PDFpost type for example.
    This will let us have custom fields for meta information to Extract existing metadata from PDF, to custom fields maybe.
    ex Keywords, Author etc
    If on import a new post type is created, we can:
    Attach the original PDF to the post in a view/template.
    Extract original filename and record into meta data.
    Get checksum of PDF.
    Rename PDF file to checksum before storage to avoid file name conflicts.
    Perhaps Customizable with Pre/Post naming convention ex PDF2POST_CHECKSUM.PDF
    Images should be named based on the checksum named document.
    If identical checksum pdf is uploaded, do not duplicate, write duplicated pdf’s filename (if different) to post metadata as “Alternate Filename(s)”

    Download original pdf (as any of registered filenames)
    Download modified pdf with any post data modifications.
    For example, I plan on putting some translated excerpts into the post, might be nice to download a pdf with that metadata as an option.

    Unfortunately I am not competent with programming.
    I can debug a little and do basic things only.
    I am server admin (linux/windows etc) more than programmer.

    Also I am not familiar at all with WordPress repo mechanics, but I will accept the invitation. I may not be able to participate very much though. 😛

    Another utility that may be of interest regarding this project.

    No response needed, just leaving it there for a record.
