Support » Plugin: Media Deduper » Feature Request

    This is a feature request rather than a support request.
    Would it be possible for a future version of media deduper pro to work with maxgalleria galleries?

    I’m working on merging 3 wordpress sites into one and media deduper has done a wonderful job of merging duplicate images in posts and pages, but when I tested a duplicate in two maxgalleria galleries, it removed the image from one gallery. (It’s fine, it was a test of one image only so I just replaced it).

    Hi there!

    I have a task into our developers to checkout how maxgalleria works. If the galleries are created using shortcodes or a custom post type (or some combination of the two), and nothing is stored in a separate DB table, then yes, we should be able to integrate with it in somehow. We’ll investigate and see what we can do.

    Thanks for taking the time to write!

    P.S. Love your tagline (knitting, fluff, and other stuff)

    Hi again @knittingand

    We took a closer look and unfortunately, getting MDD to integrate with MaxGalleria is not just a matter of adding some filters to handle some new post meta fields, because MaxGalleria actually *requires* duplicate attachments in order to work the way it’s supposed to.

    So this isn’t something we can add — at least in the short-term, as it would take a significant re-writing of the way MDD works.

    Thanks again for taking the time to write — and sorry we don’t have better news for you.

    Thanks for looking into it. I managed to get all my images duplicates tidied up, just ignoring the ones that were in galleries.

    Thanks for the great plugin. I’ve been merging 3 wordpress installations and importing all the html files from a 23 year old site, so there were hundreds of duplicate files to deal with. Pro version is working brilliantly, all except for the maxgalleria thing 😉
