Support » Plugins and Hacks » Image Upload Hack for Multiple Images?

  • I dearly, dearly need to be able to upload multiple images at the one time from the write page.

    Can someone (pretty)please steer me in the right direction.

    I want to keep things as absolutely simple for my users as possible and do not want them to ftp their images.

    Nor do I need them to be able to edit and refine the images.

    Nor do I need thumbnails in the posts, just the images.

    All I want is for them to be able to upload more than one image at a time.

  • I’ve been searching, searching everywhere for what seems like months now and haven’t been able to find a solution to this problem. Surely I am not the only one who needs/wants this hack?

    well first, i don’t think that a “hack” would do it… it’s going to need a plugin.

    and yes, it would be great if someone could come up with something like this…

    (incidentally – creating three different threads on this same topic probably isn’t the best idea…)

    Yes, sorry about that.

    I’d love to see this feature as well!

    It would also be brilliant if the plugin had the option to automatically resize any large images to something more usable, and also an option to set the quality of resized or thumbnail images. (I think you can only control thumbnail quality by hacking at the moment)

    Or what about support for sets of zipped images?

    Woooah, I’ll stop there, that sounds complicated enough already!

    Use version 0.9.2, 0.9.4 is really buggy.

    Can you upload multiple images (at the one time) with this though?

    Ten images maximum.

    I wanted the same feature and hacked inline-uploading.php to arrow multiple files and I changed it to a plugin

    It’s very simple but if you JUST need multi-files feature, this would help.

    Currently it’s only been tested with FF+Win2000.
    If using other browsers, pls forgive me for potential bugs.
    Testers are always welcome:).

    Thanks Yoshi, I’ll look into that. You wouldn’t also know how to limit the image dimensions as well would you? I don’t want my users to be able to upload/post images that over 250 pixels high or 450 pixels wide.

    I still think most of the options mentioned in this thread should be controllable by default somewhere in the admin panel!

    MPM, maybe you can do something like this.

    =========================================

    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: Check Image Dementions
    */

    add_action ('add_attachment', 'r_check_image_dimentions');

    function r_check_image_dimentions($post_ID) {

    // chenge these
    // ============
    $maxwidth = 450;
    $maxheight = 250;

    $post = & get_post($post_ID);
    if ( preg_match('!^image/!', $post->post_mime_type) ) {
    $file = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_wp_attached_file', true);
    $imagesize = getimagesize($file);
    if ( $imagesize['0'] > $maxwidth || $imagesize['1'] > $maxwidth ) {
    wp_delete_attachment($post_ID);
    die("Image must be smaller than $maxwidth x $maxheight" . '
    post_parent . '">'.__('Back to Image Uploading').'');
    }
    }
    }
    ?>
    =========================================

    Hi Yoshi,

    Thanks heaps. Your multiple image plugin seems to be working a charm!

    However, the limitdimensions one gives me this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘”‘ in /home/mpmorg/public_html/solfege/wp-content/plugins/limitimagedimensions.php on line 22

    Looks like the ‘a’ tag was parsed. Didn’t notice.

    Here is the code again.


    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: Check Image Dementions
    */

    add_action ('add_attachment', 'rx_check_image_dimentions');

    function rx_check_image_dimentions($post_ID) {

    $maxwidth = 450;
    $maxheight = 250;

    $post = & get_post($post_ID);
    if ( preg_match('!^image/!', $post->post_mime_type) ) {
    $file = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_wp_attached_file', true);
    $imagesize = getimagesize($file);
    if ( $imagesize['0'] > $maxwidth || $imagesize['1'] > $maxwidth ) {
    wp_delete_attachment($post_ID);
    die("Image must be smaller than $maxwidth x $maxheight !!!" . '<br /><a href="' . $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERRER'] . '?action=upload&post=' . $post->post_parent . '">'.__('Back to Image Uploading').'</a>');
    }
    }
    }
    ?>

    Did you get this working?

    IMAGES: I’ve just arrived in the wordpress community, and am finding this topic a litle hard to come to grips with.

    I’d like multiple image uploads, and find the plug-in library and the supporting detail a little hard to get sure I have a current version, and to not overkill (first load this, then do this, then this etc).

    I have some other preferences. I’d love
    *on the fly resizing/cropping for single images
    *and resizing for batch mode.

    I have started with the list at http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Images

    Photopress has this to say: http://familypress.net/photopress/
    “Photopress
    Photopress is a plugin that adds a set of helper tools to WordPress to make working with images easier. It adds a pop-up uploader and a pop-up image browser to the posting page, a groovy random image function for your template, and a simple album to display the photos you’ve uploaded.

    Latest version: Download photopress.zip or photopress.tar.gz.

    Requirements:
    Photopress works with both WordPress 1.5.2 and 2.0. It works both with and without the Rich Text Editor in WP 2.0. You must have the GD module for PHP installed and working, but it should let you know if you don’t”

    2.0 is a good start, unsure what GD is.

    And this: http://www.animalbeach.net/aniga/
    I quote:
    ANIga (v0.30) is a picture gallery wordpress plugin. Its integrated in the WP posts system and uses the WP comments for pictures.
    This is an early release of this plugin. Some things might not work properly, some features are still missing. USE AT OWN RISK! I appreciate any feedback!
    requirements

    * WP 2.0.4 (could maybe work with 2.0.3 but NOT with 2.0 and lesser!)
    * ftp access to your server
    * GD 2.0+ and JPEG libraries compiled into PHP for automatic image resize
    * ’safe mode’ off for zip upload

    This seems to be superb. Just a bit daunting to install.

    I have installed http://www.soderlind.no/archives/2006/01/03/imagemanager-20/
    Just for nterest, but it does’t qite have the functonality I need.

    Hmm. Any suggestions welcome. I’ve RSS’ed this thread, I’l be back as I try tome more on the humungous list of plugins.

    -Derek
