Support » Plugin: Easy Photography Portfolio » Order Images by Filename

  • Resolved apwp

    Hi,

    I’m sure it’s fairly common for photographers to use something like Lightroom to prepare their images for display, including ordering images and exporting them with a sequence number in the filename that retains this order. However, when importing files into the Media Library and then adding them to a Portfolio in the plugin this carefully defined ordering gets completely messed up. The only option you have is to move images one-by-one in the portfolio edit page. This is really slow when you have a lot of images to move, which is usually the case.

    It seems a major limitation of the Media Library not to offer some kind of sorting option, especially for photographs.

    Could you consider an enhancement that provides for a sorting option by filename or by title? Apparently it’s possible to do this in the standard gallery by adding an ‘orderby=”title”‘ clause to the gallery shortcode, but this plugin doesn’t provide a shortcode so I can’t try that.

    Thanks,
    Adrian

    Hi Adrian,

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I hope to rework how the gallery works quite a bit in the future, hopefully I can add this in along too. I have no estimates for when that’s going to happen though.
