Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery Voting » View Results by Gallery / Download

  • Resolved robsdigiphos


    I’ve been using NextGEN Gallery Voting for clients to they can choose images from their proofs. Once they’ve chosen, I take the picture titles and find the corresponding titles within my light room galleries.

    Two features that I would like to see are:
    1) View all results by gallery (similar to the “top votes” screen)
    2) And a way to download these results to excel as a CSV or something….Image samples would not have to be included.

    I suspect I’m not the only one using voting for a similar purpose.

    Hi robsdigiphos
    Thanks for the feedback, I’m glad the plugin is useful for you.

    1) I like the idea of a gallery filter in the ‘top voted’ screen. I actually originally had built it in, but there was a bug introduced with an NGG update, and I never got around to figuring out the way to fix the query. I have re-added it to my to-do list.

    2) You are now the second person to suggest exporting the voting results. I have it on the list to-do, but I will bump it up a notch or 2 and see if I can get it done sooner.

    Thanks again for the feedback, let me know if there is anything else on your mind

    That’s awesome! It would be a great help to me and others I’m sure.

    Hi again robsdigiphos

    I am definitely going to add a gallery filter to the ‘Top Voted’ screen in the next release, as well as the export functionality in the next release of the Premium add-on.

    I am going to add an extra ‘Export Results’ button to the ‘Top Voted’ screen, that will export the list of results from the filter. I have the following list of fields so far, is there anything else you would like to see come through?

    Gallery Name
    Avg / 10
    Max / 10
    Min / 10
    Number Votes
    Image URL

    For me, I’m looking at writing a LR plugin that will allow me to take this list of pictures, and flag / color a picture on the file name — well so is my plan if Light Room supports it.

    Exporting those results would be great, but maybe the option to select which of those fields you have listed you want exported. i.e. I really only need the file name 90% of the time, so it’d be nice to just be able to select that. In any case, I’m sure if you pump out a csv ( or some other workable format ) excel can do the sorting and chopping I may need.

    Hi robsdigiphos

    I am happy to let you know I have updated NextGEN Gallery Voting and the Premium add-on, adding the features you needed.
    There is now a gallery filter in the ‘top voted’ screen in NGG Voting, and Premium adds a button allowing you to export the list of results matching the filter.

    There are a bunch of other features included too, so check it out here if you want 🙂

    Since doing the upgrade. All previous votes have “disappeared” and the like buttons are not showing up on my gallery (even though the php snippet is included in the gallery.php script)

    Are you talking about updating the free plugin to version 2.3.1, or have you also installed the premium add-on?

    Both, I have since added the add-on as well. But the free version is still “enabled”. But even before I had installed the premium version this was an issue.

    All settings in my existing galleries have reverted back to defaults. I have changed these defaults win the voting settings and I have tried applying them to all galleries — didn’t seem to have an effect. But even the default settings (Start Rating) isn’t showing up when I view the gallery.

    As I mentioned above, I have also added the extra line to the gallery.php.

    Silly question, but are you sure you’re using version 2.3.1? I released 2.3 a couple hours before, and it had a typo in it that created problems with some installs. Please make sure you are updated to 2.3.1.

    That’s the version I have 2.3.1. I can try removing and reinstalling.

    Please do try that, because I cannot think of any reason for what you are experiencing to be happening. Please make sure to implicitly activate the plugin, as that triggers the process that should create the database tables.

    That was just, just had to deactivate and reactivate.

    Gah, it’s always so simple 🙂

    Thanks for putting up with my remote debug attempts. I’m glad we got it sorted. I knew that typo in 2.3 was going to give me headaches.

    Thanks for the support, it makes the development worth the hours.

    I’m really glad to have this plugin and the export function will work great! When I get my app done, it’ll take the input from this CSV and create a smart gallery in Lightroom from the picture’s file names. You’ll just have to import the Lightroom smart collection file. It’ll save a TON of time for singling out client files.
