first off all, I’m using WP/LR Sync in combination with your Lightroom plugin since many years and it’s a wonderful time saver that I highly recommend. It worked well with RealMedia Library plugin that I bought in addition and it was very useful. Also the combination with Justify Image Grid/RealMedia Library works perfect and I’m using it on a lot of sites.
But since you have desided (You & Matthias) to renew the connection I’m lost a little bit. I tried to update two times and returned to the old combination again cause of being not successful. It took me a little while to understand that WP/LR Sync folder and WP/LR Sync are not replacing but complementing each other. The information about this was a little bit mixed up.
So I tried to update the third time as I saw that you have updated your plugin to 5.0, what seems very useful due to the new token method (now I have an issue with Wordfence but that’s another story).
To come to my question.
All my galleries are connected through Justify Image Grid directly to the WP/LR Sync folders in RML. I updated all plugins to the newest versions. The connection is fine and I can upload and remove pictures through Lightroom…. but now there are TWO folder trees in the Real Media Plugin. One named WP/LR Sync, the other WPLR Sync. In “WP/LR” Sync are all the old folders and images. In “WPLR” Sync there is the same folder hierarchy but with image shortcuts that points to the “WP/LR” Sync folder.
When I’m uploading new images through Lightroom the images are uploaded to WPLR Sync (where the Shortcuts are). The WP/LR Sync folders remains unaffected. For me its realy annoying, because all the old folders are connected to Justify Image Grid and I would have to reconnect all sites to the “new tree” in WPLR Sync. It makes absolutely no sense for me to combine the old and new tree. To keep the old images in WP/LR Sync, and to combine shortcuts of the WP/LR Sync tree in the WPLR Sync in combination with new images that I will upload in the future.
How can I get rid of one of the trees (WP/LR or WPLR) and connect it to Justify Image Grid again?
Or should I use the new feature in WP/LR Sync 5.0, to show the folders in the WP Media and say good bye to the Real Media Plugin? (this would mean to reconnect all images and give another plugins a try (Meow Gallery etc. – which have – sorry to say Jordy – reduced possibilities compared with Justify Image Grid) It will be a lot of work anyway 🙁
Any solutions to solve this?
