Batch Upload Fails
« on: April 09, 2013, 12:25:27 AM »
I'm running Joomla 2.5.9 and RSGallery 2 3.2.0 - SVN 1098.

Everything seems to work well, except for Batch Upload. I can upload images one at a time. Perhaps there's a concept I'm not understanding.

I've created some small, less than 1mb, zip files.  I can select them in the Batch Upload user interface.  I can select my desired Gallery.  I click the Next button and I see the upload countdown increase to 100%.  Then I'm brought to the Step 2 screen, but no images are listed.  If I click the Upload button I'm brought back to the RSGalley Control Panel and I see this message...Please select gallery for ALL images! (Also for images that will be deleted. nThis will be corrected in future version!).

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.  Any help will be appreciated!

I'm setting up this site for someone who will want to upload lot's of photos. Doing them one at a time is not an option.  We really need to use Batch Upload.

For my web site about a monthly full moon run "http://www.vollmondlauf-hechingen.de/index.php?option=com_rsgallery2&Itemid=6" i upload pictures every month. It still uses joomla 1.5 but a joomla 2.5 is prepared and used with pictures too.

I use two methods to batch upload pictures

1) Zip pictures into one file but keep the asize limit unde 8 MB ( i resize pictures to 2048x1536 before)
There are no folders inside the zip, just pictures
2) Create gallery where pictures shall be kept
3) In rsgallry2 select batch upload
4) Select the zip
5) Select the intended gallery for all pictures
6) Start upload
7) After a while (needs some time) all pictures are displayed. Here some pictures may be select to ignore on the upload
8.) Start final upload

My second way to upload picture goes over ftp.
1) With ftp i transfer a set of pictures to a folder i created on the server provided by my hoster.
2) On the rsgallery2 batch upload form i select ftp . For the first part of the path to the folder i use the recommended base path. Then i add "/" and the folder path of the destination and the last character of the resulting path a "/".
3) Select the intended gallery for all pictures
4) Start upload
5) After a while (needs some time) all pictures are displayed. Here some pictures may be select to ignore on the upload
6) Start final upload
Here i can transfer more pictures per upload.

I hope this helps you

Please give all the details asked here, and enable debug/error reporting:

And just as whazzup (thanks whazzup!) already implies: do the other methods of uploading work? Single upload, batch upload with zip file, batch upload via ftp?
With a babyboy in the house I don't spend as much time on RSG2 as before. I still like RSG2, if you do too, please think about how you can invest some of your time in RSG2...
