I purchased the recent upgrade from Gallery to PPPro and I've been carefully watching these threads ever since, but something just hit me upside the head.
What is the file structure of PPPro? My current vBGallery photos reside in a subdirectory named /home/myusername/public_html/gallery/files .
The underlying tree structure is based on a user's user number so for example, all photos and thumbnails of user #7445 are in this folder: /home/myusername/public_html/gallery/files/7/4/4/5
Therefore all of that users photos are referenced as:
http : //www.mydomainname/gallery/files/7/4/4/5/hisphoto.jpg
(spaces inserted to keep this from linking and show it as a complete URL here)
The files directory has an .htaccess file set up to prevent outside theft of bandwidth from all subfolders. Here's the kicker!
Does the PhotoPostGallery to PhotoPostPro importer retain this file structure? If not, I would probably have thousands of dead hotlinks from my forums to the user's photos that appear in our threads.
That would be a non-starter and maybe would render me locked into vBGallery.
