Problem = mass moving pictures from old Photopost gallery to newly installed gallery.
forum had a version of photopost installed on our server for sometime and forum users had uploaded over 2000 pictures to various folders/albums within that gallery. For various reasons our photopost license expired and the gallery stopped working for some years.
We renewed the license and had Chuck install the new version of photopost over the top of the old version (I assume the various new files replaced old ones) in the same directory on our server (I think).
Within the vB
admin control panel I have configured the new installation and made various new categories and sub categories e.t.c for the members to upload there pictures too.
I want to sort through and redistribute all the old pictures into these various categories so I have also created an "old pictures" category thinking I would be able to upload all 2000 of the old pictures into this one category and then redistribute them from there.........
Thats where I come unstuck........via FTP, looking in the gallery folder I can see that an image uploaded to any category via the forum control panel ends up in file 1. So uploading all these old pictures via FTP from my PC to the server how can I specify and upload them to the "old pictures" category.
OR do I have to upload each "old picture" from my pc one by one via the admin control panel into there specific categories...
sorry for the long winded (probably nonsense) post
