View Full Version : ZIP Uploads, don't take out images
January 17th, 2005, 04:56 PM
Hi, so I was quite pleased when I found out PhotoPost could allow the uploading of ZIP files which was one of the features that influenced me to buy PP. The question I have is that when I upload ZIP files or when a user uploads ZIP files PhotoPost immediatly takes out the images and wants to post them. I was wondering if there is a way to allow it so that users can upload ZIP files as the .ZIP file and not have PhotoPost take out the images so that other users can just view the post and download the .ZIP file as a .ZIP file. Sorry if I'm making this sound complicated and if there is any easy way to do this but I am new to PhotoPost.

We're looking into making this an option, but the only way to do this now would be to disable ZIP uploads and add the ZIP file as a multimedia filetype. We're looking at a better way to do this.

I did what you said and added the .zip extension to the multimedia files. The upload works -- but the process is a bit odd and requires the user to select the .zip file overall from a list of a few other files in the .zip file including some images. Not meaning to nag or anything --- PhotoPost is great and I see you guys must have put countless hours into the making of it -- but when do you think you may have this "better way" of doing it available to download? Thanks for your help!
