View Full Version : how does Bulk Uploads work?
November 2nd, 2006, 04:04 PM
We have one vendor who would like to publish a significant number of ads frequently....I assume this is what the "Bulk Uploads" feature is for...is there anywhere that describes or details the instructions on how this is performed?

bulk upload is only for admins basically as they need ftp access to the server

thats fine...i dont mind doing it as this customer will pay a good amount of money for the work...id still like to know how its done!

As stated bulkupload is only for admins thus users are not allowed to bulkupload.

and as stated...i will do it for them...as I own the software and am an admin.
can I have the instructions or not?

Well if you upload all the photos to your uploads directory you can hit the skip upload and process all files in your directory checkbox and make sure where it says upload as user you type in the users username. Thats all there is to it

so this is just for uploading photos? you cant somehow create a file to upload a significant number of ads at once?

That is not how the process works each ad must look to see if a photos exists thats what bulkupload is about there has to be a tangible photo to process to count how many ads to process else your going to do things one at a time

ok..perhaps im making this out to be more complicated than it is?
Is there a way to format a file..or series of files...and photos...that will allow me to post numerous ads at a time....instead of one at a time?

You can only use the bulkupload feature on reviewpost which is triggered by photos that exist in the users upload directory

you are like the king of not giving me a straight answer in this thread =)
Can I make a text file (formatted in some way..or any file for that matter) that contains 100 classified ads...and upload them all at the same time instead of individually?
Or does every single ad within photopost have to be submitted manually using the application?

I have answered this 5 days ago how bulk upload works and how to do it. You can not do what you want to do. If you want to upload multiple ads it is triggered by the number of photos found in the uploads directory

You can not do what you want to do
wish you would have just said that in the beginning...
thank you for your time.
