I think I see what happend.
My categories were not made as "Categories" but as private albums. I think this is because all my "Site" galleries had my username assigned to them (rather than leaving it blank).
Created my categories and now bulk moving my pictures. It'll get sorted out in a bit. Still nice having all the pictures in the db already.
private albums are going to show just for you As well they are also going to show on the photopost personal albums link if they are public etc or members gallery. In Pro albums do not appear as categories in the cats list.
Thanks very much for your help. Best support for a VB script on the net right here.
I understand what you are saying, but what I meant is:
I did not "intend" to use private/personal ablums in my vbGallery.
My gallery was structured as:
-> Halloween Party
-> Trip to Beach
It seemed to work well, but I did recall having the ability to assign a username to new galleries or leaving it blank.
I think by assigning my username to the gallery, when the importer ran - it thought they were all private/personal albums because when I ran the importer, none of those categories (2009, Halloween) were created and all the pictures were listed as personal albums (rather than site categories).
Easy fix, I remade all the categories and am now doing bulk moves from personal albums into the site categories. Just thought I'd let you know of my experiences with the importer.
Still a whole lot easier and well worth the time to get things sorted out. Great product.
yeah I hear ya that you did not intend to do so but remember vbgallery and photopost have one thing in common. Categories created in the backend are categories. Categories users create on the front end are personal albums. vbgallery and photopost may display them a little different but the core aspect is the same
directory names are not the issue. Are you paths correct? Is it just images from one specific albums user what?
afaik all the paths are correct, when it I update it and it says Checking photo #1: image /home/xxxxx/public_html/gallery/data/3/
The 3 dir was never created.
The paths I used were /home/xxxxx/public_html/gallery/data and /home/xxxxx/public_html/gallery/files for the vba files, they look ok don't they?
And it's not just one person it's on all people, also when it's created the categories and I try to upload a pic to them it says file type not yet set, if I try and upload to a category I just made it works fine.
