Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

Getting the same errors as other people. In my ftp client:

<550 SIZE: Operation not permitted>

In the txp interface:

There was a problem reading image info. Check the image file or the permissionsaba_import_images imported 1 images>

The only thing thats working is the image gets deleted from the folder!

Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

Update: after upgrading from 4.0.2 to 4.0.03 this seems to work. Like shafina I get error messages, but it does it anyway.
Also, it had worked with 4.0.2 but it wasn’t showing on the images page.

There are times when I’d like to add a custom image element to a whole series of images.

If i had thought about this (or knew PHP) i probably would have tried this for a recent client. But instead i ended up doing something similar in Javascript (a kind of post-production effect rather than affecting the images themselves). Anyway, I know it’s not the same thing, but check it out here if you are curious.

Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

This plugin does not work for me at all. Each time I try to import, I get this:

[error]There was a problem reading image info. Check the image file or the permissionsCould not delete random.jpg – please delete it yourself to prevent reimporting.
aba_import_images imported 1 images[/error]

Already CHMOD 777’ed the import folder and using the latest version on your site

Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

aba_image_import was carried on by Flashpix and is now called fpx_image_import

Interesting – didn’t know about this (maybe because his post is from today). I’m grateful, but I’m afraid I have to correct your given url:
http://forum.textpattern.com/viewtopic.php?id=16040

A complete rewrite is still on my agenda, but judging from the last months it’ll take a while longer, so please check out Dirks work – his version seems to get rid of the errors some of you had with the plugin.

Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

Sorry, i just posted the article and the other stuff (here, textpattern.org, my own blog), so i forgot to add a note to this thread.

And no, i’ve not carried it on, i’ve got no clue whatsoever about the image functions in it :-) I just added a nicer frontend and a preference page.

And thanx aba for correcting my forum link, i’ve also updated it in the relevant places.

Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

As a move away from redundancy or vaporplugins you guys —aba and Flashpix — should consider working together on this plugin to produce one <strong>%{color:maroon}ultimate%</strong> image import plugin. aba doing the rewrite (as he suggests), Flashpix integrating the nice frontend (as he has done), and tag-teaming on bugs (to get to perfection quicker). ;)

You could hash out the continuing name, of course, but one possibility that could reflect such a combined effort is duo_image_import, where duo indicated the two-author nature of it. The prefix could be adopted by any other pair of plugin authors that wanted to combine efforts on past/future work… duo_this_plugin, duo_that_plugin, etc.

Normally I would never have stumbled in here to suggest such things, but as I am putting together a plugin archive of modern plugins I’ve been learning a lot about the world of Txp plugin relationships and recognizing how archiving might be improved for relevant (supported) plugins.

Re: aba_import_images (formerly nhn_import_images)

Hi everyone-

I’m changing my website from static to dynamic using textpattern and it’s a slow process as I don’t know textpattern nor php. I just bought the new book, textpattern solutions, and really going through the whole process.

One of the things that’s really important to me is iptc keywords and I’ve been looking for a plugin that imports it into the images tab, but there isn’t any. fpx_image_import is the closest that I could get so I’ve modified it a bit to import the iptc caption —-> textpattern’s alt field, and the iptc keywords —-> texpattern’s caption field. It’s working on my install on my local server. I’m posting this here in case somebody might find this useful and just in case my computer crashes. If you’re a php guru and find something wrong with this, give me a shout. I’m sure there are better ways to change the code but I wanted to change it as little as possible so the plugin still does whatever it’s supposed to do but at the end I just switch the values that it uses.

ORIGINAL code (3/4 of the way down):

if ( @is_array($iptc_info) && !empty($iptc_info["2#120"][0]) )
                    {
                        $caption = $iptc_info["2#120"][0];
                        $caption = utf8_encode($caption);
                        $caption = doSlash($caption);
                    }

change to

if ( @is_array($iptc_info) && !empty($iptc_info["2#025"][0]) )
                    {
                     $keywordcount = count($iptc_info["2#025"]);
                     for ($i=0; $i<$keywordcount; $i++)
                                $caption .= $iptc_info["2#025"][$i]." ";
                      $caption = utf8_encode($caption);
                      $caption = doSlash($caption);
                      $realalt = $iptc_info["2#120"][0];
                      $realalt = utf8_encode($realalt);
                      $realalt = doSlash($realalt);
                     }

You also have to change a couple of lines down

original code:

alt  = '$alt',

to

alt  = '$realalt',

That’s it! Thanks to Michael Wells who posted code on the internet on how to convert the iptc keyword array to a string.

If you don’t want to change how fpx_image_import works wrt to the using alt field for filename, just don’t add the 3 lines of code above relating to $realalt and don’t change the definition of the ‘alt’ variable.
