Hi,

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to have an extra "title" for each photo, in addition to "description"?

Also, is there any way to mention our own naming scheme for the thumbnails/pics? Like can I specify my own prefix/suffix for each thumbnail?


regards,
Teja

Do you want that there was 2 editable fields or just attached hidden field with title?

There is no way for it, but you can easy rename thumbnail files on server side and save them actually with any prefix/suffix.

Hi,

The "title" field I want it as a editable field just like description_N field.

I am renaming with my own prefix/suffix, but the problem with that is, when I upload the same file, there is no way to tell the system to upload with a unique name.

if I have xx.jpg and upload it as thumbnail only (thumbnail1 as the file itself, thumbnail2 as the actual thumbnail),

it uploads xx.jpg_Thumbnail1.jpg,xx.jpg_Thumbnail2.jpg

Then I rename to xx.jpg,sm_xx.jpg ( by stripping off _Thumb.... parts)

So next time I try to upload a file xx.jpg ( could be a file in another directory on client machine), there is no way for me to know that xx.jpg is already on the server. when it uploads xx.jpg with default names, there is no way for it to know that it already exists.

Ofcourse I can still do a directory search etc for the file name and try to create my own unique name, but I am just trying to find a off-the-shelf solution.

regards,
Teja

I think you need to resolve file name conflicts on server side. It is the most easiest way.
