JAlbum 13: collaborative album

Hi

Congratulations for this new version. I especially like the new possibility of collaborative albums in the current version.
Is it possible to add photos directly into a subfolder, and, if so, how?

Thanks in advance. Regards

Gérard

Adding collaborative photos to subfolders would be a complex operation, both for the sender and jAlbum. The sender would need to provide the full path to the subfolder in question and jAlbum would need to parse that programmatically at the same time as differentiating it from the comments attached to the photo. Is it something that you think would be nice or something you think necessary?

Thank you for your suggestion. We're looking into this. If supported, I suggest that the title of such emails be of the format:
albumName/subFolder/SubFolder...

and that all attached images in such mail goes inside the same sub folder. (I can say that support for sub folders is already implemented on the client side, but has to be added to the server side too)

Hello. Thank you for your answers. It would be fantastic......... I want it, pleaaaaaaase :-)

Here is my gallery, with a lot of subfolder.
http://gcolin.jalbum.net/Cyclos/index.html

Until this moment, Photographers who work with me send the pictures on my mail, and I put them online.

Collaborative albums are already a nice progress. With the ability to manage subfolders, I would have (almost) nothing to do. The dream :-)

Regards. Gérard

Dreams do sometimes come true. We're now supporting subfolders, by having a subject like albumName/subfoler/a deeper folder/reeeealy deep

Only forward slashes are currently supported, but the names are trimmed from spaces, so albumName / subfolder / subsubfolder works fine.

If the folder is missing in jAlbum, it's created, so a misspelled folder becomes a new folder. Not sure what is best here....

Hi

After several tests, folders and subfolders are perfectly managed. If the subfolder does not exist, it is created. Perfect
The only problem I have is that the captions added to the photos is not included. I've probably made a mistake by entering the legends, but after several tries, I can not find

here is what I did
File1, email send with pics and comments
File2, answer from album server
File3, Result on my Jalbum Software

on Mac Os 10.11.1, Album 13.0.8, turtle 5.4.2

Thanks
RobM

I just tested with a subfolder that did not exist, it was made within the project but all of the image comments have been stripped out.

Same result when adding to an existing subfolder

The problem seems to be when you have more than one image attached.
A single image keeps the comment but two or more doesn't

Strange... The server log indicates that the captions are injected into your images. And I even tried sending your images to my album using your captions (if there is a problem with your jpegs or the French texts), and they all have caption when they arrive...

The only thing I can't check are the images after the captions have been injected. Can you email the images again to your album with captions, but not let jAlbum fetch them, so I can check them while they are in your inbox?

Would it be worth you setting up a collaborative test album, then users can send them to you for controlled testing?

I (anca@jalbum.net) have actually one album called "Collaborative" that I use for testing, but you could use that too.

I'm checking the issue you are having with the captions, and that is clearly a server issue. There are a lot of ways to email a text with attached photos, so it's tricky to cover all cases. And yours is one I haven't covered... :)

But if you send me two photos with captions to my "Collaborative" album, I can do some tests. You might get multiple email replies while I run the tests. Just ignore them....
