View Full Version : Admin View Images Limit
03-07-2007, 04:05 PM
Can't find any threads on this subject, so I'm asking here.
When you are in the admin panel, is there a way to make the view images page limit the number of images it shows by default? Right now the default is to show all images, and since I've had my blog for awhile that means a whole lot of images are shown, which means the page takes FOREVER to load. I'm sure there is a setting for this somewhere, but I've forgotten what/where it is.
Thanks for any help on this.

Good question Birdie. I think I remember having that option before I upgraded to v1.5?

you can limit the amount of thumbnails in a row
you can limit the amount of thumbnails in an archive page
but Birdie's whish is really justified as this is not a feature in the moment
At the bottom of images page youve got option:
Show xx images per page. [Go]

Geos, no, there is a bug in the image view script:
The button and page navigation only show up in the moment when there are more images than defined to display on a page.
But since you can define this number only when the button comes up, you can never define it and the button never shows...
You have to hack the admin/images.php somewhere to predefine a number of thumbs tho show, I don't remember exactly where because I rather live with the "all images" list
So I missed it because my current version (1.6 SVN) is fixed. Beta of it should be public in pretty short time :)

Okay good. Someone else remembers having paged images before too. I thought so, but wasn't 100%. I do not see an option at the bottom of that page to limit the number of images shown. I do see an option to display them according to category, but the page has to load before you can see that. I've had my Pixlepost blog for over 2 years. There are over 750 images that need to load before I can change any categories. I have a slow internet connection. Enough said. ;-)
The other thing that would be *REALLY* nice to have would be a mass delete option. My server is getting full....
Its all right there now (maybe mass del isnt so complex but it is possible to del all images in 2 moves) :D

I have the opposite problem. I am using my PixelPost archive to sell images to book publishers, and they are asking me for more categories to better sort my shots (I also have more than 500 images posted).
I am not looking for how to page the Browser window view; I've got that figured out.
What I want is to be able to view more than 10 images at a time in my ADMIN panel so that I can selectively sort images and categorize them. I'd like to be able to just click drop-boxes to assign all photos to certain categories, but that's a substantial mod.
For now, I'd settle for being able to view all images. Is there a command-line instruction that will force the database to return more than 10 images at a time? I am currently seeing this:
That gives me 10 images, the 10 most recent.
If I hit Older Images I get this:
I can navigate that way page-by-page by changing the number (i.e. 10 to 230, etc.)
How can I see them all?
i.e. you can change tag showing thumbs in archive from this supporting page-by-page mechanism to this supporting all at once.
Right now I suggest to note (using paper and pencile or computer and text editor) image IDs for each category and then to use my addon called Mass category edit or something similar. There is list of titles and image IDs which you can select and assign i.e. to few cats at once :)
