View Full Version : Tagging clears post info
04-11-2007, 10:30 PM
I'm going back through my photoblog to add tags to all of my images now that it's a part of 1.6.
I've noticed that for about 10% of the images I tag, all of the information about that post gets completely erased. ie. Title, categories, Text description, Date-time, comment setting, etc.
Has anyone else come across this issue?

I have tested v1.6 in and out, i havent noticed any information missing, but please report back, this must be corrected if it is true, but i dont know how it is possible...tags submit to their own table, it shouldnt effect anything other than tags

Yeah, it's strange. Maybe I'm activating some option to clear everything? I don't know...
Fortunately I've got backups of my database and can go in and manually plug all the information back in so it's nothing more than an annoyance.
I'll be really careful retagging and let you know if it happens again and what caused it.

ok...good luck, and i hope it does not happen again!

Got it. I use Firefox and open several photos in a bunch of tabs. A few times, I'll tag a photo, update, close the tab, and then realize another tag I wanted to add.
If you undo close tab (Ctrl+Shift+T) then go back a page to go back to the edit screen, all the information is cleared.
This doesn't happen unless you specifically close the tab then use the undo close tab feature.

Not a PP bug, but still good to know.

This may be a bit OT from the point of the post, but speaking of tags, how do they differ from Categories other than the fact that you can check boxes for categories while you have to type out each tag?

Ariel: think of categories as albums. For instance: you have made a picture of a flower in France.
You put those in the categorie France and Flowers, and you add tags like: flower, france, rose, red. It's like adding more descriptions.
