SubFolder Category for Images

Postby Socrates1 » Sat Jun 30, 2007 5:56 pm

When adding a folder recursively a check box stating “Enable the following option if you want to keep the folder structure. If this option is disabled, all images will be added to one new category.”

Given the folder structure:
Main Folder -> SubFolderLevel1 -> SubFolderLevel2 -> SubFolderLevel3

Instead of going to the Main Folder as a category, which is good default, can the end user specify SubFolderLevel1 or SubFolderLevel2 to put all the images in that folder and keep the structure above that folder?

Creating, after specifying SubFolderLevel1:
Main Folder = Main Category
SubFolder1 = SubCategory1
SubFolder2 = SubCategory2
Etc.

Thanks.

You can do it manually, but there is no option to do this automatically.

At a future time, will this go automatic?

So, you mean in your example, if you select SubFolderLevel2, WPC should keep the structure Main Folder > SubFolderLevel1 > SubFolderLevel2 and then put all images in subfolders of SubFolderLevel2 (for example SubFolderLevel3) into SubFolderLevel2? Correct? Seems a bit strange. What happens for example to images that are directly in SubFolderLevel1? Or to images that are in a subfolder of SubFolderLevel1? Should these then be moved to SubFolderLevel2 category? Can you give an example on how you would use this feature?

Given the folder structure: (tabbing didn't work but the colors match up, what the folders contain are the subfolders of the same color below)
Main Folder SubFolderLevel1_1 [Contains] [Contains]
SubFolderLevel1_2 [Contains] [Contains]
SubFolderLevel1_3 [Contains] [Contains]
SubFolderLevel2_1 [Contains]
SubFolderLevel2_2 [Contains]
SubFolderLevel2_3 [Contains]
SubFolderLevel3_1
SubFolderLevel3_2
SubFolderLevel3_3

Yes you are correct every subfolder below the specified subfolder would go to that specified subfolder including the folder itself and keep the structure above it.

Main Folder = Main Category
SubFolderLevel1_1 = SubCategory1 (Contains images from SubFolderLevel2_1, SubFolderLevel2_2, …, SubFolderLevel3_1, SubFolderLevel3_2, … including SubFolderLevel1_1)
SubFolderLevel1_2 = SubCategory2
SubFolderLevel1_3 = SubCategory3

OR

Main Folder = Main Category
SubFolderLevel1_1 = SubCategory1_1
SubFolderLevel2_1 = SubCategory2_1 (Contains images from SubFolderLevel3_1, SubFolderLevel3_2, … including SubFolderLevel2_1)
SubFolderLevel2_2 = SubCategory2_2
SubFolderLevel2_3 = SubCategory2_3

SubFolderLevel1_2 = SubCategory1_2
SubFolderLevel2_1 = SubCategory2_1
SubFolderLevel2_2 = SubCategory2_2
SubFolderLevel2_3 = SubCategory2_3


Should there be any images in the folders above the structure is kept so the pictures will go to the folder and matching category they are in.

Main Folder = Main Category (images from the folder go to this category)
SubFolderLevel1_1 = SubCategory1 (Contains images from SubFolderLevel2_1, SubFolderLevel2_2, …, SubFolderLevel3_1, SubFolderLevel3_2, … including SubFolderLevel1_1)
SubFolderLevel1_2 = SubCategory2
SubFolderLevel1_3 = SubCategory3

OR

Main Folder = Main Category (images from the folder go to this category)
SubFolderLevel1_1 = SubCategory1_1 (images from the folder go to this category)
SubFolderLevel2_1 = SubCategory2_1 (Contains images from SubFolderLevel3_1, SubFolderLevel3_2, … including SubFolderLevel2_1)
SubFolderLevel2_2 = SubCategory2_2
SubFolderLevel2_3 = SubCategory2_3

SubFolderLevel1_2 = SubCategory1_2 (images from the folder go to this category)
SubFolderLevel2_1 = SubCategory2_1 (Contains images from SubFolderLevel3_1, SubFolderLevel3_2, … including SubFolderLevel2_1)
SubFolderLevel2_2 = SubCategory2_2
SubFolderLevel2_3 = SubCategory2_3


Hope that helps.
