Hello

I need to add image titles and descriptions to 60 galleries, which is kind hard to find because we have 400 galleries.
I know folder names and I can search em by browsing pagination but this is cumbersome and takes a lot of time.
It would be much easier if we could filter galleries in backend by folder names or by folder structure.

I wonder, do you have plans to add search option?
Which IMHO is one of essential features.

Latest Joomla, and SIG pro 3.7.0


Thanks,
Regards

Use SIGPro's Media Manager.

Hello
Care to explain how can I add titles and description to images in media manager?
I need a Search option in "SIte Galleries" how to filter it so that only shows only folders from specific folder.
Current system doesn't have any search and its not easy to find for folders (Galleries)
Thanks, regards

A better search option will be part of v4 of SIGPro coming this year. And I'll add an option to indicate which galleries have no descriptions at all.

In the meantime you can either use SIGPro's Media Manager (locate a folder and edit the .txt file that holds the gallery descriptions) or mass download (via FTP) your galleries, process them locally and re-upload. Since SIGPro does not use database tables, this should be an easy task.

Hello
I know about workarounds, in fact Ive used em.
Problem is that editors cannot use workarounds like me because they either dont know or dont want to think much about it. Its easiest for them to use backend way.
I asked for this because several users complained about inability to search for specific gallery (folder) in backend
Its easy with few of them, but it gets harder as more folders are added.

If I may add a feature suggestion, it would be nice if you could add an option for the script to read file name and automatically create image title. Several galleries have option: A button Populate image titles from file names.
Script reads filename and automatically interpret underscores as spaces. So if file is named John_Smith_-_Happy_Face.jpg, image title became: John Smith - Happy Face

Looking forward for v4 :)

The option you mention exists already. Look at the parameters of the SIGPro component. And if you use a specific naming pattern like John_Smith_-_Happy_Face.jpg, you can easily process it on the gallery layout override to "John Smith - Happy Face" (by calling str_replace() on the output of the filename).
