Hey lovely HF team, it's been a while since I have uploaded a photoset on to HF (lack of my arse being out for a bounce as often as it should) but was hoping there may of been an upgrade to the upload feature that would allow users to upload multiple images as a time to a photoset.

Just wondered if there were any plans for this in the near future?

Big love, Spike x

Hey Spike, good to see you on Sunday!

Our hands are tied with this version of the site - we can't integrate modern technology with the existing setup and it is very costly in terms of time and money to develop these features from scratch. We have been working on a new version of the site but that's a labour of love which is done in spare time so I can't make any promises.

Funnily enough, I ran through this exact procedure the other day to upload my Winston Memorial images and I have to agree, it's very cumbersome compared to Facebook, Wordpress or in fact any modern site.

The main issue I noticed is the 8Mb zip file size limit; that was fine back in the day of 200k images but I had to create quite a few to get my pictures uploaded. I can look into increasing this, think we can set to 16Mb fairly easily and maybe a multiple.

Any thoughts on what would work in the interim?

Hey Matt,

Good to see you as always. Your answer pretty much summed up my thoughts as to why. HF is indeed a labour of love and spare time is few and far between, it's great it is still going.

The 8mb file size wasnt an issue for me, as I normally reduce the size of my images to 1000px-1500px on the long side when uploading to the web and he speed of each upload is nice and nippy too.

It was actually quite nostalgic to post up a photoset on here, been a while, think Jedi Paul's fundraiser was the last time and god knows before then. Still debating whether I should bring my wit (sarcasm) back to the general forums again Big grin Devilish Big grin

If there is already a new version being worked on then no point in getting distracted in the mean time when the ultimate goal is already in progress.

Will have a think and bounce a couple of ideas off a friend of mine when slightly less snowed under and let you know if we have any creative workarounds!

Dan suggested this client-side script which might work

https://www.jqueryscript.net/form/Multi-file-Image-Uploader-Plugin-With-jQuery-Image-Uploader.html

But looking at photo uploads, we've had 2 this year (ours) and one last year, so I don't think it's a pressing issue. People tend to share on FB which supports more formats including video so we're not likely to compete.

I'll check the 8-16Mb maximum zip file size, that would certainly have reduced the number I created and uploaded and see us through.
