    Can the thumbnail file name be changed to loose the number in front?


    picture name: pic01.jpg
    thumb name: thumb_pic01.jpg stored under /thumbs

    Since all the thumbnails are stored within a single directory, we have to prepend a unique number in front of the thumbnail filename to allow you to upload pictures with duplicate names. A lot of cameras automatically generate filenames so duplicates are pretty common.

    Just curious, why do you need it without the number?
    becuase some of us spend a goodly amount of time custome-making our thumbnails, and it's a pain to have to track them down by pre-pended number.

    1) If you're going to go to the effort of dropping the images into a driectory structure, why don't you do the same for thumbnails?

    2) what if two images in the same directory have the same name? couldn't the solution in that case be applied to identical-thumbnail-names in the same directory as well? two birds, one stone.

    How do you do that OtherMichael? Making your custom thumbnails?

    I know how to make them, but how to keep them within the Plogger system? I'm afraid that you can never change any options like 'thumb-size' or cropped or not cropped.

    I think he means just make a custom thumb then rename it and replace the already existing thumb in the thumbs folder. thats my guess.

    That's my guess too. But in what circumstances will Plogger want to change or renew the thumbs? Only in case of changing the width option, or also when moving images from one album to another?
    "Just curious, why do you need it without the number?"

    I don't need it anymore :) Tkx!

    When i started the post, i wanted to store the thumb name in a var and then be able to link it to the big picture only by using "plogger/thumbs/$var" and it would be easy to do it without the number because the picture and it's thumb would have the same file name.

    Tkx anyway!
