Download Option for Albums

CMCM shared this idea 1 year ago
Completed

I would like to see an option for downloading a whole album. After an event/party I want to provide the customers/attendees with photos which is a bit time consuming when downloading images one after another.


An option for the desired resolution would also be eligible.

I also see a practical usage example, where user(s) could "Download Original" in bulk and not have to manually download one by one. This bulk or batch downloading could be useful in backing up or moving away purposes.

@Koken, I'm somewhat disappointed that this feature has been implemented already but only as a part of certain premium themes... If at all possible, it seems new basic functionalities should be released as plugins if they can't be added to the core. Unfortunately, many sites would like this functionality, but now that it's available, they have to completely redesign their sites, or hack together a custom theme or template in order to use it.

@Rafael, It's not premium only.

It's available in Elementary right now: https://store.koken.me/themes/elementary/updates

Thank you @Bjarne, I've edited my comment accordingly!

However, it doesn't really affect my main point:

The functionality should be available regardless of what theme is being used. =)

@Rafael, it will be made available to all themes in the near future. As a general rule of thumb we will typically roll out new features in a limited scope, refine them and then make them more broadly accessible.

Hello,

waited a long time and now finally here. "Albums downloads" Thank you!


But only the first 100 images come in the zip file. Larger albums are trimmed.


Is a special character in the album title (such as "&") then the album zip file name is truncated.


Thank you in advance,

Mika / Germany

The limit will be increased to 500 images in the next release and the album slug used in the filename to prevent issues with ampersands.

First let me say that you are all doing a great job with koken.. i absolutely love using it.. but is there an option to disable it the download link? Currently i don't have any albums set to download but there is a nice little tagline on each album that says "Download" which has no functionality whatsoever. I'm using the Repertoire theme if that matters. This is what i'm talking about

Download links can be hidden by going to the Sites > Drafts area, then navigating to the Album page. Using the Settings panel > Template tab there is a checkbox to hide Download links. Support related questions can also be sent to http://help.koken.me/customer/portal/emails/new?t=484231

This should not be marked complete. There is no download button available to Regale 2 and there are no plans to support it based on this thread, http://help.koken.me/customer/portal/questions/16235024-regale-2-download-album-button-


I have been using Koken for some years now and I was very disappointed to see that you decided that Regale 2 theme would be the only theme to not have a download album button. There are plenty of places to put a button, most notable in the header section, where you already have social sharing buttons right now. I would urge you to really reconsider. Adding in a button in that space can't be more then a couple lines of code. Please reconsider, i know that most people who use this theme would want a download button. Seems silly to only leave out one theme.

Any response?

Yes, I want that download album button on Regale 2 theme. I bought that theme yesterday and disappointed not finding that download button there. I don't want to switch to other theme because Regale 2 suits my needs.

Same here. I use Koken at http://www.kaupokalda.com and promote this platform it in local community, but to use it professionally for delivering files, i really need Download button for Regale 2. Thank you.

CMCM, thanks for coming up with this idea. I find it to be a very useful option. Users of my Koken driven site like to use it.

It may be implemented, but certainly not 'Complete'.


I get an empty zip file downloading an album of 9 images, or failed download with larger collections.


I would like to remove the Album download option, and use only the individual download option.
