I posted about a related issue 11 days ago, but noone seemed to have experienced the same problems as me.
However, after reading this post about the many folders created, I am now pretty much convinced that my issues are the same as what you are describing in this post,
I have about 10 galleries (10 image gallery pages with a separate gallery for each) on a site.
Here is my test workflow which describes the problem:
If I right click and "duplicate just this page" on one of the imagegallery pages, lets say the page is named gallery1 (same with the album).
I then rename the new page to gallery2, hit save and publish, go to the albums tab, create a new album called gallery2, hit save, go over to the photos tab and start uploading. Then hit save and publish etc.
(sorry about the grammar, its 4am)
Now this is where the weirdness starts:
- If I now go back to gallery1, go to its photos tab and start uploading more photos to this first gallery - I notice that the directory for where the photos are uploaded to for this gallery has now changed to "assets/image-gallery/gallery2/gallery1/imagename.jpg"
I am not kidding. - I am monitoring the server at the same time.
I then hit "save and publish" and,,, the folder now changes its name to /image-gallery/gallery1/gallery1/imagename.jpg
(which now also contains the folder ../gallery1/gallery2/ used for the second image gallery page)
- To complete the test, I now go back to the gallery2 page, upload more images to this page, and notice that the new photo gets uploaded to /image-gallery/gallery1/gallery2/imagename.jpg.
But as soon as I hit "save and publish" the folder name on the server changes to /image-gallery/gallery2/gallery2/imagename.jpg
somehow both pages are tied together, folder names changing according to the last gallery edited. and in the end, as is what happened in my old post, you get an error when the cms tries to move files (rename) from one folder to another and things get messy.
would be interesting to hear if this is just my isolated observation, maybe due to a misconfigured server, mis-install, corrupt files, etc. or if other people are able to replicate.
I guess that most people only use one image gallery per website?
and btw, thanks for a great image gallery and all the hard work put in to this and the DOM, Uploadify.
