Orpahned Images (Images that did't get posted)

Post by admin » Wed Aug 30, 2017 1:11 pm

Orphaned Images or Images that didn't get posted somehow:

This happens mostly if users are attaching files but not submitting the post.

Admin can attach them to existing posts. If you think that you have some images missing or did not post like you thought they were supposed to, then I need the following info from you:

1) The TOPIC that you posted or the REPLY that you posted in.
2) It would be even better if I had the link to the post.
3) What would be ultimately better if you remember or knew what the file name of the image was. This way, I can go to data base and re insert image immediately.

There are hundreds of images. If you wish to view the image list, you can download the attachments. The same list is in three (3) formats:
.docx, .rtf, and .xlsx

I can also provide another file format if so desired.

Hi Donnie

I have investigated one of my photos and it is there on my build log. P1010127D.jpg. Maybe this could be an upload issue I may had, Maybe the photo was to large and failed

Can I get a file of images that where successfully uploaded with the member name included. Same with the orphaned files to compare in a database. Maybe a link I could download of the files. Data integrity was a big part of my working life. The issue might be as big as we think.

The file format is good for me. Maybe a comma separated text file so I can identify the columns needed of photo and user id

I am proud to be part of SOS family and if I can help in identifying some issues like this I will do so

Cheers
Geoff

Humm... well, it probably won't be a problem looking up all images of a member, but the entire SOS image db is over 22,000 images - :? Let me look at this from another angle.

Here is the same table WITH LINKS. If you click on a name of a file, it will be seen in your browser. I am going to delete (purge) these in a few weeks, so please look through to see if anything looks familiar.
Now, if you do, please mention in this topic of what build log does this [image name] belong to as it would take many many hours and days to sort through each of these.

I have an xls and a pdf that both have LINKS to your images. If you are not concerned about it, then do nothing. The list will be cleaned out in a few weeks.

Hi Donnie

I will toss in a database and see what the orphaned photo will tell us.

It'll probably tell you I got the images for the latest update to my Vanguard build log well and truly mixed up!

I agree. It could be a photo you uploaded. Was not happy with the build log and deleted the photo.

Maybe the photo was uploaded in your build log a bit later. These are probabilities. Check a percentage of them. Try and work out why.

Oh, I know why!
When I first uploaded them, I found two were portrait when they should have been landscape, so I deleted them, rotated the originals and uploaded portrait versions.
Then found I'd uploaded the wrong ones....
The mistakes continued!

I eventually got the right ones into the post but I assume all my 'deleted' files are still on the server!

That is handy information to know. I can identify my photos because of the name. If I can see that the same name was uploaded. It would not be a concern to me.

It'is just a matter to identify so members can check there build logs.
