Importing From Stories

This import wizard will scan all existing glFusion stories and move any embedded images (using the [imageX] or [unscaledX] autotag) into Media Gallery. The [imageX] autotag will be replaced with a Media Gallery autotag so the image will continue to display in the story.

When you choose to import these pictures, you have 4 options to configure:

  • Which Media Gallery autotag to use (media, image)
  • Alignment for the autotag (none, left, right, auto)
  • Where to place the images (existing album or create an album based on story title)
  • Whether or not to delete the images from the glFusion /images/ directory after import

If you select to create albums using the Story Title, Media Gallery will use the story's Intro Text field as the album description. Depending on how large this is, you may want to edit these after the import.

Media Gallery will automatically use the image: autotag if the embedded tag is unscaled.

Media Gallery will also honor any existing alignment from the current imageX or unscaledX autotags. If no alignment is specified, then it will use your choice for alignment from the attributes entered above.

THIS IMPORT WILL CHANGE ALL YOUR STORIES THAT CONTAIN EMBEDDED IMAGES!

Please ensure that you have a valid backup before running this import wizard!
