admin_generatethumbs.php, admin_thumbnails.php, English cust_text.php
Purpose of the Mod
To make the the generation of thumbnails quicker and more flexible. Changes include:
- A mod parameter lets you increase the file size limit (which is normally 1MB), since most servers seem able to process files of 2MB or more.
- Process only the Mediatypes and tree that have been selected (I generally don't bother with censuses and documents)
- Generate a list of new thumbnail paths and offer to display it.
- Displays files that couldn't be processed (and offers to hide that list).
On a technical note: This mod turn admin_generatethumbs.php into an Include file that is included directly in admin_thumbnails.php, which, in the native code, runs admin_generatethumbs.php through AJAX. Unfortunately, using AJAX causes some errors to be hidden and makes it impractical to interrupt a long-running operation.
Skip files larger than this size, in KB (defaults to 2000)
PHP crashes badly if it runs out of memory when trying to create a thumbnail, and the pristine code sets 1000Kb; that is, 1MB, as a reasonably conservative limit. I have found that I can get by with 2.5MB (2500KB) on my servers.
