Topic: Remove filename suffix and change sort order


I inadvertently posted this question in another forum but it is perhaps more appropriate here, sorry.

I am using svBuilder with SimpleViewer Pro and its Photoshop plugin.

Now for my problem:

For example.... I have a number of jpg images that I would like to display by date and it would saves a lot of time if the filename can be used as a caption (without looking like a filename - the default situation).

So the first question is.... can you add a tick box or something so that I can optionally remove the three letter file extension from a filename when it appears as a caption "myphoto.jpg" appears as "myphoto".  It could save a lot of tedious editing of the gallery.xml file

The next thing is file ordering.

At the moment, and quite logically, when a batch of files are processed using the SimpleViewer_v2 script in Photoshop it generates  thumbs and images in ascending order.

I would like the option to choose descending order instead. (Have I got that the right way round?)

The value to me is that I could have a number of images called:

  2008 Course Photo.jpg
  2009 Course Photo.jpg
  2010 Course Photo.jpg

and if I want to display the most recent one first I could tick a little box and your magic software will put them in the appropriate order... and remove the .jpg extension so the filename can become the caption.

  2010 Course Photo
  2009 Course Photo
  2008 Course Photo

At the moment I have to prefix each filename with a number in reverse order so they get sorted how I want them and then edit the gallery.xml file to change every caption.

Maybe there is already a way to do this but I cannot see how.

I am not a programmer but I do like to fiddle about a bit and create my own web sites, the one in question where I am using your software is

Thanks again and I really appreciate your software

It looks as though this is sorted in the new Beta version... thanks.
