moving files
« on: August 08, 2010, 11:50:13 PM »
Hi there, just wondering if there is any way to move files around via the HTTP interface.  Right now if a user wants to move one file into another folder they would have to delete the file and then reupload to the chosen folder.

there's a way, through scripting.
if you need to have an interactive "move" feature, it may be a hard job, but for a automated moving needs a single line should be enough.

Yes, I am looking for an interactive move feature for the user.  If there is currently no relatively easy way for me to implement this, it is okay.

I would also like a feature like this as I believe this is the only thing missing from the build..

Would love the option to have my admins move folders or files to any place they wish on my server.
As it would save the hassle of myself doing all the updating on the server..

(NOTE: already spoken about this with in the #266 build thread ~ sorry for double posting this)

an interactive move feature is not in my plans.
you should try to get it through scripting.

Still learning on my part about scripting..

Once scripts are found though should testing be done with in the "Diff Template" with in the ROOT?..
Plus I also take it that "[+special:strings]" needs to be added as well..

I do apologize on this N00b scripting issue

diff template should always be preferred.
special:strings is not needed.

Ok, thank you for the replie..
Just wanted to clarify on the special:strings as I never screwed with that.. However read about it in one of the posts here on the forum that its needed in some cases..
