Improve sorting of collections by file name or entry date

I would like the ability to sort photos in a collection (e.g., For Sale) by entry date or file name. I have thousands of photos for sale and it's impossible for me to find a particular one in that collection since they seem to appear in a random order. The three available sort options are not useful to me for this purpose.

    I believe the current browsing experience for images in the Fotomoto Dashboard would need some development love. Here are some user stories:

    - As a user I would like to have additional sorting options like file name, date or URL.
    - As a user I would like to be able to manage images by name without loading thumbnails. This will improve the experience with slow connections for Travel blogs. I can't express enough how painful it is to load so many thumbnails in Nepal with 10 KB/s connections, for example.
    - As a user I would like to be able to have filters in the image gallery to filter images by name, date, URL pattern and size.

  • This is my only serious problem with Fotomoto. Occasionally, I need to make my most recent post "Not for sale" but, until it appears in my dashboard and I can actually find it, I can't edit its settings. Even after a day and several views, I often can't find the image in the 4000+ that Fotomoto knows about. Some way to (a) force a refresh such that new images appear in the dashboard quickly and (b) a way to sort by post or adding date would be enormously useful.

    In a perfect world, of course, I would also have the ability to set the "For Sale" state of every image via UI elements added to my Wordpress "New Post..." screen using the Fotomoto plug-in but, assuming that's more effort, some easy way for me to set an image's state quickly via the dashboard would be OK.

  • Hi all,

    This is an important feature request and one that we'll likely move to "planned" status as time permits.

    For now I do want to offer a trick that you can use to help you locate an image - first send yourself an eCard of the image you're trying to locate, then in the All Photos album in the Store section of the Fotomoto Dashboard, choose "eCard" from the Sort By menu, and the photos with the highest eCard counts will show first. Of course this is not a replacement for the requested features, but it's helpful in a pinch!

    I hope that helps and kind regards,
    Derek

  • Any info on the current situation of this? I'm trying to put Fotomoto in my site but the backend is horrible! Images are appearing randomly because they can't be sorted by either article or date.
