Calendar only showing some photos

Firstly, thanks to the developers of this great free tool! Awesome.

I've recently installed piwigo 2.4.3 on ubuntu 10.04. I have a windows share from which photos are automatically slurped in to piwigo (using REST api call). My family just need to chuck the photos on the share, and hey presto, they appear on our intranet. Great!

I have about 15000 photos in my collection.

The problem now is that the calendar view only shows a subset of the photos (around 400). I've tried _all_ the maintenance options, but to no avail. The photos are not organised in to useful albums (I gave up on that ages ago), so the calendar view based on Exif data is kind of important to me.

Can anybody shed any light on this? Or perhaps tell me where I can start looking (I speak PHP to some extent)?

Re: Calendar only showing some photos

Good idea. Total images is: 12253 and calendar is showing about 350.

Re: Calendar only showing some photos

Yea.. i've noticed that link to calendar from menu leads to 'created-monthly-list' but when you click on the icon of calender (talking about stripped theme) in the upper menu it leads to 'posted-monthly-list'.

Since creation date is blank by default, 'created-monthly-list' is empty. But 'the second' calendar shows everything perfectly. I don't know why there are 2 calendars but I think we should be able to choose which one do we want to show?

thx for the reply
There is indeed two kind of calendar
see screenshot below

I have never tried but you could change that config

// calendar_datefield : date field of table "images" used for calendar
// catgory
$conf['calendar_datefield'] = 'date_creation';

Re: Calendar only showing some photos

it worked for me but since i'm more interested in posting date so I've changed it to

Code:

// calendar_datefield : date field of table "images" used for calendar
// category
$conf['calendar_datefield'] = 'date_available';

As for kipz - if you want to see creation date i'm afraid that you will have to add this date on every picture in admin panel...

Re: Calendar only showing some photos

You can set the creation date via the batch manager. And set your camera right ;)

Then this is strange because most of my 12k photos have EXIF dates.

Something weird going on here. Creation date should be fine.

Re: Calendar only showing some photos

Hello
this is the default config of piwigo :
// use_exif: Use EXIF data during database synchronization with files
// metadata
$conf['use_exif'] = true;

// use_exif_mapping: same behaviour as use_iptc_mapping
$conf['use_exif_mapping'] = array(
  'date_creation' => 'DateTimeOriginal'
  );

you can change that and check the default config using Localfiles editor
