Moving an image to another album vs moving multiple images to another

Hi All,

I'm new to Piwigo, after using coppermine for a couple of years. I'm running into a small issue and i don't know if i'm doing something wrong, or if it's implemented different depending where you look.

I've got albums in albums.
example:
Actor / Chris Hemsworth
Actor / Chris Hemsworth / Thor
Actor / Chris Hemsworth / Thor: Love and Thunder
Actor / Chris Hemsworth / Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
Actor / Chris Hemsworth / Unknown
Actor / Kris Kristofferson
Actor / Kris Kristofferson / Convoy
Actor / Kris Kristofferson /  Blade II
Actor / Kris Kristofferson /  Unknown
(i hope you get the idea)

When you edit an image (click pensil), unlink the album and add a new album you can only search for a single album, not album\subalbum. In my private album there are multiple sub albums in albums. if you have images of a lot of actors and want to search for unknown, that can be a long list, but if you search for Kris Kristofferson, you only see the album: Actor / Kris Kristofferson, not the one for convoy, Blade II or the rest.

When you go to an album, click on "Edit album", then got to "Manage album photos", then you can select the image(s) you want to move to an album and when you type "Kris Kristofferson", you see also all the sub albums, so including Blade II, Convoy etc. and then you can move them to the sub folder.

Hope you understand my situation. (Not sharing my Piwigo site, because it's private)

Now the question:
Am i doing something wrong, or are there 2 different ways implemented to move images between albums?

Re: Moving an image to another album vs moving multiple images to another

You're right, the new "album selector" only performs the search on the album name, not on the full album path. I think it should.

You have another way to do it, using the Batch Manager: the auto-completed listbox of albums search the string on the full path, not only the album name. See my screenshot.

Re: Moving an image to another album vs moving multiple images to another

Hi plg, thanks for confirming i'm not crazy. :P

The issue with your work around, is that when i want to modify a single image, i don't want to do it at different locations.

If it can be added to a nice to have as a feature, would be nice.
