Bugs in picture download

asked 2016-10-26 12:37:31 -0600

we have “bug” in download pictures. For example, some ID have 5 pictures, but the picture does not located in 0,1,2,3,4.

There are some “deleted pictures” still take position. Like 0,x,2,3,x,5,6. These Xs will take 1k or 2k, when we download. We have to test it is really picture or not.

Can u remove these “deleted pictures” in server side? Otherwise, we have to check each pictures when we download.

Please let us know. Thanks,

Charles Wang

What MLS are you connecting too? How are you pulling the objects? Are you doing them one at a time or using a wildcard like "listingid:*" Are you using GETOBJECT or searching the Media resource?

We use

to get pictures.

This just a sample, sometimes we need all pictures for each ID, sometimes we need special ID and First picture. The problem is you still keep deleted picture location there. 5 pictures maybe take 7 or 8 location. We have to use program to trace/test which one is real picture.

You need to relocate the pictures from and take away the deleted pictures' location.

So you are using GETOBJECT to pull actual image binary files. Are you requesting each image individually? I see parameter $img_ptr but don't know what it is set to? Do you have access to the Media resource through retsiq?

we need you remove the "deleted pictures' and relocate pictures' location. This just one trigger process. Please do it. Above just a sample, sometimes we need download all pictures and sometimes, we just need first pictures. gravatar ( 2016-10-26 17:11:20 -0600 )edit

I just want to throw in many of our vendors from the Maui MLS have the same troubles. It generally involves me finding the listings with the deleted photos and manually rearranging them to remove the placeholders. It would be much more helpful if the system could automatically move photos up to replace those spots with the next photo. I am just throwing in my feedback from the MLS side of things.

Paragon allows the agent to control the photo placement, and sequence. If the listing agent only uses the "even" slots, then all of the "odd" slots would be the "no photo" image e.g. 0, x, 2, x, 4, x, 6 .... Every other photo would be a real photo, and the others would appear deleted.

The best way to get away from this issue, would be to utilize the Media Resource, which will only return photos which exist.
