Thank you, but I have no issues installing the Lightroom Smug Mug Plug-in.
I'm looking for a custom plug-in to automatically update everything from my
LR catalog and folders to the identical SM folders and galleries. As I said
before, currently I have to drag and drop manually to accomplish a
duplicate situation between the two collections and it's extremely time
consuming. How can I get something written to do this automatically?

I don't believe the existing Smugmug plugins will mirror the folder structure in your catalog. The plugins are all based on the LR publishing paradigm, where the plugin syncs the published collections in your catalog with the Smugmug service.
Perhaps changing your workflow would be another way to avoid manual drag-and-drop from folders to collections: Rather than use folders within LR to organize the photos, use the publish collections themselves as the primary means of organizing the photos. Import the photos into LR from whatever folders they happen to be stored in. But then organize them into the desired hierarchy using the LR publish collections.
If you want custom plugin programming, you could post a note on the Lightroom SDK forum, where plugin developers hang out: Lightroom SDK . Or you could try contacting Jeffrey Friedl, the most expert developer of LR publishing plugins (but I don't know if he does contract work).
Thank you !!! I willow into both of these contacts.
