    Is there a "addPhotosToPublishedCollection"?

    L. Hagen Level 1



      is there any function (callback) that is triggered when a photo is being assigned (e.g. via drag&drop) to a publishedCollection?


      thanks and regards,

          I have not seen what you are looking for.

          I can think of alot of reasons for it mainly preventing the user from adding images to s certain published collection, only let the plugin add and remove them.

            Let me try to explain a bit differently: I move any photos to a published collection (e.g. via drag&drop). Usually, the photo(s) will now be published the next time you will press "publish" button.


            But it would be useful to get any kind of notification or better a callback to trigger a custom user function. In my case such a user function could make some tests on the server to decide whether the picture shall really be published or not (before the user is pressing the "publish" button).


            A better example for such a callback is to handle "image moves". Currently, it is possible to drag&drop an image from a published collection to another published collection. The effect is that this photo will be "copied" and is then twice available in the publish service. That is a terrible behavior, because you cannot handle and/or prevent this! A mentioned callback would allow to check whether the photo is already available and allow to make some processing.

              What you can do is postpone the check until exportServiceProvider.processRenderedPhotos is called. Do your check here doit prior to    for i, rendition in exportContext:renditions { stopIfCanceled = true } do statement. If you don't want to process it set it to skipRender()..
