Re: How to integrate Publisher with existing web site

Thanks Matthew.

I'm in touch with my FTP supplier about Linux now.

You said:-

"I can set you up with Publisher access to my dev server if you'd like to try it out."

Is that practical?

Hi Tony, sure.  I've sent the access details via a Personal Message.  Look for the 'PM' link on the top-right of this forum to access your messages.

Re: How to integrate Publisher with existing web site

Thanks Ben,

Full marks for the simple instructions.

I have got it working.

Maybe it is the time of day and/or the distance but it is slow. Thirteen minutes to create a 60 image folder.


I'll try it again in the morning.

Bye for now.

Re: How to integrate Publisher with existing web site

A lot depends on the size of the images you're uploading as well as if it's creating renditions for downloads.

Re: How to integrate Publisher with existing web site

The template you've used creates four renditions.  I've removed the need for two of them (photos-for-purchase and photos-for-download), so if you add further photos then it should now be twice as fast.

Re: How to integrate Publisher with existing web site

Thanks Rod,

I have run Four more tests (06.45 GMT).

Ben simplified the template. Yes, it is faster. 8 mins 30 secs for the same files.

Rod suggested making the files smaller. They did contain some large tifs. Dropping everything to jpgs no larger than 1800x1800 and 85% reduced the time to 7 mins and 13 secs.

That was using the template starting CRG-602.....

Taking those smaller files and doing the web creation locally (old fashioned method) took 2 mins 33 secs.

Finally I did the conversion to your server using the template starting gallery-614....

This was faster. 4 mins and 18 seconds.

I'm waiting to hear how much my FTP want to charge to move me to Linux.

And, yes, I still need to add the time needed to upload my locally loaded web folder by Filezilla to my FTP site to do the comparison fully.

One final factor not yet mentioned. Using the old method of creating the web folders locally and then uploading them with FZ means I have a replica of my FTP site held on this PC. If anything went radically wrong at the other end I would be able to recreate it almost instantly. Unless I am wrong using Publisher would necessitate me recreating each web folder individually.

Lots to think about.

Again. Thank you for your help and interest.
