Hello. I am trying to understand how the csv import works before I import multiple files. I have inherited an Omeka project and previous files to the archive have been added using the dropbox plugin and metadata was applied using the Omeka admin dashboard. I'd like to use the csv import plugin to create items, metadata and attach files to these items in one spreadsheet. I've created a filename field in my csv file with a URL to the files I'd like to archive . I've placed the files in the archive/files folder so the URL reads server/omeka-1.5/archive/files/filename.doc. After a csv import, I notice that new files are created in the archive/files folder with series on numbers and letters for file names. Is the csvimport plugin renaming the files? Does this mean the files are in the archive twice? Should I delete the original files that I placed in the archive/files folder to control the space on the server? Should I instead of using archive/files folder in the URL, place the files somewhere else on the server?
Hope these questions make sense -thanks for your help.
