Dropbox--associating files with items


I have transferred a few hundred image files to the dropbox/files directory. The list of files appears under the dropbox tab. I need to associate these image files with existing Dublin Core items, but when I choose to edit an item and then select "files," the dropbox listing does not appear.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thank you.

We had some bugs in an earlier version of the dropbox plugin, which have been fixed with the newest version, 0.4. Give it a try, it should allow you to see files in the items/add and items/edit screens.

thanks, Sheila.

That did the trick. I should have stated that we are using Omeka version 1.1.

Is there any way to change the order in which dropbox files are displayed? The order appears totally random. It would be nice if these files displayed in the same order in which they were transferred.

Thanks again.

You are correct that the order in which you uploaded is not necessarily preserved.

In the new Dropbox, however, you can filter the file names and file types by words or partial words. That makes it easier to handle the files than with earlier versions.
