Import / Creating many content items [recipe without identifiers] - possible?
Hi all, I have a content item that is basically an image, which I gather as a group and display in a slider. Everything works great when I manually create the content [upload image / select it, and display it] – but I’m now in the situation where I need to upload hundreds of images – and therefore – create a content item for each. How could I go about this efficiently? What springs to mind, is to create an import recipe – but was wondering if it would even work if the recipe didn’t have identifiers [as they haven’t been created, yet] i.e.:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?> <!--Exported from Orchard--> <Orchard> <Recipe> <ExportUtc>2016-11-14T02:14:40.3110905Z</ExportUtc> </Recipe> <Content> <GalleryThumb Id="/Identifier=" Status="Published"> <MediaLibraryPickerField.Picture ContentItems="/Identifier=WOULDNT-EXIST" /> <CommonPart Owner="/User.UserName=admin" CreatedUtc="2016-02-15T03:58:23.0865587Z" PublishedUtc="2016-09-21T03:05:57.1083829Z" ModifiedUtc="2016-02-15T03:58:23.12556Z" /> <GalleryThumbPart LargeImage="false" GroupName="testGallery" SlideOrder="0" /> <IdentityPart Identifier="###???###" /> <LayoutPart> ...
has anyone struck and sorted such a workflow - the idea of manually doing this makes me feel ill - ha! Thanks for any thoughts - it will be greatly appreciated, Pug
