Old website to new website transfer

#1

Post by sbstanger »

I have a question concerning transferring photos from the old website to the new one.

I have a calling which includes taking and posting pictures of the members for the church website. Although I have finally figured out how to post on the new website, for the longest time I was posting on the old website. Now the level of people with photos far out weighs that of the new website. My Bishopric has been telling me to start using the new one, however I don't know if there is a way to move the old to the new without doing it one by one or getting completely new pictures. There are over 150 members in our wee YSA, that in which changes contently... by the time I get half way done I'll have to start over with all the move ins and move outs.

So if there is any way I can quickly change this over any advice would help. If not just a "your out of luck there chuck." would help too.

As I noted in this post, there is no way to do transfer photos from the old site to the new directory -- but you probably don't really want those tiny pictures on the new directory anyway.

Also, the rapid turnover in your YSA ward means that even if you could transfer the old photos, you'd still have to make a significant effort for all the new move-ins. One advantage of being in a YSA ward is that your average member is probably fairly tech savvy, and you could ask them to upload the photos themselves. That wasn't possible on the old site, but it is with the new one -- a clerk or website administrator then simply needs to approve the submitted photos.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
