uploading makes filenames lower case :-(

Post by rogerco » 18 Jan 2018, 00:29

It seems that when you upload a batch of files using commander then it automatically makes them all lower case. Is it possible to turn this behaviour off? - I use case sensitive files names for various reasons and it is a pain having to rename them after uploading with commander.

Hi Jan,Sorry for delay in replying - I must have turned notifications off - I have v3.03 the latest version from here installed a week ago. Joomla 3.8.3 using php 7.0.27 on Apache 2.4.25.

Hi, try to open this file:

administrator/components/com_phocacommander/helpers/fileupload.php

line cca 294 and try to change

FROM:

Code: Select all

$filepathImgFinal 		= JPath::clean($pathFolder.strtolower($file['name']));
TO:

Code: Select all

$filepathImgFinal 		= JPath::clean($pathFolder.$file['name']);
Let me know if this helped?

Thank you, Jan

Hi Jan,
Yes that works perfectly (and I could even make the change from within Phoca Commander rather than logging in to cpanel :-) ).

In case some people like the automatic conversion to lower case perhaps you could make it an option if and when you next do an update otherwise the change may get overwritten on update. I'll make a note to myself to check anyway if PhocaCommander is updated.

Many thanks.

PS how do I mark this thread 'Solved'?

Hi, Ok, added to feature request list (I need to do some more tests if this will not break any other feature).
