    Is there a way to bulk edit images through the slide-set manager. I have moved to the epix theme, but it strikes me that there is no easy way to caption a lot of images quickly and easily. Even a button that lets you move between pictures would be welcome!

    Hi Geoff,

    There is no direct way of doing this but it is possible to do but it will require you looking at the xml file.

    If you edit a slide set > goto “Screen Options” top right and enable “Custom Fields”. Scroll right to the bottom of the page and you should see the XML data. Copy that XML and use a site like this:

    http://xmlgrid.net

    Paste in the data and you can edit it and should be able to copy it back in and save. Test with a blank slide set first.

    I hope that helps?

    I tried this method using TextWrangler in the end. However, when I copy the xml data back and save, it deletes the edits I made to the filter tag. Any ideas?

    Hi Geoff,

    TextWrangler might be taking out all of the formatting, I recommend using the link above as it should keep the same formatting.

    Other than that, I do not know another way of doing this, sorry.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Same problem here. XML data not working.
    Even when I copy all the data from one post then create a new and paste it in the appropriate field, the new post does not update.

    Hi,

    It seems that the WordPress function is no longer working correctly for updating custom fields. I am not sure why this is but it does not update existing custom fields also. I think that WordPress have broken this function somehow.

    Sorry I cannot be of any further assistance.

    Kind regards,
    Tom
