Hi all, I'm new to SmugMug and Smugglr - trying to transfer all my pics from Flickr (about 3300 of them in 39 sets). I've tried Smugglr about 5 times now and each time it stalls out about a third to halfway through. I left it open last night to come back in this morning and it had stopped about 1/4 way through last night...
I've read a few of the recent posts - seems like others are having this same issue? I'd rather not use Migratr as it downloads ALL pics to my local computer first before exporting them - and I just don't have room for that. My Pro Flickr account expires end of day today so I'd like to get this transfer made.
I'm using Smugglr 3.0 on Vista 64-bit... Any recommendations?
I have the exact same problem... I managed to move most of my photos from flickr, even though I had some problems. I tried removing and reinstallning smuglr and that workd a couple of times but now I cant get it to start the transfer in any way and I still have some sets that I want to transfer....
Any help would be much appriciated!
im migrating over 21,000 files from phanfare. smugglr is working pretty well. im getting a few skipped files.
My BIG question is smugglr didnt ask me if i wanted my smugmug gallerys hidden/private/invisable etc. I cancelled and started the wizard over but i cant seem to find the option. im in a bit of a panic as i dont want these files open to the world...help.
anyone had problems migrating video files over from Phanfare? Im getting 10 copies of each video file. I sent devbobo a pm but should have gone here first. my bad.
UPDATE: im checking my router. i think possibly i have a very intermittmant disconnect based on some error reports and speedtests. i will post and update
Hey Dev -- I'm actually sitting in the Silicon Valley SMUG right now at the San Jose Library (West Valley branch). I'm sure their Wifi has some kind of firewall, but I've been able to login to SmugMug and Phanfare w/o any problems.
Anyways, I fired up Smugglr and logged into Phanfare, then selected a single gallery section. Entered my SmugMug login info, got no error, and the "Sit back and sing some sea shanties..." dialogue popped up. Unfortunately it's now been sitting at "Album creation" (0 of 1) for about 15 minutes now.
So... Network issue? Or Smugglr issue?
Bummer - I wanted to try Animoto with some photos I uploaded to Phanfare yesterday...
Cause like... it's broken for me:
Environment: Windows XP Pro v2002 SP 2
Browser: Mozilla Firefox v3.5.3
Steps to reproduce:
- Start Smugglr.
- Select Phanfare 2.0 and log-in.
- Get list of galleries, selected a single gallery section.
- Entered my SmugMug login info, got no error,
- "Sit back and sing some sea shanties..." dialogue popped up.
- Albums get created, files get transferred
- No albums get created, no files get transferred
- Dialog box looks "stuck" sitting at "Album creation" (0 of 1) [Never moves.]
Great Andy. So is Dev around?
SmuggLr isn't working for me... it gets stuck after creating either zero or one gallery... er, whatever the topmost of the three progress bars is. It created one empty gallery on my smugmug account, but that was it. Retried several times with several different settings, no luck. Tried disabling all my Firefox extensions, no luck. Tried changing my smugmug password to something less peculiar, no luck.
My Flickr account isn't that big; about 400 pictures, and 47 sets.
Do I need to have a paid smugmug account, or should everything work with the trial account? The most important trial, for me, is to try to get my old pictures off of Flickr... if I'm sure I can do that, smugmug has my money for sure.
Suggestions on how to debug? Do I need to flip some switches or something to get additional debug output? Technical is ok; I'm a software engineer, but I don't write Firefox plugins for a living!
When were you trying ? Yesterday ? We were having some upload issues ?
Oooof. It's working, but the "hidden" bit is not properly getting transferred, so I have a bunch of extra photos. This sucks.
Also, images are in the wrong order, but that's a known bug. Still annoying though.
