Here's what I have:

  • An Image node type that includes an image file field and a node reference list that lists nodes of type "gallery"
  • A Gallery node type that lists taxonomy terms and stuff
  • A View that displays all Images associated with a given Gallery
  • Users with role Photographer who will be adding pictures to those galleries for which they have permissions
  • Users with role Admin who will be able to edit Image and Gallery nodes and administer Taxonomies.

Here's what I need:

  • A user-friendly bulk upload interface, preferably point-and-click-and-drag, that will allow Photographers to upload, say 100 photos at a time into their own directory
  • Bulk creation of Image nodes, one for each image that's uploaded
  • Bulk assignment a value to the "Gallery" reference field (both upon bulk node creation and also for already-created nodes)

Here's my question about it:

  • How can I offer user-friendly bulk upload options for Drupal 7?
  • ... which would also support bulk node creation?
  • ... and which would also bulk populate field values?

Suggestions of (stable!) modules are welcome, as are coding solutions.

    I had an answer all planned out...right up until you threw the word stable in there. Back to the drawing board ;) – Clive Jun 7 '12 at 16:17
  • Feel free to interpret "stable" loosely. Like, modules in beta are okay as long as they work. – beth Jun 7 '12 at 20:36

    Seriously. Anybody, please suggest something for bulk upload/node creation. How does Drupal not have this? – beth Jun 8 '12 at 12:24
