Thumbnail on share page

Jump to solution

Hi all,

When a document is uploaded - the rendition is created to create the thumbnail , and we are triggering that manually as soon as the document is uploaded so that rendition is created readily.

But although the rendition/thumbnail is created - the page needs to be refreshed to see the thumbnail.

The requirement is :

Can you please provide a way so that - the moment we upload the file (img , pdf etc) the thumbnail is seen without page refresh.

Please suggest.

Mmm...I think the creation of thumbnails is an asynchonous task. Anyway, consider for example that you upload 100 PDFs files together (for example via drag and drop), it does not seem a good idea to wait at least 50 transformations of thumbnails for rendering a page in Alfresco Share. Besides, take into consideration that some document library views does not need the thumbnail, for example table or simple view.

Regards.

Agreed...

Is it possible to restrict it to some sites or folder , so that we are aware and upload less files.

Anyways we have a rule applied to folders where we have set creation of thumbnails as synchronous by making call to Imagemagick. via script.

We will make known - and restrict upload of files around 5.

But is there any way to get the thumbnails , without refreshing the page manually.

As of now - we are able to create the thumbnails via rule which creates a sync request and creates the renditions. But to see the thumbnails syill we are refreshing the page manually. Is there a way that only the area of thumbnail gets refreshed?
