Is it possible to search a server folder containing image and video files that were previously uploaded via ftp and then loop through those files in the entry template?
Each entry has a unique Log ID number field which is also part of the image or video filename.
- Log ID: 12345
- Image filename: 12345--img-01.jpg
- Image filename: 12345--img-02.jpg
- Video filename: 12345--vid-01.mp4
Conceptually on the template page...
- Grab the entry LogID field (ex. "12345")
- Search the media server folder for all filenames that begin with the LogID
- Display all of the found images and videos
I found this question which is very similar but I don't have the skills to write a plugin.
