Default titles for presentation slides are too long

Current experience from shows that users do not change the default titles after uploading the slides (media pieces): http://toolbox.calibrate.eun.org/content/content_list?filter=pieces

Too long titles make browsing the system more complicated.

I propose the following solution:

  • Only filename is used as default title. Then we would have "Slaid1.JPG" instead of "A Day at the Zoo-C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\calibra-at the zoo\Slaid1.JPG"
  • During upgrade we change all existing default titles to contain only filename.

Sorry about those filenames, I thought I had it fixed earlier, but the slash went wrong way: paths like C:/Documents and Settings/All? Users were cut. With latest release also backslashes C:\Documents.. got fixed. There shouldn't be new material with such names coming in anymore.

I suggest that we manually go through those pieces and rename them, it shouldn't take too long. (It doesn't spend minute handling each rename anymore.) I've done some in lemill.net already, but not in toolbox.

Ok, we can update the existing titles also manually.

But still we should change the default title. I am currently uploading slides and I get default titles like "Sotsiaalse tarkvara kasutusvõimalused õppematerjalide loomisel-tlu_sotsiaalne_tarkvara.027.png". I think that "tlu_sotsiaalne_tarkvara.027.png" would look better.

I propose following: We try the short "tlu_sotsiaalne_tarkvara.027.png" first, but if there exists such piece already (I think there will be lots of 'Slide1':s) it will use the title to make it unique.
