New user with fresh install of Omeka 2.7.1. Several gigs & several hundred files already uploaded to separate directory on same server as install.
Add Item/File dialog lists only folders/files found on my local machine, and not those on server. Can I somehow view & access the server folder? It appears I cannot simply load them into the Omeka’s Files folder(s).
Even using Dropbox plug-in seems to require adding files one by one, and (I think) also relies on files freshly uploaded from my local machine – leaving me with the same dilemma.
There is probably something simple about Omeka structure that I am missing or misunderstanding (I finally grok that O transmutes file names into its own nomenclature).
Any guidance (for a low-grade intellect) would be appreciated!
