Controlling the number of files for which previews and metadata are pre-fetched in Content Station 9
Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.5.0 or higher.
When a user selects a file in a Document pane, not only is the metadata and (when available) the preview of that file obtained from the Server, but the same is also done for 4 other files:
- When in List view mode: the 2 files preceding the selected file and the 2 files directly following the selected file.
- When in Thumb view mode: the files to the left, right, above and below the selected file.
This way, when the user selects one of these 4 files the data is readily available.
To change this default value, add the following option:
- File: configserver.php
- Name of option: ContentStationNumberOfItemsToPrefetch
- Area: SERVERFEATURES
- Possible values: 0 (zero) or greater (else the default value '4' is used)
