Honoured member

without running the wizard

I'm trying to allow users to add categories and images to the Gallery. 'Submission' permissions allow them to, but they're still unable to add content to the Gallery system.

If I'm not mistaken, there's a setting in the Setup Wizard that asks, "Allow members to have personal galleries?" (or somewhere around those lines). Instead of re-running the setup wizard and overwriting my current settings, is there a way I can edit that setting to allow users to add content?

The option in the Setup Wizard is for personal galleries, which are special types of auto-created galleries.
This configuration is described in detail in a tutorial.

If you'd like members to be able to add standard new galleries (categories), it should be a regular case of permission setting. If you have set mid level category submission permissions globally, perhaps they are overridden different for galleries. The best tool to work it out the situation is the Permission Tree Editor. Go to Site\galleries in the Permission Tree Editor, and for each group you want to give access to choose 'Unvetted add/self-edit' and also enable 'add mediumrange (medium visibility) categories'.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
