Is there a way to configure ocportal so that when a user personal album is created, by default the user has add/delete privileges without validation, to their own album?

I'm sure there's a way to do this but I'm stymied as to the procedure and can find no setting menu's that allow this. If I tick "Member synchronised" in the parent album then the album does not accept images (?)


The perfect scenario would be for a registered user to be automatically taken to their own personal gallery when the "Add Image" link is accessed, have full permissions to their own gallery, and view-only permission for the gallery of others.


Any suggestions greatly appreciated. (v 3.2.10)


Thanks

Add: I know this can be done on a per-user album basis, just wondering if there's a way to accomplish this so it occurs automatically upon user registration without any further need to edit permissions afterward.

The trick is to get the default permissions for the galleries module to be those that you want for the autocreated galleries. You can do this in the permission tree editor, setting the permissions on the galleries module.

Members will not be able to submit to other members personal galleries in this situation if they don't have the "Submit to categories belonging to other members" permission. (i.e. there is this secondary level of protective access control running for personal galleries).

You might be concerned about the permissions on non-personal galleries, as I imagine you don't want members to be able to submit to these and have them instantly validated. You can solve this by setting permissions on these galleries individually.

If I tick "Member synchronised" in the parent album then the album does not accept images (?)

The parent album must be set to accept images, as the child albums are created with the same settings.

Was I helpful?
  • 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.

Can I go ahead and third that?

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Sure can Ami! Don't think you'll get much resistance here at OCP on that thought.
