I will admit, I'm being lazy by asking rather then trying to do on my own as I usually do, but has anyone managed to get the Author system to work with the galleries as well as the downloads?

Hey Steven,

Great to see you here :). What are you up to nowadays?

Authors is only on downloads/news, as those in my mind are the only things really 'authored'. But I suppose there's a fair argument that the concept can extend to 'artist'/'publisher' too. Is that what you have in mind here?

Anyway, you can do it to some extent. Setup a custom field for videos, and/or images, as an author. Of this field type:

It won't link back from the author page though like it does for news/downloads.

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
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.
