Head over to for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

Auto selecting user's gallery category

I'm looking for a way to force the "Add video" and "Add image" cms pages to automatically select the current logged in user's personal gallery?

Right now I'm using this URL:

This will auto open the Gallery category selection up to the current user's gallery but it doesn't "select" it for them. It defaults to "member_2_members_video_gallery" instead.

I hope this is making sense and if anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Avatar should do it :).

Just a little bit of undocumented magic inside ocP.

  • 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 Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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 Composr 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.
