Members delete/edit Gallery submissions.

Post by marvso on August 28th 2010, 2:30 am

I am trying to make it so members may edit/delete their own submissions in a public gallery album. I have set the permissions for edit and delete to "members" but it still does not work. Is it possible?

Thanks for any help!

well i tested everthing and you it seems members will only be only be able to delete there own pic's in there personal gallery.

for the personal gallery options in the acp be sure to have
(Personal album can be moderated by owner) set to yes.
then you have the option if you want to allow mods or admins approval fist.
also be sure to give the admin,mod or any group you wish to be a mod.

OK so when a member is in his or her personal album.. the will see a tab that says moderate.. they then click that and a list will come up with option on what they want to do including deleting any pictures.

Now moving on to the public.
the only way your members will be able to delete pic's from that is if you have them in a group then have them set as a mod.

but now heres the thing. if you have all of your members say in a group called (members) and you have the permissions set for that group as a mod and allowing them to delete pic's.. then they can delete anything in the album.. meaning other members.

but this is the only way you would be able to allow members to delete pic's in the public gallery. i have tried to set the permissions the way you have them and it dont work like that. you have to have the boxes checked off.. and the only way to do that is to have it set from members to groups.. and even if you have just the delete pic option set for a group.. it still dose not allow unless the group is checked off as mod.

so your bet best bet would be to just allow your staff the permissions to delete anything in your public galleries/categories.. and then the members can have control over there personal album.. but be sure to allow your staff permissions to members albums as well in case anyone uploaded something inappropriate or just have it set so you have to approve them fist..

See this is way i stay away from the gallery and never use it. plus it's only going to allow so may pic's/mb when thats full the only way to add more is to by more space.. i think.. but i dont even bother with gallery options on my paid forums. in a sense you whole forum can be a gallery and people can upload 30 40 pic's at a time through a good image uploading host.

But i understand everyone is different and a lot like to have the gallery feature on there forum.

But thats basically how it works.
May be some one else can explain a lil different or has a better idea how to work then my self but i just tested it for like the last 30 min and thats the conclusion i came up with.
