heh, but i WANT certain usergroups to have personal albums, I just dont want them to be sifting through stuff uploaded in other categories by other people. See the way things are setup is that only Admins, and Staff Members can upload to other categories, and the uploads are done via whatever media is sent to us by publishers, making the Members Galleries area redundant and sorting by user messy because there is no special order to which member uploaded what plus its just more load on the server that could be bypassed. Besides since I turned off the show images from other categories option, it just looks like a bunch of empty gallery pages.
But, Certain paying usergroups will have an option to create Personal Albums for themselves.
Which is why the link to the Personal Album Index is fine, but I would like to hide the Auto Sorted Member Galleries pages. =)
