View Full Version : Photopost and phpBB: users cannot upload
June 14th, 2005, 06:47 PM
I recently had phpBB and PhotoPost set up to share a sigle user signon.
That now works but I find that my users are no longer seeing the Upload Photos option when then log into PhotoPost.
Since I can now only see the users through the phpBB Admin I am not sure what setting I need to change.
This has happended to existing users that were converted and to new users that register (I added one today and cannot see the Upload optionA). I have the "registered" category in photopost set to Upload=Yes. What else do I need to check?? Thanks

You need to re-check your 'usergroups' found in the PP admin section > administration > Edit Usergroups > Allow Uploads? (yes)

I have checked my usergroups and the default for "registered" users is Upload=Yes. The only ones I do not allow to upload are "Anonymous" and "Unregistered". But when I look at the user profile, visible only through phpBB Admin, I no longer see the usergroup. I am assuming that when someone registers within phpBB or PhotoPost they default to the "registered" group so they should see the Upload option. So I am still a bit confused.

I changed the "unregistered" to Upload=Yes and I can now upload.
But I still have to log-in before I see the Upload option so I guess I am not understanding the term "unregistered". To me you have to be registered to log-in and setting the flag to "unregistered Upload=Yes" would display the upload option to all visitors, even if they have not logged it.
Anyway, I am getting the result I want even if I don't follow the terminology.

If you can upload as unregistered I would state to check your cookie settings and make sure they both match. Sounds to me like your logging into the forum and not logged into Photopost so this would be cookies.
I would make sure both apps are set as following.
cookie path /
cookie domain .domain.com
cookie prefix phpbb2mysql
