View Full Version : automatically create new user folders
August 18th, 2005, 01:34 AM
I think I missed something somewhere but isn't there an option to have Gallery create a new user's initial member's catagories for their pictures? All my users' pics are being dumped in the root Member's dir at the time.

Go to the Gallery AdminCP, choose Edit Categories, and edit the Member's category. You'll see the option for:
Act as Members' Category
When set to 'Yes', any uploads to this category will automatically be placed in a sub-category named after the user who uploaded the file.
That will make the images show up in sub-cats named after their username.

I understand that this will effect future uploads, but what about the pictures already posted? Will updating the catagory counters help? I'm wondering as I did not have my gallery set to "Act as Members' Category" and had all the members make their own subcatagories to upload into. Now I'm wanting to add the mod that adds a link to each members gallery in the postbit and it (naturally) defaults to the main members catagory and not the individual member's subcatagory gallery.

You can change the setting at any time, and all the images/sub-cats will show under that user's username instantly.
