View Full Version : Categorie additional fields not seen in my album

I do not see the member galleries additional fields in my album nor in some other albums. What gives. Why is this not in my album?

Additional fields are per category not album. They only exist for the specific category you define them for. Personal albums do not have the ability to do extra fields.

So you mean I would have to post the photo in that categorie to see the addtional fields?

The default categorie members galleries has the additonal fields. It seems to me like you would expect them to trickle down. Else why put them in that categorie at all. Nobody posts images in the categorie called members galleries. they create their own album and post images in there.

If you define an extra field in a category it will show in that category. They will not trickle down into personal albums you create. Albums which a user creates and Categories which you create and assign fields to are two separate things.

It would be a nice feature to have. My site is all about astronomy photos and people like to know the details of each photo like how it was taken.
Is there another recomended way to just load photos in categories. The issue with that is that people like to have their own album. Thats kind of the whole point of this site is a place for folks to upload into their album and they can send their friends to come look at them.
Is there something I can do different?

If you want uploads into categories you need to disable personal albums. There is no way if you allow personal albums to make users not upload to them.
