View Full Version : restrict full size view in photopost

June 14th, 2008, 11:42 PM
I'm currently using Coppermine but like many others i think their support stinks :mad:, id like to change, maybe to Photopost but before id'like to know something :

i have 2 mods that are very useful:
- one that restricts access to the full size picture to registered users only, instead of showing the full size picture, there's a download button that the user uses to download the picture.
- the second mod works with the first and limits the download of full size pictures to something like 20 per 30 days (so i can limit my bandwith), configurable by usergroup.

So my question is, can photopost do that, or if not is there some mods that can do it ? (since i don't have access to the 'Mod Corner' i can't check it myself).

well, no one can answer these simple questions?
Can photopost do this or are there any mods that can do this ?

You can restrict guests from viewing anything but thumbnails by default through a setting in Admin area. Guests will get a message saying they must register. I do not know what modifications are posted since that is outside support but the second thing is not contained in Photopost so you would definately need to write some mod for that. You gain access to the modifications forums once a customer.

Yes most who use coppermine come to our product because of the lack of features haphazzard coding and lack of support with freeware like that.
