View Full Version : Member Categories
March 31st, 2011, 08:07 PM
If you have it set to member categories, if they upload photo's to that category, it creates a category with there user name, and all photo's are stored under that category.
Is there a way they can create a category, and it automatically places that category under a [user name] category.
- BLUEBARE (user name)
--Photo's of picnic at the park (user created)
--Photo's of day at the beach (user created)
Right now if a member hasn't uploaded any pictures and user category hasn't been created, so it allows him to create categories under Member's Categories section. Is there a way to get the program to force it to build the user's created categories, under his user folder?
Hope this makes cents?

Disregard, I was reading a couple of other peoples forum post basically asking the same thing, and it can't be done. Without manually doing it. Thank You anyways.

Yes, It can only be done manually by the user.

If admin creates the following user categories for the USERS.
Is there a way to give the USER Johnson only the rights to create categories under his USER category "-JOHNSON" and no other?:confused:
--day at the beach
--swiming at the pool

Yes and NO...
ADMIN should NOT create categories for the users !!!!
If user JOHNSON uploads a picture, he can upload it to any category that is in his dropdown.
Example: Main Album , category 1 or any other that will accept pictures.
IF there is a "Member Category", and he uploads to that category...
Then the category JOHNSON will be automatically created in taht Member category. This category is NOT created by admin but by vbgallery itself.
Now if user has permission to create categories,User Johnson will only be able to create categories inside the Johnson category, not outside.
Categories outside, can only be created by admin in ACP-> vbgallery -> create categories.
PS: AS admin you can create categories anywhere, but i dont know (never tried) if they are created in your member category or in the users. I think its in your own.

What is the procedure for users to follow to make their own subcategories (albums whatever you want to call it)? I have all of the correct permissions in place and I can not find anything that allows me to create a subcat under a user.
Users must be able to create albums and manage their photos. Please assist, thank you!

well what exactly is your issue? what version of vbgallery are you using?
If you allow users to create personal albums they will be able to create personal albums.
