Ok, that has it working the way I want BUT now I have an integration issue. Before I decided to organized the photos better by adding additional categories, i add the following to the postbit template of my forum:
<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="http://gallery.trailvoy.com/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=$post[userid]">Visit My Photo Gallery</a></td></tr>
This would allow someone to click on the member's name in a thread and bring them directly to their gallery. Since i move the images, it shows empty galleries for the user. Is there a way to fix the code i added so it will find the users images?
Or can I set up the categories differently, perhaps move all the images into another new section, then move just the ones that i want into 2nd new section and leave the members galleries?
