Hello I'm having a bit of a problem. On my site I would like to restrict users to posting images within three personal galleries.
It would be perfect if everyone was given three personal albums when they signed up, but I've read that you can't create albums when a user signs up or ever besides the actual album creation screen. Is this still true?
From looking through the forums I saw that the problem was that you'd have a large amount of empty folders, but what about letting users upload photos and not name their album? They would only have the option to select their album. So if they uploaded no photos they would have no albums.
But when they do upload a photo instead of a text box for album name there would be an album drop down list which, technically, would restrict them to uploading in the personal albums I've provided in that drop down. If the album doesn't exist it would be created, if it does the image would be uploaded to that album. Is this possible?
If so, is there a way call the create album function with our own parameters, or any other way of invoking the create album function besides through the create album screen for each user.
Also what template file or other files might I be editing to create this.
Just trying to get some info before I start messing with things and find out its an option that comes with PhotoPost or something.
And I'm really trying to avoid personally having to give each user that signs up three albums through phpMyAdmin or anything like that, which would be pretty crazy for any remotely large forum.
