Thanks I will setup a demo area where we can test this functionality. But that would take another day. In the meanwhile, i could provide you with some info which might help you diagnose why this could be happening.
As I understand, PP when integrated with VB
borrowes only the pp_users > userid
column information from VB user
table and accesses the rest from VB user
Similarly, the pp_usergroups
table is updated with values from VB usergroup
With respect to my example:
I am trying to set the user with the userid = 3 as the moderator. So the usergroupid of the row which has userid = 3 should be 7 as Moderator = 7, just like Administrator = 6 when integrated with VB
. But it is showing as below in VB user
So is it that I have to make the userid: 3 as the moderator in Vb
first and only then it will reflect in PP? So it should change to reflect: PhotoPost Tables:
pp_users table - userid is derived from Vb
and usergroupid is always "0" when integrated with VB
. If it's a standalone version, then the usergroupid is either 1-7 based on the usergroup value set. If it is integrated with VB
, then the values are fetched from VB user
2. Another thing that I noticed was in case of a standalone version, the "views" column in pp_users table is updated i.e. the views are incremented when any photo contributed by this user is viewed. But it is not being done in case of integration with VB
because in the pp_users table, the views column shows 0
. However, lastphoto column is properly being updated.
Is this feature not available when integrated with VB
I believe that without the views updating, the total photo views for any user would not be possible to display when integrated with VB
Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.
