Photo moved, needs re-approval?
 
On my gallery, I have it setup to require an approval on all photos before they show up in the gallery. However, when a user moves their 'Approved' photos to another area, they go back into the approval queue. Why? Once a photo is approved, shouldn't it be able to be moved around without needing re-approval. Is this an option setting somewhere that I'm missing?

Nope this is intended behavior

If an admin wants approval it is just that approval hense if a user makes a change to any image it is marked for approval again so that you can approve the change they made just like with a normal upload.

We listed to the majority of what our users want when coding features. If admin want approval they get just that. If you would like to ask how to modify your install so that on edit the image is not set back to approval then you can discuss code modifications at http://www.photopostdev.com

Why would I care if they move or rotate a picture?

Well the majority of users who desire approval do. This is the properly coded aspect of this feature.

Easy enough though in editphoto.php

Find this

if ( $User['usemod'] == 0 ) $moderate = 1;
else $moderate = 0;

change to

$moderate = 1;

When did the majority of users vote on this? I must have been out of town, because it's silly!

Regards,

Matt

P.S. I have three licenses, do I get three votes?

Perhaps for your use but for many others it's not so silly given that the actual image can be changed simply by editing the submission after approval. You could also try running any type of photo contest and see how many people try to move their images directly to the "winners" category once they figure out they can... then there's the stubborn members that decide they want their photo in an unrelated category and continually try to move it despite admin putting it in the appropriate one in the first place. Unmoderated image editing may work for your site and audience but for many others it would be a huge risk.

Matt besides 2 threads from users there are no users who have ever stated this to be silly. Approval is approval and this is the desired and coded working of the program.

At any rate there is a photopost suggestion forum which you may suggest a feature if you want. Given Photopost has thousand upon thousands of licenses and only a hand full of users may complain about the normal functionality of a feature it is definately correct to say the majority of users approve of a feature.

PS I own 3 licenses as well ;)

Okay, I changed the line to this and nothing changed. Still requires a moderator to approve the move. :confused:

if ( $User['usemod'] == 0 ) $moderate = 1;
else $moderate = 1;
