About This Plugin
It's that simple. All members of the Caption group will then be able to edit the captions of ANY pictures on the Coppermine. The purpose for this script in my case is to give members of the journalism class permissions to make captions but not rights to move, delete, or reset any aspects involved in administrative access. This plugin works by checking permissions in the database for members of the group then displaying the appropriate link that gives access to edit the caption. The actual caption is an extremely stripped down version of the editOnePic.php file that only allows for the title, caption, keywords, and user fields to be edited. This script does not include any of the code that allows for the display or processing of other information that can be minipulated in editOnePic.php.
I hope this code is useful as this is a feature that is too specific to make its way into Coppermine but might be a feature that people weary of giving people administrative access and only want Captions and not upload privileges to be granted.
To Do List
Make some type of mechanism that makes it clear about the group that needs to be created. Possibly through a configuration menu that runs when the plugin is installed.
Version 1.0: Initial Release
Version 1.1: Rewrote the script that allows the editing of captions and removed unnecessary code.
