Assigning groups permissions to delete pictures
« on: August 06, 2015, 04:57:24 pm »

I have the following issue when trying to bridge coppermine and PHPBB:
I cannot see how to give permissions to GLOBAL_MODERATORS to delete photos (their own or others'). Administrators already have this permission, but I want to add it to GLOBAL_MODERATORS as well.

Coppermine install: http://bonanzatrails.com/gallery
Bridging app install: http://bonanzatrails.com/forum
Coppermine version: cpg1.5.36
Bridging app version: PHPBB 3.1.5
Test user account: Please PM me for this information, as allowing you to be a moderator on the forum would be required. I won't publicly post moderator usernames/passwords.

BridgeManager settings:
Bridge app URL:  http://bonanzatrails.com/forum
Relative path to your bridge app's config file:  ../forum/
Cookie name or prefix:  phpbb3_ghjyq
Use bridge app custom groups?:  1

Go to Users - Groups. When you bridged new groups where added there.

Attached is what I have when I go there, and there is no option for permissions that allow deletion.

Maybe this can help Delete Control for V 1.5x http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,72695.0.html

I don't think you understand what I want. I want to ADD permissions for specific user groups to Delete photos, not REMOVE that permission. Are you certain that you are directing me to the right mod?

That's not possible in cpg1.5.x. Please search our board for "moderator mode" for more information. It's a feature that has been added during the development of cpg1.5.x, but has been disabled for certain reasons. Might be possible to re-activate it or create a custom mod to achieve what you need.

Now that I have had some time to work with Coppermine in bridge mode, I find that I also cannot give user groups besides administrators the permissions to edit their own photos tags and so forth.

I need to make an official request that this feature be enabled in the future versions. After all, having the administrators delete every unexpected duplicate upload, or add tags to all the user's files is an inefficient use of administrators' time.

I have not understood many of the posts regarding moderator mode that I have read. Is there a simple way to give the GLOBAL_MODERATORS group administrator status? What code should I change to do this?

Is there a simple way to give the GLOBAL_MODERATORS group administrator status? What code should I change to do this?

Open bridge/phpbb3.inc.php, find
Code: [Select]
$this->admingroups = $BRIDGE['admingroups_phpbb3'] ? explode(',', $BRIDGE['admingroups_phpbb3']) : array(5); // workaround - store admin and guest group IDs in bridge database in cpg1.6.xand add your global moderators group ID to the array, like this:
Code: [Select]
$this->admingroups = $BRIDGE['admingroups_phpbb3'] ? explode(',', $BRIDGE['admingroups_phpbb3']) : array(5, 123); // workaround - store admin and guest group IDs in bridge database in cpg1.6.x
You'll need to re-apply the above mod after each Coppermine upgrade. If you don't like that, you can also store the admin groups in Coppermine's bridge table, as explained here: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,77383.msg375239.html#msg375239

I've tried both options, and neither option causes the user to have access to deleting files (their own or others). The option does not appear for the logged on user, and none of the Administrator controls appear either.

Another strange thing happens as well. When I set admingroups_phpbb3 in the bridge table, any value causes existing administrator groups to lose administrator permissions.
In PHPMyAdmin, when I go to the usergroups table, I see ADMINISTRATORS has a group_id of 105 and GLOBAL_MODERATORS has a group_id of 104
Therefore, I have tried going to bridge and setting admingroups_phpbb3 to any of the following:
104
104,105
105
4,5
5

Any of these options, when enabled, causes the administrator to lose access to the Administrator controls at the top of the page. It also does not fix access for GLOBAL_MODERATORS.

Is the GLOBAL_MODERATORS group the primary user group? If not, please test if it works if you set it as primary group to a test user.

Yes, it's the primary user group.

Sorry for the delay.

I'd like to have a closer look at your issue. If you agree, I'll send you my contact info, so you can send me access to phpMyAdmin and an affected test account.

Not sure why it hasn't worked for you, respectively what exactly you did. I just added a new row to the bridge table, as suggested some posts above:
- name: admingroups_phpbb3
- value: 4,5

The test user now has admin priviliges (as well as admin users should still have).

Thanks, Andre. I am sure that caching on the pages was causing me some difficulty as I tested, since 4,5 was one of the options I tried. I appreciate the help you provided.
