Allow administrators to select the keywords that can be used
« on: December 21, 2015, 01:22:54 am »

Users should only be allowed to use a selection of keywords defined by the administrators. This will prevent users from creating keywords that should be the same but aren't, and will make keywords neater and more useful.

Good idea as a new config option. I see 2 possibilities:
1. Just allow users of the admin group to enter non-existing keywords
2. Set this based on the user group(s) each user belongs to.

YES YES YES I second this request.

The keywords that gallery users enter often get out of control, with people trying to add different kinds of punctuation to separate keywords; utilizing lowercase or capital letters; running two words together; those ever=populars misspellings, etc, etc etc.

I use the keywords with CPM Fetch to post pictures in the forum and the results can be a little wild. I have to go back to the individual files and edit them when i get a bad result and it is rather time consuming.

Thanks,
L.

Autofill text is another reality that we deal with (as you can see from the misspellings on my previous message).
