Title: remove user albums
Post by: desert_dave on March 08, 2005, 01:35:37 am
I've got no user files left (I deleted them) but I still show 11 albums / 0 files on the main page. I can't find where to delete the albums. There not listed in the regular album creator. But I can see them in Admin tools album dropdown box.

Where & how can I get rid of them?

thank god for search...I want ask the same thing. On mine, I deleted all of the files in one user album in the user albums category (named fan albums) and since there is only one user album there...I want to go ahead and delete that category as well...since there are no files in there...I don't want it to show up. So by answering the guy's post before mine...would help me too! Thanks, for the both of us.

I found another topic which addressed a similar problem. It said, to remove the fan ablums (user category), that you must delete all of the files in the user albums and delete the user album itself. I did that, all of the files, and then I set it up in the "groups" area that no one is allowed to have a private album, and according to that thread...the category: Fan Albums is still appearing and says there is still 1 album in there. I can't see it... I'm going to try to put the private albums "yes" and ask that user to delete it...but he says he can't see it either. Please help...I really just want to remove the "Fan Album" Category.

Here is where it is:

thanks in advance

how? I can't seem to see it...only via admin tools...and there is no delete function. I'm a noobie with this so sry if this is trivial to you.

I found it. It was weird. It was there...except I couldn't see it. What I ened up doing was going to: (basically just do of image gallery/modifyalb.php)

There I hit the drop-down menu and found that user-gallery there...So i clicked it. There is no delete option there. I was about to give up so I hit "album list" and it took me straight to the useralbum of the one I had the drop-down menu on. And since I was in admin mode...the delete option was there. I clicked got deleted and my problem was sovled. The user-gallery category dissappeared just like you said (make sure about the group setting are correctly set up)...and that you delete every album.

I don't know if there is an easier way...but this is how I got it done. I think its weird how if you delete all the photos in the useralbum the album disappears on the main page...but it says its stil there...well...I hope that helps anyone who might be expierecning any problems like I was.
