Categories Permissions & Sub-Albums
« on: December 14, 2004, 03:47:26 pm »

I've been using coppermine for 2 days now, and must stay that it's gotten a lot of plusses in my book so far. Installation wise it was a dream, guiding me to the install script, and then disabling the script by itself once I'd finished setting it up.. All in all, perfect : )

Down to the usage part, here I've hit some dead ends where I thought I was on a roll, and I thought that my giving you some feedback, maybe future users would have an even easier time of it. So I've written down some of the things that have bugged me and some of the ideas I've had that I think would make the gallery even better.

--

Ability to apply a different for config option "The content of the main page" for different categories:

example: For main page I'd use "Latest additions", but for "my trip to Iceland" I'd use "Random Pics".


--

Ability to apply user rights to categories.

2 Ideas:

1.(Categories would have a "Rights" setting of their own, like albums)
2.(Categories would be hidden if containing no albums to which the user had access) <- Preferable

example: From main page the category "Sex pics" would not be visible to the world : )
example2: "Personal" category visible only to "registered", "Public" to "all".
--

Ability to add albums inside other albums..

example:

I have pictures from a trip. Some are general shots of random stuff, some are from a specific town I've spent some time in.

Here it would be nice to have an album for the general pictures, which in turn held sub-folders with shots from the different towns, categorized by name.

This would allow me to have a category called "Travelling Pictures", which contained albums called "Iceland - 2004", "Spain - 2005" etc.. These would in turn hold sub-albums containing pics from specific locations.

--

Ability to allow different users to set up their preferred language in their "My Profile" settings

example: I don't allow users to register, but when adding them, I'd set their default language as well.

--

I hope this can be useful to you guys (the developers)

Hi, and welcome to coppermine,

Ability to apply a different for config option "The content of the main page" for different categories:

This is something most users would not bother with, so IMHO will never be part of the core code.  It is possible to code this using if/else switches, and something similar has been psoted I beleive.  Look through the mods board.

A good idea, and a more granular permissions system is something we are looking at for future versions, and dev Kegobeer is currently working on, although will not be in 1.4.

A many times asked feature, usually from those coming from gallery systems with different systems.
What you ask is much the same as creating sub-categories.  You could have the category 'travel pics, with sub categories spain 2004 etc.  And within these you would have your albums for diffent parts of the trip.

Having said all that, we are thinking of changing this for (distant) future versions, allowing nested albums.

It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here

Easy fix: show a language selector on the "My Profile" page only. The language selected by the user won't be stored in the database though, but on the client using a cookie.
