Albums vs. Categories
« on: February 09, 2006, 11:21:16 pm »

I haven't messed around with this a lot, but a customer of mine that is using Coppermine is having a terrible time trying to figure out Albums and uploads.

Is it possilbe just to set up categories and upload pics into that category and do away with albums, or do you HAVE to have albums?

Seems that I have seen Coppermine galleries with just categories, and no albums.  She basically wants to set up a category for users to post to and when she does that with an album, she always forgets that she has to approve the uploads as an admin.  Isn't there a way just to allow users to post pics to a category and not have to go through all that?

I haven't found anything in the docs on this, so your help would be GREATLY appreciated.  I get about 2 emails per day complaining about how "hard" it is to use Coppermine.

Pictures have to be albums, it's impossible to have it any other way. Albums do not however need to be categories. If you put the albums into no category then they will work as you want. Upload approval is fully configurable on the groups page.

Okay

I understand this completely.  What's throwing them off is when they browse for a file, and upload it, and are told 1 file successfully uploaded.  They don't read the rest of the instructions to choose an album for it to go into.  They then click Home and don't see their picture anyw where, so they are all frustrated!

So I want to change the Approval setting for Public Albums to "No" right?

Correct.

You can change the message to be more descriptive in the language file, or try using single file upload mode.

Where do I change the single file upload?

What does that look like?

To enable single file uploads only, set File upload boxes to "1", URI upload boxes to "0" and No. of boxes to "fixed"

Great, thanks!

I am not a HUGE PHP guy, is there a way in the language section (English) to mark the text BOLD

Just edit include/functions.inc.php, replace

Code: [Select]
$return.=  '<option value="' . $language  . '" >'
with

Code: [Select]
$return.=  '<option value="' . $language  . '"'. ($language == 'english' ? ' style="font-weight:bold"' : '') .'>';
Please try to respect the one question per thread policy in the future.
