Admin Status to Certain Album
« on: May 06, 2004, 11:21:41 pm »

First of all thanks for such a great product.  Now to the point.  

I have a website that serves as a nightclub guide here in New York.  This program works great because it allows me to add pics easily by nightclub.  There's also a section where each nightclub has an album with all of its flyers for the month where users can view them.  Our webpage has become popular and more nightclubs have signed up, which makes it time-consuming to update each nightclub specific album with their flyers.

 Is there a way where the user (ie nightlclub owner/manager) can have the ability to upload its own flyers/pics?  However, this album must be visible to all users (registered/non-registered). And this user (ie nightclub owner/manager) should only have the ability to upload files into his specific nightclub's album.  In other words if we are working with 10 nighclubs, Is there a way where 10 users can have upload ability to 10 different public albums.  But not have upload ability to the rest of the albums.

Well I hope I phrased it right.. thanks for any help.

Make the individual nightclub albums "user galleries", not within the public category. This way, the nightclub owners are the only ones who can edit/upload, all other users are able to browse only. Just relabel "user galleries" with "night clubs" (using the cat manager) and put the night club owners into a special group. Grant only this group the right to create albums or upload pics (using the groups manager).
For more details, a link might be helpful.
