Add new album from upload page
« on: September 26, 2012, 01:20:07 pm »

Hello,

I've recently upgraded from older cpg1.5 to cpg1.5.20 (bridging to phpbb3 board)
If I remember correctly, on the older version users could add/create new album from the upload page. However, I couldn't find this option now, after the upgrade.

I've tried to search the documentation and the forums, but couldn't find an answer.
How can I allow users add new album from the upload page?

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Animor,

 but: This option is disabled when being bridged.

Thank you for your reply.

Since I'm bridging phpbb3, I cannot use this option.
Anyway, I meant another option - a button to add/create new album on the upload page, as I think my gallery once had.

In stock Coppermine you always have to create albums with the album manager before you can upload files into them. Plugins may behave different. However, if there doesn't exist any album the current user can upload to, you get a message which redirects you to the album manager. Maybe that's what you have in mind.

That must me the issue!
I think that users couldn't create an album from upload window since I created an open public album. So they all have one album available for them.
Is there a way to give users a link to album manager from upload window, even if there are available albums?

Maybe there a plugin compatible with version 1.5.20?

Thanks :)

Seems that we're talking about different things. There will be a menu button if the user can create albums, at least it should. Please post a link to your gallery and a test user account with permission to create albums.

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough, sorry.
Normal users can create albums through the menu button "My Profile". However, this button name is not very intuitive. New users might not understand that creating new albums "hides" behind "My Profile".
It would be much user-friendly in terms of GUI to allow users to create new albums on the "upload file" page, where they should choose the destination album for their photos.

Users, that have no album at all, are redirected to create new album. However, I think there should be a permanent link to create new album on the upload page, regardless if the user has available album or not.
In my specific case, new gallery users have one available album, since I created an open public album. Hence, they are not redirected to create new album.

So my question is:
Is there a way to add a link or an option to create new album on upload page? Regardless if the user have available albums?

Thanks :)

Do you need it for the flash uploader, the single upload form or both?

I think the default uploader is the flash uploader, so that's the first priority.

Of course the best would be for both uploaders...

Find
Code: [Select]
    echo <<<EOT
            </select>
        </td>
    </tr>
and replace with
Code: [Select]
    global $lang_user_admin_menu;
    echo <<<EOT
            </select> <a href="albmgr.php"> {$lang_user_admin_menu['albmgr_lnk']} </a>
        </td>
    </tr>
