Hi there. I use Coppermine to host a small photography competition in conjunction with another forum, which allows guest users to upload their entries to an album for each comp.

When I was using 1.4.12 guests could use the custom image description fields but since upgrading to 1.5.20 they're not visible in the upload page and I can't for the life of me figure out how to make them visible.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you allow guests to upload files to your gallery, they won't be able to add file details. This feature has been disabled as it's not possible to identify the user without fail (see thread). Additionally it may attract spammers to add textual content to your gallery. If you want to enable that feature anyway, find Coppermine's configuration table in the database and change the value of allow_guests_enter_file_details to '1'.

Cool that did it, thanks.

What are the chances of having this field as an option in the config page in a future version?
