Disable users from creating albums
« on: November 13, 2012, 06:56:16 am »

Oh my... we just discovered that users can create their own albums. We've search the instruction manual and looked for an option to make it so users can't create albums and can't find where to turn that function off!
Help!

Hi,

Thanks, but that didn't work.

I'm testing it with a non-admin account right now and when I go to My Profile I can add an album.

I need that turned off.

For some reason can_create_public_albums is set to 1. I don't see a problem in the group manager so, use a tool like phpMyAdmin to manually change that value to 0 in your CONFIG table.

I'm sorry, I wasn't thinking it isn't set there. Let me look around a bit.

Go to your category manager and make sure none of the categories are set to allow registered members to create albums.
