Unknown Coward
« on: February 11, 2024, 03:07:32 am »

We recently had our main menu disappear on our gallery:

https://star-kidz.net/imagearchive

updated to the latest version so could ask for support on the forum and now having multiple issues. The user galleries appeared to guests, and searching the forum said to delete the album in the user galleries and it won't display. Did that, still displays. Read to change the permissions under groups, still displays (did not touch administrators only members and guests)

Noticed as well that every category with files manually updated by the admin account shows as "Unknown Coward" with all further categories and albums gone. The files are still there as showing up in latest uploads, and clicking them takes to the album with a path as being under "unknown coward". Followed the instructions here: https://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=78754.0 but it has not resolved the issue.

Also noticing that when clicking back to the user "unknown coward" when viewing images that we can see, it takes to a whole slew of albums labeled differently, and when clicking it says "selected user does not exist" however they were all uploaded under the account "admin" which is still listed as administrator. group, still exists, and still logs in.

I have re-run the update process in case something got mixed up in the update, with no success in fixing the issue.

How do we get rid of Unknown Coward and get our gallery back to being organized the way we had it?

Could not find an edit button so further information after browsing the gallery more:

- Unknown coward shows up for batch added files as well
- Unknown coward is applying to files and sections added by multiple administrative users
- Applies to files that are in "User galleries" which popped up after updating to 1.6x
- Not all recent adds are in user galleries, some are going there and some are going where they should be

Was able to solve the issue. For future reference in case anyone runs into a similar issue, for us what the problem was way back we reached the category limit and had to update the limit in include/init.inc.php. When updating the gallery the file would have reverted back to the old limit in the overwrite. By re-adding the new limit everything has gone back to normal and the areas showing Unknown Coward are back to how we had them.
