Quote by Mikez:2. Permissions per user/group-per - photo/album/sub album.
Quote by Mikez:Also make it were you can save changes to all sub-albums
good idea--will doThanks
Quote by Mikez:Able to turn linking on and off. (I prefer on. But most I think well want off)
You'll have to explain what "linking" isMany sites like yahoo have made it were people can not use your site as a photo host. They well get a X or a add from the host
Quote by Mikez:3. Able to make Sub albums but also a way to have a information block that can read whats new properly.
you want integration into the "whats new block"?Yes 1 of the problems with gallery is when you make a hack for the whats new block.
There has always been a problem with it reading changes to Sub-albums.
And the few that did find a way ended up breaking Geeklog security and showing link/pics to photos that they was not suppose to have access to.
Quote by Mikez:4. It well be great for sites like mine that give users Albums in the Gallery to customize there space.(No big deal if you don't)
per album themes will be availablesweet...
Quote by Mikez:
5. I really like to see something that well auto make a album when they have been given a group access. So I don't have to make them every time a user gets to that point I let them have 1. Make sure at first they are the only ones that can see it tell they change the permissions.
Users who are given access (via a group or otherwise) are able to create and edit their own albums. They can also moderate any submissions to their albums if any.But can it get out of hand and they make a bunch of galleries were they make it look trashy. See in Gallery you can give them a Album and what they do in that 1 album, who really cares. lol but if there doing it to the main index. That can become a problem for some people that abuse the right.
Quote by Mikez:6. FTP drop well be great.
Haven't done it yet, but on the list. You'll ftp your stuff, but you wont see it until the "scan dirs" button is clicked on the album management page--at least that's my plan so far.thats cool
Quote by Mikez:7. A way to sort.
sort options are available from the album editor.I think I well have to see it and see how it works on the site
Quote by Mikez:8. An Archive option for people that leave the site but you don't want to lose the pics.
I don't agree that this is practical, but if you want to convince me, go for it.3 good reason
1. If there is a fluke with the site. Say some newbie or even a plug-in submitted a delete command for a/all users. lol It's easy to back up a database. But not a gig website from an ftp
2.The user somehow hit the delete account button thinking it was save. (It happened 3 times this month lol)
3.For some reason the owner of the site liked the pick. And don't want to lose them. But also don't want to copy every pic they like, that a user submits.
Just for good messier
4. We always run into new problems. This may save a site 1 day. lol
Quote by Mikez:9. When someone is deleted, It will delete the album also unless you have Archive on.
the archive concept notwithstanding, a deleted user's albums will be deleted.
Quote by Mikez:10. Something that well tell them they have comments to there pic.
I haven't begun with the comment engine yet, but will encorporate gl's comment api's. When I get there I'll look at some type of notification--won't be email.I prefer a block that tells them like private messenger.
You may even want to add a function for people with PM.
Like how the forum well now PM you instead of email if you want.
Quote by Mikez:11. For sites that give user access, a way to add like the lattice pics added to there album in there profile page.
I'll add something to the profile page, not sure what yet. maybe just links to latest media uploads or recently modified albums.Thats fine. If we want it deferent. The function is there.
We can edit it
