I've installed EasyFile successfully, but I don't want the site admin to have to approve files submitted for upload. Instead, I want the files to go directly to the filestore. I noticed that Root users' files don't require moderation, but I don't want to extend Root access to the group of users who will have access to the filestore (a subset of all users).

How do I disable or remove the EasyFile submission moderation feature?

CAVEAT: I'm not very PHP literate, but with clear directions, I can dig and figure out where to go and what change needs to be made.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

I'm not familiar with that plugin, so I can't really help you there.

Just wanted to point out: Do you really want anybody to be able to upload anything to your site without control? Think about viruses, warez, porn, ... Things may be different in a controlled environment (like an intranet). But on the web, I don't think it would be a good idea.

bye, Dirk

Hi Dirk,

You make an excellent point, and my resolution for that is that only this subset of users has access to EasyFile. They're in a specific security group, and EasyFile is only available to that group.

Anyone else who attempts to access any documents in the EasyFile filestore will receive an "Access Denied" message.

Thanks!
