Hey I was wondering if there is a way to allow people to upload files, but prevent them from downloading them or other peoples uploads. I would be content right now with removing the 'My Downloads' from the Upper Navi Bar. But if there is an easy way to adjust permissions that would be preferred.

Thanks,

P

You can restrict access to categories to users in a certain group.

To remove the link from the menu, you will need to edit the plugin's functions.inc file. Find the function plugin_getmenuitems_filemgmt and remove it or comment it out.

bye, Dirk

Yea i knew you could restrict access to categories but I didnt want to have people download at all. But the removing of the link was just what i was looking for. You're a rockstar man thanks!

I ended up changing the upload folder to a folder outside of the html tree, and wanted to be able to remove that my download thing.

thanks!!!
