    Sorry, my bad.

    I will need a little time on this one as it needs some UI change. Please give me a day.

    Thank you

    Hi Christien,

    I am fine, thank you.
    I am sorry to keep you waiting.

    there are two things that have been causing discomfort to me on this issue.

    1. How do we allow you to select the user on a large site. It can have implications
    2. How does the new owner knows about the gallery? If it works for you, Can I provide a temporary box where you can put the user id to whom you want to move the gallery.

    We do plan to provide a full featured UI and auto suggestion for user etc but unable to have it in current schedule.
    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Thank you for the reply.

    1. Why do we need to select users?

    Let me explain my requirement. My site is a kind of directory of users who create their buddypress galleries to share their photos with other users. Sometimes these users send me photos over email and request me to upload their photos on their behalf. The problem is, currently I cannot upload photos for users who do not already have at least one gallery. So, I want to create galleries on their behalf to upload their photos.

    2. It’s a good idea. All I want is; for example, the gallery I create for user ‘A’ should be shown as normal gallery for user ‘A’s’ buddypress profile.

    Thank you very much

    Hi Christien,
    Thank you.

    In that case, we don’t even need to update anything.

    here is a better way.

    Please use this plugin
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-switching/

    It allows you to switch as any user. It will not only help you with the above tasks, it might be useful for other moderation tasks too.

    hope that helps.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Great! Seems, that’s what I need. My bad, I couldn’t explain properly. I will try the plugin and let you know.

    Thank you!

    Thanks to you @sbrajesh the plugin is my solution. It is working nicely. I only wish I could switch from second user to third but I have to switch back my own id every time to switch to a new user.

    However, it is good enough and I am happy with it 🙂

    Many thanks again!

    You are welcome Christien.
    I am glad I was able to point in the right direction.

    Tough I agree that switching back is a little bit uncomfortable, It is still best for the security reason.

    All the best with your project 🙂

    Regards
    Brajesh
