    Having trouble getting the sitewide gallery permissions working the way I want them, I only have the sitewide gallery enabled but it seems only I can upload to it since im the Super-admin, how can I enable normal users to upload. I want all registered members to be able to upload. I have already enabled the ‘can_upload’ permission for all members both in wordpress and buddypress.

    Commenting permissions are working though…

    But I don’t want to use the ‘user’ or ‘group’ galleries…

    I did try in bp-custom.php

    [code]

    `function mpp_custom_user_can_upload_photo() {
    return current_user_can( ‘upload_files’ );
    }

    function mpp_custom_upload_permission( $can_do, $component, $component_id, $gallery ) {

    if ( empty( $gallery ) ) {
    return $can_do;//do not change the permission
    }

    $type = $gallery->type;

    if ( $type == ‘photo’ && ! mpp_custom_user_can_upload_photo() ) {
    $can_do = false;
    }

    return $can_do;
    }

    add_filter( ‘mpp_user_can_upload’, ‘mpp_custom_upload_permission’, 10, 4 );

    [/code]

    but doesn’t seem to work. The code is modified from another topic ‘Role Based Permissions

    Hi Ian,
    I just tested and you are right about the issue. The problem happens because the plugin is unable to decide the current component to be ‘sitewide’.

    Please allow me 1-2 days to put this and a few more changes(Currently, if you disable the BuddyPress integration, Even the shortcode for creating gallery is not working). I am working on a fix to properly detect the components.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Just tested thew changes from the git repo, still getting no permissions to upload from normal users
    (with the ‘can_upload’ permission) either in the gallery itself or the widget.

    Is this happening for a Gallery created by the user? by default, A user can upload to their own gallery.

    If you want to have some galleries where everyone can upload, please use this plugin

    https://github.com/mediapress/mpp-global-shared-gallery

    You will need to mark a gallery as global shared to allow everyone to upload to it.

    Otherwise, you can use the shortcode [mpp-create-gallery] to allow users to crate gallery and upload.

    Hope that helps.

    ah, thats working now (at the very least it’s enabled the upload widget for normal users which is all I needed).

    Thankyou, this last part was probally me mis-understanding something…

    Anyway, thankyou again, Love the system, and kudos on the excellent user support…
