Support » Plugin: WP Photo Album Plus » User rights to create Albums

  • Resolved mezianedavincipotes



    I am using WPPA+ in order to manage photo album on my site which is a little private site for a little non profit organization (currently not yet operational). As it is private users must login to access to the site.

    Album are displayed via a specific page with shortcode[wppa]

    I’d like that users with profile Editor can create Albums either via frontend, either via backend. I reviewed all parameters (I think) but users with Editor profile cannot create an album but only sub-albums).
    Until now I have revirwed the followin parameters in order to try to give this access but without success:
    -Table II.H : 1, 2, 2.1 (with “Editor” selectioned)
    -Table VII: A = All check boxes are checked
    -Table VII: B: 1, 1.1, 2

    Into WordPress user management rights beginning by wppa_ are checked.

    Thus my questions are “what am I doing wrong?” and “how to do to grant this right to Users with “Editor” profile?”.

    Thanks in advance if you can help me.
    best regards

    -Table VII: A = All check boxes are checked

    It is strongly recommended to NOT do this! They will be able to delete others photos!

    Only administrators can create top-level albums. Create one top-level album, and set its owner to —public—, so users can create subalbums of this one.

    Additionally: If you want to display the covers of all the subalbums of your ‘master’ top-level album, use shortcode:
    [wppa type="covers" album="7"]
    if your ‘master’ album is album with id=7.

    Thank you for this information.
    About table VII.A, checkboxes are checked only for Editor as, in our organisation, theyu have a management role but don’t have the capacity to be administrator… standard people can only view and upload photo.
    Best regards
