Lack of interest New permission - upload image to album by anyone


Well-known member
I want to be able to restrict user created albums to allow only photos they upload themselves and not allow them to permit other people to upload photos.

I'm wondering if we could get a new usergroup permission of something like "Upload image to album by anyone" where we can restrict users from uploading photos to albums they didn't create (and which overrides any user-selected options).

No need for a new permission, this can already be done.

Firstly in XFMG options, set "Default Album Add Permission" to Owner.
Secondly, set "add permission of album by self" to Not Set (No) for all user groups.

Albums will then default to Owners only being able to add media and they won't be able to change this.
