Private Albums / Private media icon on individual image view


Well-known member
When viewing an image from a private album, there doesn't seem to be anything on the image/media view page that would tell me (or a mod) if the image is private. It seems like a moderator could potentially comment on a private photo, causing the member to wonder if his media is really private or not.

I see the Public or Private status when looking at a members albums but not the individual images. How would a moderator know if an individual image was private or not as I assume that New Media Block will display an image from a private album if the moderator permissions are set to Override Media Privacy.

Or should we just not override media privacy and leave private images truly private?

The privacy details are currently only shown on the album level.

You could not override the privacy, though that would interfere with your ability to moderate the content. It may be worth making it clear to your users that moderators can see all media (and presumably user profiles) so that they can effectively moderate.
