In fact we're using phpwebgallerie for our montly photo contest here:
http://concours.megapixel.free.fr [^] and we the vote is over we want to let the users to add comments but not to the upcomming contest, that's why it would be really good if we have a way to define which category is allowed to have comments.

Beautiful gallery ! And excellent Contest MOD. I would be very proud if you could open a topic on the forum section "testimonials and show off" to explain how you did it.

Then, your request... Since you have very few categories, I propose you a simple way to solve your problem :

1. adding a field in categories table comments_enable enum('true','false')
2. retrieving this info in photo.php
3. still in photo.php, if this field info is set to "true", comments are available

Setting this parameter would need a direct access to the database (PhpMyAdmin). Would this convince you ?

unfortunately I'm not the user of the account that host the gallery and the person who is isn't a technical person at all :-( So It might be a better solution to have in the admin section the ability to define which category is eligible for commenting. I was thinking about the page admin.php?page=cat_modify&cat=catid, with comments turned on by default and the adminuser will have to go to the category edit panel to disable the comment...

But I keep the solution in mind and will present your solution to the user comunity to see if they agree to have a gallery upgrading ... they are very reluctant to any changes because it works at the moment!
