Give members more than "quick edit" for photo details .. ideas?

Running a community set of galleries, I'd like members to be able to have access to the full photo details screen so they could edit descriptions, meta, and the rest. Perhaps just a select few based on their access, or if they are a member of a group.

I've seen this mentioned in the forums before, and to me it's an essential part of a community gallery. The quick edit option isn't enough.

I also use the fckeditor and the images my members make are derived from code snippets, which I now have the fckeditor capable of doing.

Would be fantastic if giving them access to the admin edit screen, without making them admin of course.

I tried the ICY picture modify extension, but it's too old and it doesn't work on new PWG.

Re: Give members more than "quick edit" for photo details .. ideas?

So much time spent looking for solutions to things with Piwigo.. managed to get a working v4 FCK replacement inside a FCKeditor extension, customised exactly to what I need, and it works great with the text areas that it supports.

I've seen a lot of requests to allow members to edit descriptions of their own photos. I know this can be done, and at the moment it's set  up to do that. Even though it would be better having the edit link elsewhere than in an admin bar.

SO how do I allow FCKeditor for photo descriptions??? probably hacking the admin tools extension, but I've spent weeks now editing, customising, changing CSS for all kinds of stuff in PWG. I know that there are people with much more of a clue on these things than me, but so many questions go unanswered here, and there's nowhere else to find answers.

I've posted answers where I can help people out, and given guides to things that aren't covered for Piwigo, security, backups, image optimising and good guides that will help a lot of users, so show a little love in return and help out with one basic "how to" .

Hello !
The only way I found for that was to give some members admin rights. You must trust them for that !

HI,

Thanks for your reply, even as an admin the edit photo doesn't give me the fckeditor for the description. I can't really give admin rights unfortunately people may screw things up for other members by accident.

Re: Give members more than "quick edit" for photo details .. ideas?

After digging around in the code, the ideal situation would be to give selected members access to the edit photo section from the admin area. This is ideal, because as an admin I can edit the photo descriptions and other things, it also brings up the ckeditor.

So the logic would be..

Display the members pics (with the see my photos extension)

Add an edit link to each by modifying that extension or using its code.

Then if edit were clicked it would go to the admin edit photo page where they could change things. Save and it would return to their list of photos.

It's the one thing I crave for a community gallery, just popping up a "quick edit" isn't enough for what's needed.

I don't know enough code to modify or create anything that would do this, but am almost certain that if it were an extension or core code, more people would use PWG.
