Maximum number of images and galleries per user

Hello to the community!
Searching in admin area of a freshly installed Zenphoto, I have not seen how to limit the number of images that a user can upload and have in your personal album.

The need is to have (or permit to set) only 1 album per user with a max of 10 images per user in that album.
Is that possible?

Thanks in advance to all,

    Take a look at this included plugin:

    Thank you acrylian for quick response!
    Already activated user quota plugin, but I can set only two param in plugin setup: allow .zip and default quota (in Kb). I am missing some setting?

    Thanks again!

    Sorry, I admit I haven't used this for some time myself. It is need only a size quote which you can also set on each user accout individually.

    There is an actually unsupported plugin for this task:
    Not sure if it still works but give it a try nevertheless.

    Let me know if it still works.

    Malte, unfortunately image_upload_limiter does not work. It cannot be activated (checkbox is hidden) and it says that quota_manager is already active. Even though I can set up number of images per album and avoid new album creation, it seems not working. User has no limit on images...and album also.

    This is the end? :-)

    Thanks for your interest,

    I can only suggest to disable the quota_manager. Quote/size limiting and image number limiting are different concepts so that might be the reason those don't work together.

    Wait a second... it seems working without quota manager. Great!
    So I have to find another way to set upload quota?
    What do you think if I place a customized php.ini (with post_max_size set to 10 MB) at the root of zenphoto folder, to override the default values from remote server (24MB)?

  • acrylian Administrator, Developer

    Yes, if you just like to prevent that people upload huge files then that is the best.

    The quota_limiter actually limits the max size allowed per album in total, not the limit per file upload itself

    From php.ini I have resolved max_size as said before.

    It seems working but taking a look at debug tab, it prints this:

    EXCEPTION (8192): Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; uploadlimit has a deprecated constructor in /home/accanew/public_html/gall/plugins/image_upload_limiter.php on line 33

    require_once called from require_once (load_objectClasses.php [35])

    from require_once (functions.php [33])

    from require_once (admin-functions.php [8])

    from require_once (admin-globals.php [15])

    from admin-logs.php [8]

    Should I make some corrections at the given lines or can I safely ignore it?

    Thanks for your great support!

    Yes, that is a common warning on newer PHP versions, it does nothing currently besides warning. But quite easily fixed. Get the new version here :smile: (note: new url to download!)

    I hope this thread will help other users.
