I often create photo galleries for groups of people who want to share pictures within their group, i.e. not accessible to anyone else. I usually create a gallery for them and create folders for all the members of the groups who want to add pictures. The other members get a generic user/pwd.
In order to avoid questions and security issues, I want to restrict the access to the edition of folder permissions to the admin user only. I could do it in the top menu by adding a test in gallery_event.php that can be found in modules\gallery\helpers\ (got that trick somewhere on the web).
In any case, this means changing the code for each install, which is not very practical. Also, I believe that I am not the only one with this issue. Could we improve this with a parameter in the "Advanced Settings" that would restrict the change of permissions to admin users only?
I realize that this is not a critical issue, but if it is easy to implement, it would certainly make life easier for some people (including me).
Thanks a lot for this great product.
