Categories, albums and pictures
The photo part of the site is arranged in the following way :
- Pictures are stored in albums
- Albums may be organized in categories
- Categories can be nested (subcategories)
There is a special category named "User galleries
". If you belong to a group where "can have a personal gallery" is set to YES, you will have the right to create your own albums and your gallery will be a sub-category of "User galleries".
You may only create albums in "User galleries/Anonymous"
You may upload to any gallery enabled by the administrator
This goes to the page that lists all the categories, the gallery home page

The following are functions you are able to do while in admin mode, using the admin menu
Create / order my albums
Modify my albums
The "Album category" drop down list allows you move between your user albums to set preferences. The "Album description" field is shown next the albums thumbnail in the album list. Coppermine understands the following bbCodes (the same bbCodes that are used by phpBB) in image and album descriptions
- [url=http://url]URL text[/url]
- [email][email protected][/email]
The thumbnail is the picture that will represent the album in the album list. Who can see this?
If your administrator has set "Users can can have private albums" to YES in the configuration page, you can define who can view the pictures of this album your choices are everybody,me only, and members of the registered group logged in (members only).
Non registered users are members of the "Anonymous" group.
The same rules as above apply for "Visitors can post comments" and "Visitors can rate pictures".
This is where you can view your group membership(s) and disk usage/quota
