Why do you want to insert existing users to usergroups? If you set persmisions to "User" or "All", it should work without usergroups.

Well it's not, which is why I wanted to try adding the users in my VBulletin Moderators and Staff usergroups to same-named usergroups in 4images.

I had all the permissions (except uploading) for all my categories set to Registered Users, but my mods and staff cannot view the categories or images.

I'd really appreciate a solution!

Usergroups in 4images are independend from usergroups in vBulletin. Just create usergroups in 4images, add Users to the groups and set permissions for groups.

Is there a quick and easy way to insert existing members into 4images usergroups?  I've got over 3000 registered members... 8O

Dropdowns at the persmissions screen will appear only, if some actions (View Category, View Image, Download etc.) are set to "Private" for the specific category.

Ah, okay, so no need to worry if you don't have any Private actions?

Basically, my admins and regular registered members can view the gallery.  However, my mods and staff cannot, so if I just add them to custom usergroups they'll be able to?

2. Just set the appropriate permissions per category.

I would if I could, Jan, but I'm still having that same problem - on the permissions page, there is nothing under the various headings, just a non-breaking space, so I can't adjust the various permissions for the usergroups I've created.

I'm still desperately needing help resolving this!!!

Also, how does 4images know what usergroups correspond to the vBulletin usergroups?  Do the usergroup ID's have to match, or does it depend on the usergroup name?

Nope, I'm still having the same problem. :(

Jan, any ideas as to how you can help me solve my dilemma, please?

Edit a category first and set some permissions ("View Category", "View Image") to "Private".

Okay, now I get check boxes for the two permissions in the one category that I changed.  But now they're set to something other than what I need them to be so I had to change them back, which also prevents me from editing the settings.  What can I do?

This may be an okay method for sites with only a handful of categories, but my gallery has 482 categories.  Surely there has to be an easier way to change them rather than going through them one by one?  That would take me forever on a 56k connection! :(

Please, Jan, there must be an easier and less time-consuming way.  There's no way I can go through 482 categories one by one to change settings, then edit usergroup permissions, then change settings back for each one!  8O

Check the first page or two of this thread - I remember seeing someone else with a similar problem!

No, i meant that you can't edit petmissions across all categories. You have to edit each usergroup and category step by step.

But that's the problem, Jan.  When I go to access a permissions page for a custom usergroup I've created, I get a page with my 480+ categories listed but no checkboxes are visible, so I can't change anything.  :(

Quote from: Jan
No, sorry.

So basically you're saying I'm stuck with usergroups that can't view the gallery because there's no way for me to set the permissions of custom usergroups?  8O

Cool mod Vraxor, thanks!

Just a quick note for those using the vBulletin integration mod, in stats.php find:

Code: [Select]

          WHERE user_id <> ".GUEST;

and change to:

Code: [Select]

          WHERE userid <> ".GUEST;

For it to work with vBulletin's users table rather than 4images.

One other thing Jan, when I go to edit the preferences of a custom usergroup, I get no checkboxes on the page so I'm unable to change anything.  I think it's due to my having 482 categories that all get displayed on the page.

Is there any way to be able to change a custom usergroups preferences across all categories at once, without the admin loading up the list of categories?

What should I do ?
Create a custom usergroup for moderators in 4homepage ?


Jan, I'm still having problems with moderators and staff at my site unable to view the gallery.  I know it comes down to having to create new usergroups in 4images, but how do you have, say a custom moderators group in 4images knowing which vBulletin members are moderators?

Also in an earlier post you mentioned an edited auth.php file, but it's not in the zip in the first post of this thread.

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Users cannot see gallery! HELP!
« on: December 13, 2002, 05:01:12 PM »
G'day all,

Having a problem with my gallery and its vBulletin integration.  My site's admins can view the gallery, its categories and images fine, however users cannot.

Everything is set-up and configured correctly, as there are no discernable problems for me as an admin whilst viewing it, however despite having USER defined as 2 in constants.php and view categories/images set to 2 in the database all users see are 0 categories 0 images.

Please help!

Mods & Plugins (Releases & Support) / [Mod] Random Pic in vBulletin

anyone successfully integrate random pic with the vbp?   I can't get it to work. :(

I switched from vBPortals to vBHome (from, which does almost everything vBP does but uses far less server resources, and managed to get the random pic working fine first go!

Jan, could you please remind me how to fix the users online glitch, as its happening again and I think it might be connected to the other problem I was having of members not being able to see the categories/images in the gallery.
