I beleive this is already a feature

Display User Timeline Photos within Gallery
Disable this feature if you do not want to display user timeline photos within the photo gallery.

its the setting right below the current settings you quoted above in the Photos app

I could be wrong but i think thats how it works but haven ttried as I dont have a live site right this second(still going thru all the setup process)

I DO NOT see that same setting for the Video app


Thanks for the input, unfortunately, that's not how that setting works. The settings is to display user timeline photos within the photos app on the user profile and in the main photos app.




Setting enabled: When user posts profile photo or photo to timeline, it creates an album called "timeline photos" which can be accessed via the user profile and choosing "photos" from the user profile menu. The same photos also appear by going into the main photo app index (from main menu for example). So their photos can be accessed outside of their user profile. The main photo app holds all photos, site wide.


Setting disabled: When user posts profile photo or photo to timeline, the timeline photo is not added to either section of the photos app. You cannot view them on user profile or in main photo app. However, all user profile and cover photos are STILL added to the main photo app, accessible outside of the user profile. The main photo app holds all photos, site wide. Disabling this setting only disables the creation of the timeline photos album and storing of timeline photos. It does not stop photos from being accessed through the main photos app, outside of the user profile.


Try it out. I believe this behavior is suitable for maybe a photography website or something like that but it is not suitable for standard social media. No one wants their photos accesible outside of their profile. Even if they are public, why broadcast them to the whole site? Doesn't make sense.

I can't believe this cannot be configured by the admin for this behavior :)

Users don't want everything they do to show up on the social network wall (liking page, changing their photo profile, adding another friend...)

Please take this into account for the next updat.

Yes...but this should be listed in the invite app as well as a way to export that list.  It should also have a limit on how many invites a specific group (register users) can send as well.

I know there are language packs for entire sites but do get something like that on the fly phpfox would have to start putting ads all over this forum to get their net worth up to 512 billion and their employee count up to 45,000 instead of the dozen or so employee they current have :)

Maybe you could direct them to something like this...

Not working? Try refreshing the web page. If it’s still not working, right-click anywhere on the page. Then, click Translate to [Language].

I just tried german and it worked.

Dear websistema2013,

Thank you for your suggestion for the new app where admin can change the design for the site. Your suggestion will be taken into consideration seriously in our future upgrades.



Thank you very much for your reply. Believe me, this is very necessary for open social communities. I will look forward to new updates.
