Re: Posting Campaigns At Hades-Combine
Why can't I use FireFTP or another FTP client, and my user & password?

Uh, regular members don't get FTP access? :wtf:

Oh... but what's the difference between PHP upload & FTP upload?  Same goal, same result... does it allow you to muck with something you're not supposed to?

Yes, the FTP has all the site files. Opening up the FTP like that can open up the site to hackers, which is why I propose a PM deal, when it's integrated, one has to PM the site administrator for the password or something like that.

Ah, I was suspecting something like that.  You can't have different levels of user access?  ie, only admin passwords are accepted to modify site files' location, the rest can only modify campaign / mission / etc upload directories?

Don't think so.

Re: Posting Campaigns At Hades-Combine
Don't think so.

Depends on your webserver.  You SHOULD be able to set up an anonymous FTP service where users can upload files only to a specific directory.  Admins could then move them to the appropriate location.  Most professional webservers have this functionality.  If you guys are managing your own FTP server, you can set this up yourselves quite easily by group access accounts.

Re: Posting Campaigns At Hades-Combine
I really should pay more attention to this. I'm not sure about anonymous access, although it's probably possible, but restrictions to directories are certainly possible and there's already something that can move the files to the right place and add them to the database. That's been ready for a while now.
It would be interesting to tie it into site user accounts though but I don't think we have the access to do that.
