Good morning (or afternoon).

I know that to the question "Is it possible to limit the pictures a participant can upload for a given period of time?", some flok already responded :
"there a two options in Configuration Manager->User Access Rights->User Upload: "Timespan in days" and "Max number of images""

My question is about photo contest over time :

If I do create a category like "contest-june-2015", open for 30 days (the June month) :
--> What happens next ?
Is this possible to "close" the voting system after the 30 days for this specific category, but still always having the pictures published ?

My goal is to having each month a different photo contest, allowing registred users to only upload picture for 1 contest, and not allowing them to "vote" for the oldest contests.

Is this possible with JoomGallery ?

:)

Hi,

upload and vote are different things.
Unfortunately it is not possible to vote in a category and the other not.
It is only possible to control if it is allowed to vote or not via user groups.

Hello,
Thanks for your anwser.

Can I create categories like these :
june-2015 > valid only during the month of June, 2015
july-2015 > valid only during the month of July, 2015
august-2015 > valid only during the month of August, 2015

Then, imagine we are in August:
-> can I close "vote" and "upload" for the categories "june-2015" and "july-2015" ?
-> but can I still display any photos from the categories "june-2015" and "july-2015" in public ?

Thanks again :)

You can change the permissions (in August) so no one can upload new images in this category.
Closing "vote" for one category is not possible, only for all categories.

Hello,
If I change the permissions so no one can upload new images in this category (ex: August):
- can anybody still watching the images in August
- does the links of each "category August"'s pictures are still available ?
In case some users shared their pictures to social networks, I would like the url of these shared pictures to be always the same.

Greeting :)

yes.
Note: visibility is determined by the access level. That has nothing to do with the user rights, e.g. Category rules.

Hello :)
Just a question:
Do you think you may add this feature (closing "vote" for one or more categories) ?

Because, If I want to make photos contests on a limited time, then I don't want users able to vote for old photos contests ...

Thanks for any feedback :)

Also, can you tell me how to change the access level ?
Is this possible for a certain category, or only for users ?

Sorry, i am not a developer. I can not realize this.
The code is publicly on github. If you absolutely need the feature, you can hire a programmer to do this.

Also, can you tell me how to change the access level ?

you can assign the access level for each category itself. See screenshot.
