Set the uploader as the owner
We have proceeded with the standard configuration of the private area but there’s a problem.
When a user upload a file, we would like that the owner of the file is automatically set as the uploader (and maybe, if possible, the administrator).
How can we do that?
Moreover, when the user upload his file and choose the owner, we noted that he can choose any user registered on the platform, this could be problematic in privacy terms. Can we somehow exclude the other registered users from the owner drop down menu choice?
Thanks in advance
This is easily doable within the free version of the plugin. Please, check this post for reference and scroll down to the section titled New ability to hide the owner selection part.
If you set the administrator as the default owner, and a user uploads a file, he will remain author of the post, and the post will be assigned to the administrator.
You might also want to check this FAQ if you want your users to see both authored and assigned files in the My Files page (instead of separates pages).
