Hi, would there be anyway to have a user profile photo gallery for each user within mt motion? Is this possible with custom fields or other? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you could use custom fields to allow a user to create a gallery. You could just create a bunch of image custom fields, but that would mean a user's gallery is limited to however many fields you create.
I think a better avenue to go would be with the Asset Gallery plugin because it would allow for a limitless number of photos in the gallery. However, it would only work for users with access to the backend, or would have to be reworked quite a bit.
Hi Dan, Thanks for your response that helps. I don't really want to allow users into the back end so I'll try to play around with custom fields some more. Thanks again.
Hey Dylan, Did you ever get anywhere with this? Was just thinking the same thing.
It would be great if a plugin could be developed for MT that supports a community more. Things like private messages and upload space for users. Would be more in line with competing against Joomla or Droople for a CMS solution.
If you need to share template code, replace all the "<" signs with "<" or use this utility.
