Gallery field showing all media

  • Hi,

    I love the Gallery field plugin, its really nice. I’m building a
    wedding vendors directory (photographers, wedding planners, designers) and I would like users to be able to have their own profile and upload a gallery.

    I have everything working, except for the problem that when I use the Media Library, the user has access to all gallery images that have been previously uploaded.

    Is there a way individual users can create a gallery without looking at someone’s else media?


  • You can use this code in your functions.php file

    // Restrict media library to show only own user files
    function ml_restrict_media_library( $wp_query_obj ) {
    	global $current_user, $pagenow;
    	if( !is_a( $current_user, 'WP_User') )
    	if( 'admin-ajax.php' != $pagenow || $_REQUEST['action'] != 'query-attachments' )
    	if( !current_user_can('delete_pages') )
    		$wp_query_obj->set('author', $current_user->ID );
