Please explain new update for Profiles module
It seems to be saying that members can add more items than their quota permits, ...but that they just won't SEE the extra items. Why would they be able to add more than their quota permits in the first place? Can you help me understand what this is about please?
No - that's not what this means
Imagine the following scenario:
- you have a user that uploads 20 songs BEFORE you place any quota limits in place
- you then set their quota limit to "10"
in this instance only the first 10 songs will now show to visitors to the profile (based on the order as set in display order). The change made it so if a visitor attempted to view a song that was hidden because of the profile limit (say song #11) they previously would get an error about the quota limits being enforced - it was the message meant to be displayed to the site owner. Now instead it just shows a "not found" page to visitors.
The second fix for hard versus soft limit was that if you had set the profile quota limit to a HARD limit (i.e. not allowed to exceed at all) profile owners would not "see" the songs above the limit to delete them.
Let me know if that helps.
