Title: Sharing a SINGLE Album - is it possible?
Post by: GregM on September 02, 2004, 08:03:33 pm
Hello,

I am brand new to Coppermine, and am loving it so far.  THIS is what I have been looking for! 
I have a simple (I hope) question.  Is it possible to share out a single album?  For example, I have my gallery with three albums, but I only want to share one out from a certain webpage.  Can I make it so that people can only see the one album and not the other two, without having them log in?

Also, is there a way to link an album from a webpage.  For example, something like YourPage.com/Album1/ OR YourPage.com/Album1.htms  and, when you go there, have a specific album come up?

Many thanks in advance!!!

Greg

You can make any album invisible to users at any level.  What you ask is easy, just logon, admin mode/config/users can have private albums, set to YES.  Also, select 'show private album icon' to NO.

Now, open each albums properties box, and you will see the 'album can be viewed by' selection.  Just select who you want to see the album (by group).

To see the url for the album, just open it, and copy the address, which will be something like;
Quote
http://www.yoursite.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=65

Using that will link directly to the album page.
