Disable Anonymous Access
« on: December 28, 2004, 06:34:44 pm »

I want to disable any Anonymous access to my entire gallery. I have looked through though the docs and I found a section on modifying the php (I think) to do this, is this the "proper" way to go about it?

I was a little suprised that I couldn't either disable the Anonymous group or maybe have an option in COnfig to say no Anonymous access is allowed, at all.

So, do I need to modify the pages to do this or is there an easier way?

Thanks in advance for any help, I have just switched to Coppermine after having a lot of headaches with another album mechanism, everyhing looks much smoother and more reliable so far, I just find the idea of leaving the album open to everyone by default a little odd.

Chris.

The redirection somehow adds a period . in between the url which messes the images and makes them broken. how do I remove that dot?
e.g.

@irishblue: What does your post have to do with preventing anonymous users from viewing your gallery?

The mod refered to uses a redirect to the login.php which then re-redirected to the board's login page. Evidently his bridge is not setup correctly.

because the info to disable anonymous access here:
http://coppermine.sourceforge.net/faq.php#registeredUsersOnly
includes instructions to add a redirect to the login page.

is that a file I can check if the bridge is set up correctly? perhaps some paths i should look out for?
