private albums with public thumbnails?
« on: January 02, 2006, 04:37:43 am »

is there a way in cpg to have an album with all its thumnails viewable without logging in but that requires registration/login for viewing the intermediate and full size images?  we use cpg for an events gallery and would like to do that as a way to encourage new registrations.

thanks in advance.

thanks i'll try that as soon as i'm done upgrading to the latest version.  i assume this change would then apply to all albums (i.e. i can't have fully private ones)?  ideally i would want public, semi private, and fully private albums.

happy new year.

okay, so i've upgraded to 1.4.3 and tried the change.  i understand now that what it does is make *all* "public" albums semi private (i.e require registration to view full size images of) and leave behavior of private albums as is.  that's cool and works for my purposes, though it would be nice if at some point if instead of this global change there's an an option at the album level of making it semi private.

unless you tell me otherwise, i'll post that as a feature request.

thanks again.

I wrote a plugin that limits access to the full-size images to groups you select (which could be the "Registered" group).  It also includes an admin-customizable message where you could tell people to register to view the full-size images.  I'm looking at adding per-album controls and at restricting access to the intermediate images.  So maybe it's not useful to you now.  In that case, FYI for the future: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=25010.0.
