Album Pasword Protection
« on: June 06, 2010, 07:32:26 pm »

1.5.4 Stable version
Help me pls to understand the pasword protection logic.
For me, main idea of this is- unregistred users to get acces to album
When you have set "Albums can be private" to YES,  and set an album password, the permission dropdown field "Album can be viewed by" is switched automatically to "me only".
So, nobody cannot acces this album, becouse nobody see it.

When you have set "Albums can be private" to NO, and choose pasword protection- anebody can enter this album without pasword.

Help me pls to make this album visible to everybody, but access only with pwd.

PS i found similar theme here, but no solution there.

As far as I know you have to send the Link to the PW-protected album to the user(s) along with the password.
If you want the album to be seen by others you can create a usergroup and modify the album-permissions to be viewed only by this usergroup.

Enable Show private album icon to unlogged user.

Bug imo. Either we have to disable the password protection form if that setting is disabled, or we have to apply the password prompt.
