Hi Jan,
Oh yes I know that one, I need to protect areas to specific users though.

Hi, try the version 1.6.7:

* Added Public/Register/Special Access behaviour for categories. You can define that e.g. only registered users can see the category.
* Category can be displayed only for specifed user(s). You can define, that only User X or User Y can see the category.
* You can hide or display the back button in category view (e.g. if you use breadcrumbs).
* TinyMCE editor added into a description of an image. The text can be formatted.

Hi, there are still the back button and folder button to protected categories in tree (they are shown but not accessible) ... I will try to:

- hide them or
- add e.g. a picture 'key' to the image ... but it will be not easy, so it takes time...
