Hello,
When searching for a gallery plugin to use I think i read that I would be able to password protect each gallery, is this correct? if so then how do I do it?
Many thanks for your help

Hi Jan,
Thanks for the reply, also thanks for PhocaGallery.
I don`t know how to do it through the menu manager yet though I`m still new at Joomla, I will find out.

John.

if you create a menu link, you can choose that this menu link only registered user can see (e.g.)... in Menu Manager...

Hi Jan,Oh yes

Hi Jan,
Oh yes I know that one, I need to protect areas to specific users though.
(I`m a wedding photographer and want to allow only the married couple to view their own photos)
Thanks
John

Hi, try the version

Post by Jan » 10 Apr 2008, 16:23

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.

Post by Jan » 14 Apr 2008, 22:06

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...
