still curious about this topic? Haven't moved anywhere since 1 initial response. Problem is that i can't seem to figure out why an anonymous user can see all photos (note: i do not want to enable option "require users to be registered to view photos" ... speaking of which even with this option enabled an anonymous user is still able to see all the thumbnails in a category that he is NOT even supposed to see).
Let me give you some details:
usergroup name? | Anonymous | Admin | moderator | users
admin access? | no | yes | no | no
mod access? | no | yes | no | no
allow uploads? | no | yes | yes | yes
allow comments? | no | yes | yes | yes
require moderation? | no | no | no | no
allow edit own photos? | no | yes | yes | yes
allow edit own posts? | no | yes | yes | yes
allow albums? | no | yes | yes | yes
my sub-category titled "Brasil" has these usergroup "access permissions" configured:
1. These checked usergroups can view images in this category. (only "Admin" is checked)
2. These checked usergroups can upload to this category, unless a usergroup's overall upload access is disabled. (only "Admin" is checked)
3. These checked usergroups can post to this category, unless a usergroup's overall posting access is disabled. (only "Admin" is checked)
and yet when an anonymous user opens the gallery they are able to see the thumbnails and photos for everything in that category?
i tried using member "ablums", thinking that then an anonymous user shouldn't be able to view a member's photos ... the only way that i could prevent an anonymous user from viewing was to add passwords to categories.
Am i doing something wrong?
