Password protected gallery and Soft-Proofing

04 Dec 2014, 01:18

Hi Karl, Not sure if this has been brought up previously.

I know the X2 can be password protected... can it be done on the X3 as well? And if it is yes, in what level of priority it has for the feature list?


Also, is it possible to add the feature soft-proofing gallery?... the ability to see what the viewers favourite is or I guess it will require a database so you can retrieve the information.

At the moment, I am using PIXIESET as my soft-proofing gallery: http://larryanda.pixieset.com/ (example)

This would have to be relatively high priority after squashing bugs. It might have to wait until January, but if we find time in december we will take a look.

I am not familiar with the term "soft-proofing", although it sounds like someone views a gallery and marks them as "proofed" or something. I checked the link you gave, but it basically just links to password-protected galleries ...

May i also add that since you will be dealing with password protection and security to add the feature to prevent Right Click on images? :D

Thanks !!!

Yes.. we have a feature request for that on another thread :)

Yes, Karl... they are designed for clients as proofing gallery when ordering prints or what to include on their print album and the likes. Basically what I normally do is I upload some of my best shots on an event. Provide them the link with the gallery password and they view all the images and marks all their favourite images. But as I said it might require some database...

Passworded-pages and basic image-protection (right-click etc), is relatively high priority ... Maybe december-goods, but don't quote me on that.

A bit more complicated, and is not something we can look into until after new year. It could use a database-module, although it could also be solved non-DB by simply sending an email to admin with selected images. Sounds to me we are slightly in the realms of e-commerce here though, if they also are to make selections on a per-item basis.

Not yet. I will look into it after v0.9 to be launched shortly ...

I am currently working on password protected pages for X3, and we have made it so that passwords are "recursive" (meaning a password added to page /galleries/ will also apply when someone tries to access /galleries/gallery/).

I was curious though, can anyone think of any scenario where one would NOT want a login to be recursive to sub-pages? If not, this will feature will just be on by default with no option.

By now I cannot imagine such a scenario but I'd like to have the choice to apply the pass only to one level or also to all the child levels...

Say if I have multiple galleries (sub-folder) inside the "Galleries" page... I would like to assign individual password for each. SO I think Non-recursive is what I would like to have when I initially request for this feature.

OR Maybe I don't understand your question Karl. :P

Yes, but if you have individual passwords for each gallery inside the "Galleries" page, do you actually need/want a password for the main "Galleries" page at all?

My answer is NO.

So say I have menus: MAIN | GALLERIES | ABOUT US |CONTACT US

Under GALLERIES I have 10 subfolders or sub-galleries that's all I want to have an individual password.

Sub-Galleries 01 - password: 1234
Sub-Galleries 02 - password: 5678
Sub-Galleries 03 - password: XXXX

Something like that...

Well, I would love to see a password protection feature at top level as it was possible in X2.

Yep, so that means passwords can be recursive by default, and no need to have a setting for it. You just apply individual passwords to those sub-galleries, and that's that! If you for some reason added a sub-sub-gallery into one of those galleries, it would still be protected by the login of the parent folder.

Top level protection ... Do you mean setting a password for global gallery access no matter what page you start from? ... or do you mean setting passwords that inherit upon subfolders? In X3, passwords are recursive by nature, and you can set a global password by applying the wildcard url: *.

I am maybe the only one but I would like to have global password for X3.
My current X2 gallery is protected by a .htaccess with password, it works and should olso works for X3 but it is not really a login page.

Can you explain a bit what is this wildcart '*.' and is this something that would protect all the X3 or only gallery?
