Just a quick question and I may already know my answer, but can galleries be password protected?
Thanks you PP!

Yes they probably could. But the thing is that we don't have galleries. That makes it difficult.
We can also not password protect a post. Although we can write an addon for that.

how about password protecting a category?
is that possible via a plugin or is that a 'core' hack?

i'm planning on such a thing : users can only see allowed categories.
- admin side
- create a "users" table,
- create a users/categories association table
- create a "users" pages : manage users and allowed categories
- modify categories page : manage allowed users
- front side
- add login : if login fails, only public categories are allowed
- navigation thru allowed categories only (browse, next/previous, tag by tag navigation ...)
So, I don't know if it's possible only by addon. Core pages modification is needed, IMO.
First, I plan to make modifications, and only AFTER try to export theses in an add-on.
btw, development will be long, because there's a life beside PP :)

Thanks that would be great! I found an addon written by austriaka+
you can see the original post here (http://www.pixelpost.org/forum/showthread.php?t=5642&highlight=private+addon)
It was written for 1.5 but may work with 1.7 given a few chnaged required to images_edit.php (but these are already documented in the readme) I am going to have a play, so will let you know how I get on with this

Admin part is done. It's no yet an addon ...
I PMed to Austrakia+ and she mailed me her add-on. It's a good one (thanks, Austrakia+. My webmail is not very good and I don't remember if I did thank you So I do : thanks a lot !).
Austrakia+'s addon is a private access to a sub-folder of Images, protected by an htaccess generator. Good. But not enough for what I want : allow access user by user, category by category.
