Password Protected Album Sets

Password protection on an album set is working a little differently from CE4.

On CE4 I had to authenticate as soon as I clicked on the Album Set.

On Backlight I can click on the password protected Album Set and I am immediately taken into it, able to see all of its albums (and their cover thumbnails). It is only when I click on a (not-explicitly-protected) album within the set that I have to authenticate.

I think CS4 had the correct behaviour. If an Album Set is protected an unauthenticated user shouldn't be able to see what galleries are within along with their cover images.

Thanks
Chris

Re: Password Protected Album Sets

Hi Chris, this should be because you're viewing the album set in the same browser that you are already logged in as Backlight admin.  Does that sound right?  If you're logged in as admin then you won't need to login to protected albums and can also see albums hidden from album sets.

Re: Password Protected Album Sets

Ben, I notice this happens even when I'm logged out. I've password protected the "Other" album set on this page:

Re: Password Protected Album Sets

Hi Ben

No, the problem is definitely there for unauthenticated users. You can see the effect quite clearly on Rod's site.

The check for the protected Album Set is being done whenever an album underneath it is accessed (even if it is several layers of album sets down). But you can work your way down through arbitrary levels of Album Sets themselves without the authentication kicking in as it should.

Thanks
Chris

Re: Password Protected Album Sets

We've looked into this today and found the issue. Should be resolved in our first update.
