View unpublished (not posted) attachments while logged out? (2 posts)

    So I'm building an image gallery here: http://atlas.damonzucconi.com/
    using this gallery widget: http://blog.splash.de/2008/05/16/gallery-widget/

    (i want to be able to upload images and them just be viewable without posting anything and there doesn't seem to be a way to simply view all the attachments on one page. this widget was the only thing that i could find to handle it.)

    everything was going along swimmingly until I logged out and realized that you can't view any of the attachments once you are logged out.

    i noticed that if the attachment is inserted into a post that it then can be viewed in this way.

    - one that is attached to a post first: http://atlas.damonzucconi.com/?attachment_id=549
    - one that isn't attached to a post: http://atlas.damonzucconi.com/?attachment_id=519

    so i am assuming that there is just some permission or something that is being changed in the database? anyway to turn that off so that any unpublished attachment is viewable?

    thanks!

    is this just the 'post status' column in the database being switched to 'publish'? is there anyway to not have to manually publish every attachment?
