How to prevent public access to galleries?
when using basicaly out-of-box plugin configuration, I believed that if I put an album to my password protected post, this album (and it’s galleries) will be protected somehow. Wrong.
It is enough to open some other public post containing an album, copy URL of an gallery thumbnail, paste it to browser address bar, modify gallery ID parameter in URL and you can access any existing gallery.
(According to feature request, password protection was not author’s focus in mid 2010. Did anything change?)
Is there a way how to configure Nexgen Gallery to prevent a “public” access to all galleries?
I see there is option “Activate permalinks” but I cannot find any usable setup guide.
Is it somehow possible to change URLs from using numeric gallery IDs like
to URLs with a custom gallery IDs instead like
It would be much harder to guess gallery name compared to gallery numeric ID edit in URL. In fact, you could read a custom gallery name only inside a password protected post.
Any hint/advice appreciated. Thanks a lot.
