    Original second post from https://wordpress.org/support/topic/public-uploader-5/ put in wrong place:

    Aggghhhhh Please help!
    I’ve posted in two other places so I apologise if you’re reading this again.
    I use NextGEN gallery with public uploader so people can upload images. Last year it was password protected so only people with the password could upload images. I cannot for the life of me work out how to do it again for this year. I’ve emailed NextGEN and the public uploader developers and no joy.
    Thanks

    Just for clarification sake, was it using anything for the public uploader’s settings for your password protected aspect? or did you limit the access some other way via theme files, for example?

    The plugin hasn’t had any significant updates for some time, so something else must have changed in the install to cause some issue with the topic. Also, as noted elsewhere, it is still in a state coded for legacy NextGEN Gallery, so we can’t ensure continued functionality with the newest versions of that.

    Thanks Michael
    I am not very technical….. but I am desperate for help! We go live next week and need a volunteer to be able to upload to the gallery but only her…… not everyone else viewing the website.

    I’m not entirely sure what you mean by limiting via theme files. When I set up the link that goes at the bottom of the page it just says this –
    Click here to upload photos

    I just don’t know how to get this on the front page to then be password protected.

    The page/link at http://www.biglearnerrelay.co.uk/photouploader/ is likely just a password-protected page. However, it sounds like you need the form as part of the frontpage, but still limited, which is going to be a potentially trickier thing to accomplish. As is, if I remember the plugin correctly, you’d need to change the settings to make it be logged in only. In those cases, it would not show the form, and instead show a message about needing to be logged in. If you’re aiming for zero output whatsoever, then you’ll need to find a way to check the current user status before even parsing the shortcode or displaying the widget.
