You can select any current user groups from those listed, or create a new user group as shown above.

A user group is usually the name of the client, and you would then send the username and password to all the members of that group or family.

Once a gallery has been set as private, it will not be visible on the website unless the visitor has logged is using the correct username and password issued to them.

alertPrivate galleries should be added to a portfolio that has been added to a page with the page visibility set to 'Registered'. This will auto-display the login form when a visitor clicks on that page. If they then login with a valid username and password they will then see their private gallery (or galleries).

A private galleries page will have been setup on your website at the start of your account with Click IT Internet. Just add any private galleries that you create to the private galleries portfolio so that your clients will have easy and quick access to view their proofs.

page settings

To change the 'visibility' of any page click on the page settings icon (or the Change Settings link in the page editor) and you will see the options above. The Private Galleries page shown here is set to Registered, so it will only display a login form. If a visitor then enters a valid username and password then the page will instantly display their private galleries.

Each time you create a new user group in the Gallery Manager it will be auto-added to the Allowed Viewers list shown above.

NOTE... as the editor, you can see ALL private galleries when you are logged in.
