guest's not able to see albums

by Warspade » Fri Mar 11, 2011 9:54 pm

i have alot of mods done to my board, such as board3 portal, gallery application and few other small ones.

the problem that has arised is, when guests visit my website, they first see the home page which is the portal, with news etc etc, they can view and read the news just like a registered member can, but now that i have gallery installed, they cannot see any image's that we link from teh gallery and cant even see the gallery.

steps i took, i gave guests permissions to see every single gallery album, and still cant see it, is there a missing acp module possibly ? i saw a guest permission one from reading posts, but i dont have that.

under the gallery section in ACP there is only.

Configure Gallery
Manage albums
Copy Permissions
Import images
Clean up gallery

those are only options i have there, any input on this matter would be helpfull

**note it shows the you are not authroized to view this image in place of the actual image

Well could you please have a look whether the Anonymous User is member of the Guests group?

Sorry for reviving a old post, but I have the same problem and have not been able to fix it.

My board is "https://www.astronet.dk/forum".
1) Checked that Anonymous is a member of the Guests group.
2) ACP->Extensions->Selected Albums and selected all albums.
3) Submit.
4) Select "Guests" in "Add Groups" and press [Add permissions].
5) [Images] - "Can View images" => yes
[Comments] - "Can read comments" => yes
[Misc] - "Can see album" => yes
6) Copy permissions from 5) to all other albums.
