I guess I'm not the first person to ask you this question. It's about how to set default permission for the new groups, but since English is not my native language and I'm not sure I will be clear enough in my explanation let me introduce my problem first:
I have a customer. He's a wedding photographer, and he wants to use gallery3 as a tool for letting his customers to see the wedding photos from his website anytime; for obvious reasons, only a selection of people choosen by the groom and the bride will be able to see the photo album of their weddings, and for no reason they should be allowed to see the wedding photos of an another couple.
* one photo album (ex: album1)
then he will grant permission of a single album to a single group, so only that group will be able to access a specific album (ex: group1 will be able to access album1, but not album2, album3 or album4).
So far, I managed to make Gallery3 working this way, but of course now I have a problem: when I create a new group, that new group by default can have access to all the photo albums. For example if I already have "album1" and "user1/group1", when I create "album2" and "user2/group2", every user that is member of "group2" by default can access "album2" as well as "album1" so every time I'm forced to manually deny the access; the problem is that the photographer plans to host up to 100-200 private albums, and I can manually deny access to 199 groups on each of those 199 albums.
I need a solution to tell Gallery3 something like this: "Ok, when I create a new group I want you to deny access by default to every photo album. Later I will manually enable this particular group to access some albums."
Is that possible ?
Thank you and best regards
