I'm setting up a gallery for a photographer, where users will be able to log on and access the photos from their event. So for example I have set up groups called event1, event2 and event3, and also created albums called event1, event2 and event3. Each album is given viewing permissions for the corresponding group. So a user in the event1 group logs in and sees the photo album from event1, etc. This works fine.
But then, if I were to create a new group called event4, then create an album called event4, when I go into permissions, the event4 group permissions has a padlock on it. If I click it, every other album loses its permissions and gets event4 permissions.
However, If I instead go to the root folder and look at permissions, all groups have viewing permissions except event4 (the reason it has a padlock on it), so if I click the tick for event4, every album has viewing permissions for their own group, and that of event4.
This means if I create a create a new private album, and a new group to go with it, I then have to go through every previous group and untick permissions for the new group.
Is there a way to create a new group and not have it automatically given access to every existing folder? this would make more sense
