How would I make a password protected Gallery and Catalogue?

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

or a CEDI page?

Not with a group, but a single password to a page…

There's no inbuilt way to do this, but if it's appropriate we'd suggest using permissions instead. You'd create a new usergroup, assign view permissions only to that usergroup, and put any people that you want to have access in that usergroup with a secondary membership.

I have thought of that but I looked at how much work it would take and its way to much.
First after I create a new group I have to make sure that group has permissions to all catagories and galliers the last time I did this it took well over a half hour going though the tree editor.

Not to mention the problem of my points store could not work any longer.

I have a points store where members can buy groups of different colors so they can be what ever color they like. Which when I made these groups its when I went though all the categories and galleries and allowed each one to view every thing.

I would have to make lots of groups and not add those groups to the store but all those who have the password to the password protected forums. Give them a new group going by what group they are in now. Which I know is going to take me a few hours.

The whole group Idea will take several hours if not a day.

ocPortal's group system uses a 'best of' technique. You don't need to give any permissions to the new usergroup, except the extra ones. As long as their existing primary group (or any other secondary group) has the other permissions, it'll work fine.

If you did want to define full permissions for your new group (even though there's no need to), there's actually a tool in the Admin Zone that'll allow you to copy the permissions from one group to another.

well IPB does have secondary groups but it will still be a complex process.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
