Drupal 7.41 Photo Gallery

4 years 9 months ago #119576 by jcross
Drupal 7.41 Photo Gallery was created by jcross
I'm trying to create a photo gallery. When I add content to Photo Gallery and add photos to it I can see the thumbnail for only a minute before it disappears. As a side note I store them in a PRIVATE directory.

Some postings out there say to change the rights to the directory - some say change the .htaccess file. What are the security risks??? I've done neither at this point as this "bug/issue" is again documented all over the Drupal forums but there doesn't seem to be a common fix to the problem.

I've watched several Youtube videos on how to create a photo gallery and these issues don't crop up. What is the right way to create and VIEW a Photo Gallery?

Hi jcross,

As a side note I store them in a PRIVATE directory.

If the gallery would be available for public access, worth changing this permission.

I've watched several Youtube videos on how to create a photo gallery and these issues don't crop up. What is the right way to create and VIEW a Photo Gallery?

Check this tutorial: www.ostraining.com/blog/drupal/node-gallery-drupal-7/
See if is of any help

Kind regards,
Valentín
