You can manage your events here. Aside of creating a new event, you can set an event offline/online, upload files, open the file list and open the edit view. In addition, there are several more buttons in the toolbar:
- Sync Database
- Clear Cache
For details check the overview section.
The view lets you edit the details of an event. An event is always based on some kind of file structure. Because of this you’ll have to deal with the term Folder.
Save as Copy button to create a copy of the current event.
Make sure you specify a different image source. It is not allowed to use a source twice.
Images are not involved in the copy process.
Specify which image source you want to use for this Event.
Local Images / Amazon S3
Specify the folder name. Don’t use special characters or slashes. A good example id '2022-05-20_birthday'. You don’t need to care about the folder structure, so no parent directories are needed here. Again: no slashes are allowed. Create the Event, then you can upload images.
Flickr Photo Set ID
If you want to show a Flickr Photoset you can enter the ID of this set here. Please note that you have to make sure your images are public and the original file download is allowed. Otherwise, they’ll not appear in Event Gallery.
Use the album selector button to select the album you want to use. It will fill the album field with a long string which is the reference to the album.
Defines a set of user groups. If a user wants to see an event he needs to be part of one of the defined user groups. Otherwise, he’ll get a login page or an access-denied-screen.
Set a password for each folder if you want to protect it somehow. If a user tries to access such a folder he needs to enter a password. If you want to send out links to a password-protected folder you can add this password directly to the link and nobody needs to be bothered by a password page.
Provide a hint for the user to guess or get the password. Use this to let your visitors guess the password without having to know it.
