I'm migrating to Sytist from another platform. I uploaded 20 main galleries, each with sub-galleries (1 for each subject). A Password List was processed and everything is working well with that.

The structure is: Site Content/2019 Events/Event Gallery #1 (thru) Event Gallery #20.
Each event gallery's sub-gallery is passworded via csv file.

Here is where the problem comes in: The client will click their Event-#, let's say EVENT-#10 and be greeted with the Find My Photos search bar.

The issue is that if a sub-gallery in EVENT-#10 has a password of "1234", and a sub-gallery in EVENT-#16 has a sub-gallery with the same password of "1234" as well, Find My Photos closes out of EVENT #10 opens the wrong sub-gallery in EVENT#16.

Since I am migrating from another platform, all of the clients already have their passwords. I would hate to notify everyone they will each need a new password!
On the other platform the "Enter Password Search" was limited to the Event Gallery in which they clicked into.
Does Sytist allow such a limitation, or is there something I'm missing? Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way?

EDIT TO ADD: I think I might have found the hiccup? Sub Folders are named by the Password Name. So Folder 1234 has a password of 1234. This happens in every event. So I'm going to try and rename the Sub Folders so that they are all unique and Re-Upload the passwords.csv file with the respective changes to reflect the new Sub Folder Names. Hopefully that will work.

EDIT TO ADD: Nope, changing folder names did NOT solve the problem.

Thank you in advance!

If you are using the main Find my photos search on the home page or in the main menu, then it is going to search all sub galleries in all galleries.

You would need to remove those and have the customers select their gallery and enter in the password there.

You can also have the list of galleries show on your home page by going to Site Content -> Manage Home Page and use the Featured Content option. You can also remove the find my photos form from the home page (if it is enabled) when editing the home page too.

Thank you for your response. So I removed the Find my photos option but I still have the dilemma that if a customer selects their gallery and enters in the password there it still pulls them out of that gallery and opens the wrong images in another gallery.

I've tried several things, such as using password in filename, but all to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'll email you a file that when they enter in a sub gallery password file in a gallery, it will only search sub galleries in that gallery.

Also, to get the password form to show, you will need to click the "do not display sub galleries" option while in the photos tab of the gallery above the list of sub galleries.
