Photo Folders, Just another WordPress site

Documentation: privacy

Published on 28 June 2014 -

Here's the information related to Photo-Folders, privacy and access control.

Cookies

Photo-Folders record as cookies the emails you are using to download pictures or to send picture selections:

  • useremail: for downloading a picture of a set of picturesas ZIP files.
  • destemail: destination email for sending a selection of picture pointers.
  • importsite: albums import site (only used by the site admin).

Emails used to download pictures are stored on the site hosting Photo-Folders. No other personal personal data is stored on the server other than the reference of downloaded pictures.

Otherwise, Photo-Folders usage is kept anonymous. No personal navigation data is stored on the user client or on the Wordpress server hosting Photo-Folders.

Other cookies are used by Photo-folders to store multi-criteria search settings and the saving of saved multi-criteria searches.

  • Cookies starting with isearch (label, description, ...) record the setting of the current multicriteria search..
  • Cookie savedsearches records the list of saved multi-criteria searches.

Since June 2015, a button can be used to reset all the plugin's cookies, available from the diagnostic tab from the statistics menu. Once the dialog is launched showing the existing cookies in place, one button can be used to remove it in a snap.

Pictures opt-out

The pictures published on Photo-Folders may contain information on people: their name and sometimes descriptions. The people referenced in Photo-Folders can ask to the administrator the deletion (opt-out) of specific pictures from albums.

This can be asked for one single picture or for several pictures from a selection and with clicking on the pictures deletion icon.

Plugin access control

With Photo-Folders, publishers can control access rights to the pictures: with a single password for all users, or with relying on Wordpress user accounts.

User based access is particularly interesting when the Wordpress site is dedicated to using Photo-Folders and sharing pictures with a close group of friends or relatives.

Configuration starts with using the first admin settings tab to activate user based access control.

You then create user accounts in regular Wordpress admin.

You can send an email to new users or do it yourself with keeping track of created user identifiers and passwords.

The access control is applied only to the plugin and not to the rest of the blog.

If you send a link to the plugin pictures to an user, he/she will need an user account to access it. The pictures downloads ZIP files will however be accessible to all users. Hopefully, their name is unique and one cannot get the name of these ZIP files directly.

Once logged, the user identifier shows up at the top right of the plugin. If the user is also Wordpress admin, a red icon at the right of the user identifier is there to enable pictures uploads. It also reminds that the user is an admin.

With clicking on the identifier, users can show up a dialog box used to change password and log out. The dialog also tells the user if he/she is a Wordpress site admin.

The plugin admin features are available for only one day. The admin must update the plugin page (F5 on most PC web browsers) to recover admin rights and be able to change the pictures database (upload, deletes, name changes, ...) if he's using the plugin day after day without relaunching his browser.

Photo-Folders offers also various rights to users depending on their role as registered Wordpress users.

Three Wordpress roles provides specific rights on top of the administrator role who has all rights:

  • The contributor role brings the capacity to add a widget SHORTCODE directly in the blog posts, to upload pictures, add or modify TOP items.
  • The author role adds to the previous one the capacity to rename objects, modify picture tags, object descriptions, edit posts from the plugin and update albums thumbnails.
  • The editor role adds to the former one the capacity to update the database, move pictures and albums around and delete objects.
