I created a collection that requires a password to access. Inside the collection are galleries, and I created these galleries using the "Inherit from" permission, meaning they should inherit their permissions from the Collection.
Here is the question. If a user enters the password to get into the collection, will they they have to use the same password to enter each gallery within the collection? Or does the password "trickle down" and they won't have to enter it again?
If it does not "trickle down," then here is my next question. If I password protect the collection, but do not have the galleries inherit their permissions from the Collection - rather I set their permissions to "everyone" - does that mean that no one call see them without entering the collection, but once in the collection they will be able to enter any gallery without having to re-enter the password?
I do not want my users to have to enter the password more than once to view the galleries in the collection, but I also don't want to open up a big security hole by marking galleries to "everyone" when I don't want everyone to see them.
And, yes, I did experiment a bit with this. I get different results depending on mac/pc/android using edge/firefox/chrome/vivaldi. So I am trying to find out what is "supposed" to happen, even if it is not consistent across all platforms and browsers.
Any help would be appreciated.
