Selecting ‘Display Gallery on page load, user needs to click on the “home” button to show sidebar and content’ and giving the post a password results in a broken portfolio item; In the portfolio the item appears as usual with a padlock. When entering that portfolio item the page is blank.
Caveat: If you’ve previously entered the password for that item (before choosing the ‘Display Gallery on page load, user needs to click on the “home” button to show sidebar and content’ setting) then the portfolio will work as expected.
Removing the password the portfolio item works as expected. Setting Instant Background Gallery back to ‘Display Sidebar and content on page load, user needs to hide it manually’ the portfolio item works as expected.
The code to hide the sidebar+content should really take place AFTER the password has been entered, i.e. when displaying the gallery. Not before.December 11, 2012 at 3:34 pm #100070
I believe the issue is that the sidebar and content are associated with the page content. So when you view a page with a password, the data is not even accessible to the user so it can not be manipulated yet.
By setting the content to be hidden on load there is definitely a conflict between how the item is requested and how a user would enter a password but I’m not sure if its a solvable issue. The nature of the protection means no content (even the presence of a gallery) can be accessed until the password has been entered and the server receives it.
I’ll tag Kriesi on the post so that he can take a look at it and see if a fix/word-around or something can be done for that specific instance.
