Making Photos Private
In all versions of Family Connections prior to 3.0, the photos in the Photo Gallery are viewable to users outside of your website, without being logged in. A non-authorized user would have to guess the location of these photos, but they still could see them, if they guessed correctly.
To fix this, FCMS 3.0 added a way to hide the photos from outside users.
The example below assumes that your current website directory is something like: /some_username/www/index.php /some_username/www/inc/config_inc.php /some_username/www/uploads/ /some_username/www/uploads/avatar/ /some_username/www/uploads/documents/ /some_username/www/uploads/photos/ /some_username/www/uploads/upimages/
Edit the inc/config_inc.php file on your server. Add the following line just below the MySQL database information, but above the ?>:
Move the uploads directoy to the path you specified in step 1.
The end result should look something like this: /some_username/uploads/ /some_username/uploads/avatar/ /some_username/uploads/documents/ /some_username/uploads/photos/ /some_username/uploads/upimages/ /some_username/www/index.php /some_username/www/inc/config_inc.php
