Share album via (not guessable) link

Hello,

I am currently about to switch from Gallery3 to Piwigo. While Piwigo looks really promising, I have one use case I was not able to find out how to solve with Piwigo:

I have albums that are somehow semi-private. I don't want them to be found from the main entry page (so, it should not be browseable for visitors to this album), however, if someone knows the link to the album (which should be a complex link including some hash or token, so not an easy human readable/recalling link) he/she should be able to access the album without required to log in.

Is there a way / or Piwigo plugin to achieve this behaviour?

Thanks in advance,
bye
Marcus.

Piwigo version: newest

The Event Cats extension http://piwigo.org/ext/extension_view.php?eid=326 can do what you want.  I've had a play with it, but not yet set it up on my live gallery.  You define a user, give that user permissions for specific albums, then use the extension to create a URL that essentially logs in with that user.
