How to show albums and sub-albums hierarchically?

Dear,
I have just installed Chevereto 3.X via Docker.
My main purpose is to share some memories with the family. To do so, my idea was to setup albums and to add sub-albums where this would be senseful.
The albums should be protected with a password so that anyone accessing the main album would also be able to see the sub-albums.

The concept looks like

Album 1 (password protected)
--> sub-album 1.1 (no additional authentication needed, but not visible without password for Album 1)
--> sub-album 1.2 (no additional authentication needed, but not visible without password for Album 1)

Album 2 (password protected)
--> sub-album 2.1 (no additional authentication needed, but not visible without password for Album 2)

However, after having added photos to the sub-albums, these show up in the "current" section of the landing page, while the (empty) main album is not showing up. What am I missing - or how could I ensure that there is a level of authentication for an "upper" level, while it would not be necessary for every sub-album?

Thank you for guiding me,
best regards

Gilhin

Albums by default show up only if it contains at least 5 images. You can configure that to N to show all albums regardless of the image count.

Thank you for pointing this out - but when I try to set it to "0", it says that "the number must be larger or equal 1".
Is there any way to overcome this - and would it help at all?

When you wrote that the sub-albums do not inherit permissions, the sub-albums would still be visible in the "Explore" area, right?
Would it help to use the same password for album and sub-albums, i.e. that the password only needs to be entered once?

There's no one click option for that, for such cases you need to edit directly the source code. You could also inject the value directly in the database.

No, like I said sub-albums are just for structure. Sub albums are a relatively new feature, is on its very early implementation.
