Is it possible to enable public users to download an entire album via a Portfolio website?

I am moving to Adobe Porfolio from Google Photos. My primary audience is friends & family (e.g., wife, parents, kids, aunts, uncles, etc.). As such I would like to enable users to be able to download the fullsize original versions of all images directly via the Portfolio site, as Google has allowed in Picasa / Google Photos for ~15 years. 

I know that I can share an individual link to an album via Lightroom, but I can't share a link to a page with all of my albums with my family. As such, I want to enable family members to download complete albums from my Portfolio gallery -- ideally with the click of a button.

Is this possible? If yes, is it possible to get the photo names changed so that the downloaded ZIP file maintains the order of the photos in the online album?

Thank you in advance!

To be clear: I want my albums in Adobe Portfolio to enable downloading of the entire album in functionally the exact same way that users can do so today in Lightroom web -- but with the functionality to be available to whoever is on the gallery page and not just someone with a private link to my lightroom Shared Albums.

At the moment I don't see that Portfolio allows anything to be downloaded, it seems much more of a simple showcase site. Whether that functionality will be developed at some point, only Adobe can say....but they rarely pre-annouce product development plans.

In the meantime, have you looked at the Gallery feature of the LrWeb app? That allows you to put together a collection of any of your albums under a single URL. Once shared with your family, when they open that link in a browser they will see a list of all the albums contained in the Gallery, which they can browse (and download) individually. It's a much simpler way of sharing many albums with the same users, the only downside at the moment is that we can only have a single gallery...we can add and remove albums from it, but we can't have several different galleries each with their own set of albums. Pretty sure there's a feature request around here to allow multiple galleries, so it would be worth adding your vote if you're interested.

Thank you. I had not seen the gallery feature in LRWeb, but will check it out and provide a link to family on the Portfolio page in case they want to download the albums. Much appreciated.

For Adobe — this is a clunky solution. Would request that you enable download capabilities within Portfolio that mirror those in LRWeb
