Why are the two options (unflagged and rejected) in filtering menu for shared photos are unavailable?



How do I make available only photos that have not been rejected?

Right! I was thinking the same when I lastly shared an album but forgot to post it here

There are 2 things I can think of:

1. If there's not a share url yet (i.e. you haven't turned sharing on) then many of the options in the share tab are disabled.
2. The "Filtering is disabled" messaging is confusing -- we should probably change that to something like "no filters selected".

I should also note that if you expand the controls in the bottom of the "Display" tab, the filtering options are also there (and can be used before you turn on the share). So there's a little bug/inconsistency here as well.

If this isn't working, can you let me know what browser / OS you're using.

I’m not sure to understand. You mean if you apply a filter to an album, it will be applied to the shared album?

The same setting can be controlled in the display tab -- this is the UI I'm talking about:

Ok, I had the same in mind and we were talking about this one: it would be good to add a filter allowing to hide the rejected images; instead of only showing the picked ones.

To avoid any confusions: we agree that this filter is totally independent of the one in the grid view?

Re: confusion, yes we're in total agreement.

For rejected images, we made a change in October so those will start getting hidden from shares by default. Because we didn't want to change the photos displayed in existing shares though, some shares won't have that behavior by default. On LrWeb, just going to the display tab or applying one of these flag/rating filters will update the share so that rejected photos are hidden.
