Lightroom Web: Sharing multiple albums / folders

I love the ability to share a single album, but what I'd really like is the ability to share an entire folder that contains multiple albums at once. If like to be able to send my family a single URL that shows each album / folder as a separate link and have new albums just show up automatically (ie I'm trying to get an experience similar to SmugMug).

You can already.... but only one Gallery I believe.

Ya, that's the problem. I want to be able to share a single URL that will have many galleries on it (ie a folder). Ideally I would be able to publish a new album and have it show up without having to send a new URL.

I believe a Gallery is a single URL and works similar to a folder (but isn’t) in that you can add multiple albums.

If you go to the Share Icon on the left of screen (two bodies with heads) and then select Gallery at the top. You then get the option at the bottom of the screen to add albums. (Single link to copy is top right)

You're right - that's basic, but it fits exactly what I need. Thanks!

Another option that is included in the cost for lightroom to give you a smugmug ish typing feeling for family to go to one link would also be Adobe Portfolio. 

https://portfolio.adobe.com

I create all my albums how I want them, then connect each album to portfolio. The family member only has to keep up with one link and it looks better than gallery. 

Once you set up the page, its extremely easy to just add more albums and it auto updates the page for you. Its easier to use than smugmug and already included in the price :-) 

Here is a whole list of examples of how you can make yours look

Hope this helps

There are features I really like from gallery that don't appear to be available in Portfolio. For family photo sharing, I really need the ability to allow family members to download the photos (as I can do with gallery). I also like the slidesshow feature.
