Private or public

#1

The private/public toggle doesn’t make sense. How do I know if it is set to private or public? What is the default?


#2

The default is private, meaning it must be accessed through the API using credentials. The toggle works as you would expect, if you see “private” it is private. If you see “public” it is public.

Public, allows anyone who knows the URL to view it.
You can toggle your permissions and view http://objects.dreamhost.com/my-bucket to see the difference, or see more info in the wiki,

Thanks. It looks like they’ve changed the slider (in the control panel). The new one is less confusing.

If I’m not mistaken, there are currently a few minor display bugs with the slider which are making it show up wrong under some circumstances. Those should be cleared up by early next week.
