Folder settings.

Folder settings are also accessible from within any folder on your site. Navigate to your Site, then browse to any folder and select the Settings button from the section bar. The folder settings overlay has three buckets of actions.

Basics.
In the Basics tab, you can Title the folder, add Meta Description and Meta Keywords, choose a Feature Image, and enter a Custom URL for the folder.

Security and sharing.
In the Security and Sharing tab you can set the Folder’s Visibility and Access.

If you'd like to password protect the folder, select People with Password from the Access drop-down menu and create the password here as well.

Galleries and pages within a folder inherit the privacy setting of the folder. 

A password at the folder level requires visitors to know the password to see any galleries and their contents within that folder.

A public folder will be visible to viewers on your /browse page, for example, even if all galleries within it are unlisted. However, the unlisted galleries won't be visible from within the folder. 

Selling.
In the Selling tab you can assign the entire folder and its contents a pricelist. 

If you'd like to set a pricelist for a folder from the Selling tab, select the drop-down menu and choose the pricelist you want to apply to the folder.

Galleries within a folder inherit the pricelist setting of the folder.
