Question

If I put a regular curtain in front of the door to stop outside people from seeing in the house, I only can open the door from outside as from inside curtains stop me even if they are open.

So I tried to put on the door glass panes little lace curtains, as in real life, that would not stop it from opening/shutting down.  But the door opens leaving the curtains in the shut down position.  Then I tried to link the curtains to the door, ctr3-shift-link the curtain to the door, this did not work and now my house creator (who normally was the merchant of houses in the market place from whom I bought it) in my house edit/general tab is Bill Linden!

Do not know what to do, am looking for some tintable glasses, as in motorhomes, that I can see from inside outside but not from outside inside the house, provided that I'll be able to replace the regular door glasses.

Of course one could say delete the house after having taken notice of the position rotation axes values, and rez it again to see what happens.

It seems doable, but I avoid stressing situations, and look for easy going things always.

P.S.  The house is mod but to change the glasses I must select  face, so when I do so, it selects the whole door together with the glasses and has a texture door with glasses,  So I suppose I must fnd tinted glasses textures "doors with glasses" to replace the whole door texture?

I contacted the creator and offer no solution, In the mean time there is a way to open the door through the curtains with zoom in tool of camera control, (one can see the door zooming in through the curtains and open it)  so I left everything as it is,  Or even turn the camera outside the house and open the door from outside.  I'm lucky thisdoor remains open until one to close it.  Problem resolved nevertheless am not sure where to give he kudos.  Did anyone mention my solution or not?

the door will only respond to touching, or some, also to a chat command or detect you walk to it, you will have to find out in the manual. If it responds to chat or detect you, you could rezz a phantom curtain in front of it.

if the door is mod, you can change the texture, or side, of the door. Or even add a new script that does respond to chat or detection.

Sean's solution is the easiest one, as long as you have mod perms for the door.  Just modify it by making the glass less than fully transparent, or by applying a curtain texture to it.  As you have discovered, the problem with addding an extra prim to the door is that the door's script has to know to rotate that prim as well as the rest of the door.  Unless it was written for that specific purpose, the script will simply ignore your extra prim, leaving it right where you can walk into it and bloody your nose.  If you're an adept scripter and have mod perms, you could certainly write your own door script to replace what's there now.  It's just easier to tint the glass instead.
