Lr web gallery issues: documentation, initial setup, icon confusion

Hi, I wanted to test out the web gallery function and compare it to flickr, so I found the instructions here:


...and quickly realized this official documentation was out of date and the product no longer matched the provided screenshots above or the description in the above website.


Eventually I found the gallery that was very hidden away behind an icon that I thought was the People/face-detect icon, turned it on, and got the rest to work.  Took me about 30 minutes or so.


The bug I found: the "Share in Gallery" menu option available in each Album on Lr Web does absolutely nothing and provides no notification--a total no-op--until you find the gallery and turn it on for the first time.  After that, Share in Gallery finally seems to work and give a notification, whether the Gallery is actually turned on or not.


Icon issues:





 this is the people/face detection icon from the Lr app.


  this is Lr web sharing icon.  Too similar, especially since there's no caption!
