Synthasite allows you to create a private website, or make part of your site private by password protecting certain pages on your site.
What this feature allows you to do:
1. Assign a single log in ID (username) and password to your site.
2. Choose whether you want to lock (password protect) all the pages on your site.
3. You can then share the log in ID and password with people you want to give access to the protected pages.
4. When they access those pages they will be asked to type in the log in ID and password before being given access.

What this feature does not do:
1. Allow people to register for a username and password on your site. This is a registration feature which we hope to release in future.

How to use the Password Protection feature:
1. Click on the Site Manager tab
2. Click on "Site Password Protection" underneath the list of pages of your site
3. Add a login and password and tick the pages you would like to protect
4. You can easily protect all your pages by clicking on "Lock All" or take off the password protection by clicking on "Unlock All"
5. When you create a new page, you will see a check box in the new site dialog that gives you an option to protect (lock) the new page.
6. Preview your protected page to see what the log in form will look like and to test your log in and password
7. To make the change effective on your live site, click on the yellow 'Update my Site' button

PS Dont forget your password protect sign in info...

If you do forget you can check your site manager to find out what it is.

Hi ricardo

Please lets keep the forums clean. I understand you are having difficulties but there are ladies and children who use this forum and such language is uncalled for.

To remove the password protection it's simple

1) In your site editor click on the "Site manager" tab in the top toolbar
2) Scroll down to the Lock and click on the "Site password protection" link
3) In the next popup click the "Unlock all" link and then click "OK"
4) Update your site

This will remove the password protection

Ricardo,

Is this happening when you try to login to your account from the SynthaSite homepage?

We would like to help you, but I do need to repeat Ed's request that you ask politely and without swearing at us. We do our best to help everyone in these forums as quickly as we can.

In looking at your post it sounds more like you have an invalid HTML and you need to either remove the widget which is causing the problem or delete the page and recreate it to access your site builder.

This bug happens when a code is introduced which conflicts with the site builder.

If you delete the page with the problem the error should go away. All your remaining pages will remain. If it happens to be your index page then when you delete it the index page will be replaced with a new fresh index page.

Open your site editor and on the troubled page

1) Click the "Delete page" tab
2) In the next popup box click "OK"
3) Recreate your page without the last code you included before your site was unusable.

It is always best to use a test page with unknown code...
