Hi JohnMastro

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 Synthasite hopes 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

Hope that helps you out

Happy site building

is there some way to do it so the person on the site can make their own username and password by creating an account like thing?

Hi mE,

There isn't an option like that available at this stage. Would Ed's suggestion work for you?

For starters You Guys at YOLA Totally ROCK !! I got this done on my site in a quicky but, Is there a way we can add a log out, cause once I close the site, and go back in, I can still go straight in without doing the log in again, and anyone using the same computer can access that page.

Hello Oneida,

With the password protection feature, when a visitor to your site enters the username and password this will put a cookie on their browser that will store the username and password so they don't have to enter it again the next time. Anytime someone accesses the password protected page from a computer that has never accessed the page before, they will be prompted for the username and password.

What you can do if you want to have the password and username reset each time someone leaves the site is have them clear the cache. Here is a link with more information on how to do this: Clear Browser Cache.

Hope this helps!

there are outside sources that allow you to create usernames and passwords that supposedly work well with Yola. I've never tried them but others have and had a success doing it. If you search through this forum for a similar topic from the last week or two you'll find the source. I remember having the conversation about a week or two ago.
