Hey Monique, i know synthasite is working hard to help us.
I m just curious to know, how this feature would be? (as i can see company is considering this idea)
would we able to make some pages public, and some pages accessed only by members?
And how the system would work? i mean would it let us choose and allow to accept people, or it would automatically generate passwords for users?

And yeah, i would be really happy to know when this feature would be introduced? :-)

Hi Monica and Jake

We are going to introduce part of what you are asking for very soon. You will have the option to password protect your entire site, or certain pages on your site that you select. You will assign a single username and password that you will need to share with members. One idea would be to add a Wufoo form for them to register, they could fill it in and you could send them the password! This feature is literally around the corner. A week or two and the most!

The more complicated aspect of this feature is going to take much longer:
the ability for people to register on your site and be assigned their own username and password. The reason for this is that we have to make it possible for each user to have their own database for their websites, and the database has to be able to "move" with them wherever they take their sites. This is not a trivial task, as you can imagine! So although we are full well aware that there is huge popular demand for this feature, building it is going to take time, and we don't have a release date yet. We don't like to make promises we can't keep, so we will let you know when we have made a lot of progress on the feature and we are nearly ready to go live with it.

In the meantime we hope the password protection feature is going to come in useful! We are excited about making it available with the next SynthaSite release.

Best wishes
Monique

Hi Monique

What do you mean by the database has to "move" with the user's site?

Do you mean if someone downloads their site to their computer and uploads it to another web host, that they will have to be able to have the database go with them too? Or did you mean something else?

Thanks,
Nathan

Hi Nathan,
Monique is not currently online but I am quite sure that is what she was referring to.
