Yola,

as you may be aware i was planing to leave yola due to some issues i have been having with the site.

i dont wish to leave but there is one issue that need to be sorted other wise i will have to leave.

Password protection is a great service but i have clients which need Individal areas which need to be password protected (due to data and child protection) but you currenly don't support this which is a pain. can you give me any light at the end of the tunnel or is it some thing you are not looking to solve ? as if i cant get this support then I may have to leave and go else were

Hello mathew

We would be sorry if you left us. Have those other issues you were talking about been sorted? Please let us know if not, and we are happy to assist you further and solve any problem you may still have using Yola.

I understand that you request that login/membership feature. We are aware that there seems to be a growing demand for this feature, and we are considering it. Please note that this would not be an easy add-on, but a very complex feature that we will have to carefully plan and consider. So I'm afraid we cannot offer it to you now, but it has been being discussed.

I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you for now, but I still hope that our other great features can convince you to go on with Yola. Please let us know if you have any questions or issues we can help you with.

Thanks your feed back.

my other issues have been sorted as for the above issue i think it would be a good idea to get this inplace as meny of your competitors already offer this as part of their sites!

i personaly dont want to go but if i the situation has not cahnged by sept when my renewal is up then i will have no choice.

i can understand that its a large oreration but i also think that its worth the undertaking as it will keep alot more cutomers and even attract new ones

Yes I use Poppydog and its amazing! Its really easy to install just copy HTML code into the widgets on pages that you want password protected, if you want to know anything else about the service just ask as I've managed to get a lot out of the service

I could use that feature as well, but for now I am using authpro for a membership server.

Hi mathew,

There is not an ETA on adding memberships a this time. Stefan gave you as much information as we have available at this time. Many of our members are using AuthPro with great success. That is our best suggestion at this time.

Hi mathew, yes by using PoppyDog the way you have members can access all pages, what you need to do is set up a member (home)page for each member and then only the specified user will be granted access to that page/pages, if you need any other help just ask :)
