Password protection. Is it possible to have a second password protected page on my site, with a different login and password to the one I have already?

Hi Sal,

At the moment you can not have separate passwords for your pages.

There is however a workaround.

The first step is to create a website for each page you are wanting to have a separate password for. You then create your main site and you set up the menu links to each page that you want a different password to as separate pages. Then link your menu links to the websites that you created earlier.

Here's how to link the pages to the websites:

1. Create a new page with the name of the site you want to link to.
2. Drag and drop a HTML Widget onto your page.
3. Paste this tag into the HTML editor:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=">

"2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number
"url" is the URL it redirects to, so, replace the URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.

So essentially, what you will have is your main site which will have it's pages redirect to a new site which will have their own separate password protection.

What a clever workaround, Kershnee. I'll keep that in mind for the future. Sal, let us if you implement that. I'd like to know how it works out for you.
