Protected pages problem

I was protecting some content of my site with yola's password protected pages.
In normal methods , its secure and works fine.

But , I'd like to report these problems.:

pages not prohibited to Search engine robots by robots.Txt

some pages still accessibe through a sitemap . (third party and yola too)

i think that it is just to protect the enterance for that folder.

Anyone could access my members area through Google's "site:domain.Com" query.
Anyone can access site with manually crawling site through "freefind.Com"

finally I removed that feature,

thanks.

Hello Ayesh,
Unfortunately at this time it is not possible to prohibit search engines through the robots.txt file. This is something that is on our list of feature requests although I cannot say if something like that will be implemented. Can you tell me more about what you mean by "some pages still accessible through a sitemap"? Going to a password protected URL via any link should bring it up password protected.

I meant individual blog posts are still accessible.

If I've a protected blog page like example.Com/blog ,
blog posts are still available with links such as example.Com/blog/firstpost.Php , example.Com/blog/category/love/ , example.Com/blog/tag/tips/

hope me helped make yola better,
thanks.

Ok, I do see what you are saying on the individual blog posts being accessible. Unfortunately there really isn't a workaround for this right now, I'm sorry I don't have better news for you on that.
