Hi ck

I seem to have missed this question. Sorry for the late response.

Right now we do not have password protection for sites, although this feature is on our list and we intend to add it in future. You will then be able to manage users of your site and restrict access to people you share your password with.

Hi joonyc,

Yes, this feature is available now. Yola 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 login 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 login ID and password with people you want to give access to the protected pages.
4. When they access your protected pages they will be asked to type in the login ID and password before viewing these pages.

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 we hope 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 name 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 that gives you an option to protect (lock) the new page.
6. Preview your protected page to see what the login 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.

I hope this meets your needs.

How about user management on the admin side. Any way I can create new users to have access to certain sites within my account?

Hello Jethro13

The only way someone else can edit your site is if you give them your login email and password. Unfortunately we don't yet have a feature where you can setup multiple logins and passwords to edit the same site.

My best suggestion is that you create a separate account for the site you want to collaborate on and share these login details with the relevant people. This way you can keep the shared site separate from any other sites in your account.

I'm sorry we can't be of more help in this regard.
