Yola Password Protection problem

Hi, I'm Olly, site owner of http://amazeproductionsuk.yolasite.com.
I've used Yola to set up my first business and it's been fantastic.
I'm earning revenue from Google AdSense and the compatibility with Yola has been very useful.
The features and support are really good and way better than anything I've ever seen on any free hosting site!

However, there is a little niggle that's annoying me a bit. I've set up a 'Staff Login and Notices' page so I can post important notices, jobs and information for my employees to look at, and I've made it password protected so I can tell my employees the login details and they can access the area, however I've found that once you've entered the login details successfully, you don't have to enter the details again.

I'm slightly irritated by this as I'd much prefer the need for my employees to log in every time they want to access the staff area, for security reasons as well as making sure it doesn't look like the password protection has been disabled in a moment of unprofessionalism. Is there a setting or a box I need to tick that I've missed so that the login page appears every time?

Hello Olly West

I'm afraid that the Password Protection feature is not really a login functionality. When visitors log into a page you password-protected, a cookie will be saved in their browser, so that they will keep having access to that page until the cookie is removed, e.g. by clearing cache and cookies of the browser.

What you require is probably rather a membership login feature which we unfortunately don't offer at the moment. However, Yola customers have been successfully using the service of third-party providers by embedding their code into their Yola websites. For more information please see this thread.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
