Password protect a product, page or gallery

With our new feature, you can now password protect pages, products, and galleries. If you have a newsletter and only want to allow subscribers to access certain parts of your site, password protection is ideal because you may give out the password to these select few, or to loyal customers.

Enabling the Option to Password Protect:

The option to enable this setting is may be found in dashboard>website>settings. Scroll down to "Sitewide Messaging and Vacation Mode " section. At the very bottom, you will see the checkbox that says: "Allow me to password protect products pages and galleries." (shown below)

 

 

Check this box, and save.

You will now have the option enabled to password protect a gallery, product, page, or blog/news entry!

To protect a gallery:

 Go to dashboard>content>galleries. Click "edit" under the chosen gallery. Scroll down to "password protect this gallery" and select "This Gallery is protected." You have the option to let those who do not have the password to see the title. If you'd like them to be able to see the title, check "show title." Next, you will choose the password for the gallery.

Don't forget to save your changes!

To protect a product:

Go to store>product and click edit under the chosen product. Scroll down to "Password protect this product." Check the box that says "this product is password protected." You have the option to let those who do not have the password to see the title or not. If you'd like them to be able to see the title, check "show title." Next, you will choose the password for the given product.

Don't forget to save!

 

To Protect a Page:

If you have a custom page you would like to protect, you may do so by going to dashboard>content>pages, selecting edit under the page you have chosen. Scroll down to "password protect this page" and check the box that says "this page is password protected." You have the option to let those who do not have the password to see the title or not. If you'd like them to be able to see the title, check "show title." Next, you will choose the password for the given page.

Password Protect Blog Entry, News Article or Event:

If you have a blog entry, news article, or event you would like to protect, you may do so by going to dashboard>content>pages, and selecting edit under the blog, news, or events. Then, chose which blog entry, news article, or event you would like to edit and click "edit." For Blog, you would scroll down to "password protect this Blog entry" and check the box that says "this blog is password protected." You have the option to let those who do not have the password to see the title or not. If you'd like them to be able to see the title, check "show title." Next, you will choose the password for the given page. For news articles and events it is the same.

In my dashboard there is no option to enable password protection. I have the basic plan.
