Password Protect a page

 Under the last platform of portfolio 3 this option was availble and a bonus to protect our work, being able to give access to those whom we wanted, and deny those who we did not. Now under the guise of this new platform whislt there have been some improvements others have been forfeited. Myself and others interested would happily go back to the former platform for simplicity of use.


Surely a simple addition of this code could be added, to the body or something equally simple that would work.

<SCRIPT>
function passWord() {
var testV = 1;
var pass1 = prompt('Please Enter Your Password',' ');
while (testV < 3) {
if (!pass1)
history.go(-1);
if (pass1.toLowerCase() == "agreedaccess") {
alert('You Got it Right!');
window.open('protectpage.html');
break;
}
testV+=1;
var pass1 =
prompt('Access Denied - Password Incorrect, Please Try Again.','Password');
}
if (pass1.toLowerCase()!="password" & testV ==3)
history.go(-1);
return " ";
}
</SCRIPT>
<CENTER>
<FORM>
<input type="button" value="Enter Protected Area" onClick="passWord()">
</FORM>
</CENTER>

Hello,


Thank you for your post. Yes, I understand; however, even if the password protect feature was removed, we have also added the client gallery feature. Here, you may add the images that you want to keep private. If you want to share it to others, you can generate a link and also a password. I hope you can check it out and try to play with it to familiarize yourself. You can access it by going to Blog | Store | Clients > Manage Client Galleries.


As for the password protect feature, I will send it as suggestion to our development team for further consideration. Have a good day!

Yeah it would be great to have a password protect feature for specific pages :) That's the only reason why I'm not switching from portfoliobox 3 to portfoliobox 4. I unfortunately don't need the other features that client galleries has to offer. So if there was a feature to just add password protection to whichever pages we choose like in version 3, that'd be great!

Hello Jennifer,


The password protection has already been submitted to the developers as a suggestion. However, we still haven't heard of any updates regarding it. It will be helpful if you can give us some good points on why you need this feature as client gallery is already available which is very similar. If you can provide some good points to back up the suggestion, it will really be helpful. 


Happy holidays!

Hi,


I need to put a password in one of my pages because I have some parts of my porfolio under protection (they are under develepmoent right now). The client gallery doesn't have the same features. It doesn't work for me and my porfolio. How I can switch to porfoliobox3?? I need this password protection, please. I thought that was for pro clients so I made this update. What can I do?


Thank you!

Other people are asking the same question as myself here, I wanted to have page protection as in portfolio 3 by the means that to enter the website you have to enter a passphrase to gain entry. Over past few months there has been numerous images copied from my site and reposted onto competitors, sure I could watermark everything. But I want to have the ability to block those by means of a password who use use my website unfairly.


Alternatively i would like to ask the question is there a way back to going on portfolio 3. disapointing really moving back when technolgy is moving forward.

Hello, 


I hope you are all doing well. For now, the only workaround I can suggest is by using the client gallery. It works similarly with the password protected page. You can add photos inside and set a password before you share it to others. For more information about the client gallery, kindly check out this link


As for downgrading the version of your account, I'm sorry but it is currently not possible. 


I hope you understand. Please rest assured that your suggestions are being reviewed carefully by our development team and will be taken for further consideration.
