We've just launched one of the most requested Edicy Pro features ever — password protected pages. No longer is Edicy simply a tool to throw things out to the internets. From now on you can hide any page on your website behind password and choose the people who can see it.



Here are only few examples you can use this new feature for:

  • Make a sort of mini-intranet, blog or bulletin board for your team.
  • Share price lists to a restricted audience.
  • Share unfinished new webiste sections with advisors.
To make page visible only to the selected few, open the page in editor and in the page properties view from the bottom right corner mark the it to be password protected. Now you can go to the privacy settings in the same view.

To invite viewers, just type in their email addresseses. Invitation e-mail will be sent to them with the links to your site. They'll pick their own passwords and log in to your protected page.

Log in to view a password protected page

All the pages created under the selected private page in site structure will also be password-protected, including the new pages you create later.

Please note that this feature is currently in beta stage. However we've been testing it for awhile, minor glitches may still appear. Also, improvements to this are already in the works! If you find something missing that should be there, let us know.

And as a sidenote, we also made copy-pasting content to your website from Word documents or other websites more smooth and reliable and fixed some smaller annoyances with text editing.

    But all images and files used are still open to anyone as per this warning: http://www.edicy.com/support/content#85 ?
    So it's pretty useless e.g. to protect a private gallery with a password, isn't it?
