I understand it’s possible to password protect the blog page, and all blogs therein, but is it possible to password protect only specific blogs, or is it all or nothing?
I want some blogs to be public that will be able to rank, but I want to post some updates as blogs that will be accessible only to investors.
I’m unable to share a preview sorry as we’ve not published yet, but I trust the above is enough to get some assistance.
There is no built-in support for CMS item-specific password protection.
However, you can simulate it as follows;
- Blogs, contains all of your blog content
- PublicBlogs, contains a single-ref to Blogs. Contains records only for your public blogs.
PublicBlogs pulls all of the content through the single-ref to populate the page, however it will only generate pages for the public ones you’ve listed.
Blogs will be password protected, but it’s the only way to access the full range of blogs, especially the secure ones.
That gives you the item-specific security you’re looking for, but at two separate URL paths, so you’ll need to think about how you want your navigation to work, to link to the appropriate public or private pages.
You could split your blog across 2 CMS’s and use password protection or memberships on only one.
You could also use a 3rd party solution like Memberstack and choose which specific pages you’d like protected.
The first option solves this for only requiring a password to view, the latter two would require a user account with user registration.
Ah OK, that makes sense. That worked! Thanks for your help.
