Add password protection to a page on your Wix site so that only visitors who have the password are able to view it.

 

To Password Protect a page: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > click the Settings wheel for the relevant page > under Settings and SEO, check the box next to Protect Page > click Add Password Protection > enter the password > click OK.

 

Note: Make sure to send the password to visitors who should have access to these pages.

    Password protection not working for website

    Hi, I have a website www.globalstudentpads.com created using WIX and I have added a password protection to the home page so that only people I want can view the contents of the site. However despite setting up this password the site is still loading as normal, and not asking for a password to access.

     

    Please advise.

     

    Thanks,

    Hello, 

    Dina, can you please elaborate a little further on the solution you are suggesting?

    I do not get what you imply by "a second menu for all other pages by adding individual buttons"

    It's quite urgent as it is our wedding site and the password has already distributed via the invitations. Unluckily, I have not realized that the password was only protecting pages and not the whole site. 

    For the time I have member login which is even worse :(

    Than you in advance, 

    Eugenia

      Hello Eugenia ,

      The workaround Dina suggested means you create one main page and instead of having all the pages you want protected in your menu you create a button to each on of the these pages, you can order all the buttons and have them look like a second menu composed from buttons.

       

      This way your users will only need to enter the password once and will be able to navigate to all the other pages on your site.  

       

      Please keep in mind: You will need to hide from the main navigation bar all the pages under the Main Portfolio page.

       

      To hide an individual page from search engines: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > next to the relevant page, click the Settings wheel > under SEO Page Settings, check the box next to Hide page from search results. 

       

       

      To link a button to an external URL: Click the button to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Link To > click Web Address > under Insert a web address, enter the URL > choose whether the link should open in a new window or the same window > click OK.

    I am using wix.com for my professional portfolio.  Currently each page/link is password protected.  Is it possible for their to be an initial password when visiting my page, which will then give you access to all other pages.  It seems a little cumbersome to have to insert a password with each page when navigating my website.  Thank you!

      Hi Chris,

      Unfortunately, it is not possible to set a one time password for several pages.

      As a workaround you can try the following:

      You can add a main Portfolio page and password protect only this page.

      Go to the ' Main Portfolio  ' page and add a ' second ' menu for all other pages by adding individual buttons.

       

      This way your visitors will need to under the password only one time, on the Main Portfolio ' page and will be able to navigate to all other pages.

       

      Please keep in mind: You will need to hide from the main navigation bar all the pages under the Main Portfolio page.

       

      To hide an individual page from search engines: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > next to the relevant page, click the Settings wheel > under SEO Page Settings, check the box next to Hide page from search results

       

       

      To link a button to an external URL: Click the button to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Link To > click Web Address > under Insert a web address, enter the URL > choose whether the link should open in a new window or the same window > click OK.

    Website access

    Hi, I have published my site and want users to be prompted with a password only. At present, each time I update the website and re-publish, access to the site is prompted with a "provide email address" and wait manager approval etc. How do I avoid this? Thanks Stephen B

      I have merged your question with the relevant thread.

       

      I visited your live site and was prompted with password only, as demonstrated in the screenshot below:

       

      Please make sure that you send the password to your users in order for them to access the site.

       

      Please refer to the instructions and information in the best reply above.

      Thanks Nitzan...but was is currently happening is that every time  I edit my site and re-publish, people get prompted for an email address address (manage site member) and I get asked to approve a new site member. If they refresh the screen a few times, only then will it ask for a password only. Hope that makes sense. Thanks,

      Hi,

      I have accessed your site and noticed that i was not published after the changes. 

      Please note that publishing and saving a site are not the same. Publishing the site will make the changes live for the site's users. 

      I have published your site and it is now asking for a password as Nitzan showed you.

      Hi Rony, thanks but after I edit my site I first save it and then I publish it. When I try to view it live after any changes it prompts me for an email. Only after I have refreshed a number of times does it ask for the password. I have tested this on a no of computers now with the same result. Thanks,

      Hi,

      That's currently not possible. Regarding your original problem, I couldn't replicate it on my end. Prompted only a password on my end.

      Please read the above Best Reply for instructions of how to password protect a page in your Wix site. You can ask for a password in the Home Page, so only the users who know it will be allowed to access your website.

       

      Beyond that, you can also add a Login Member box.

      What is the step to process to link my website address to my new website instead of getting the Wix address.

      When connecting your domain to the Wix name servers there are two important steps that you must complete.

       
      1) Firstly you must go to Subscriptions > Domains) and add your domain. 
      For more information, please click here.
      2) Please contact your domain host and ask them to connect your domain via the name servers (ns1.wix.com & ns2.wix.com).
       
      Both of these steps are essential and the omission of either will result in a domain that’s not connected correctly.
      You can troubleshoot your domain here.
       
      Note: Please make sure to firstly add your domain name under the Wix domain manager

    Dear Wix Team,

    I really love this feature and have implemented it on my company's website. However, when the initial pop-up appears the text at the top of the box says,

    "I already have a user, Login" 

    Shouldn't it read, "I already have a username, Login"

    Is there any way to edit this text?

    Thanks very much for any help you can provide here.

    Best,
