Index > Adding Password Protection

Wizz-it allows you to create a private website, or certain pages on your site private, by adding password protection.

What this feature allows you to do:

  • Assign a single password to your site.
  • Choose whether you want to lock (password protect) all the pages on your site or a specific page.
  • You can then share the password with people you want to give access to the protected pages.
  • When they access those pages they will be asked to type in the password before being given access.

What this feature does not do:

  • Allow people to register for a username and password on your site. This is a feature we would definitely like to provide in the future. We will need to do quite a bit of development to make this possible, so we can't make any commitments about if or when it will be released.

To Password Protect your Whole site:

  1. Click on Site > Site Settings.
  2. In the Site Properties section, click on the Password Protection option.
  3. This will inform you if your site is currently password protected or not.
  4. Click on the link which will take you to the Add Page form, allowing you to create a Splashpage.
  5. Fill in the fields, keeping the 'Make this page my website's splash page' checked and enter the password in the Password Protection field.
  6. Press the Save button at the bottom to save your changes.
  7. Press the Publish button and refresh your website to see your password protection in action!

To Password protect an individual page:

  1. Click on the Site -> Manage Pages link
  2. Click on the Settings link of the page you want to password protect.
  3. In the settings page scroll down to the Password protection field and enter a password.
  4. Press the Save button at the bottom to save your changes.
  5. Press the Publish button and refresh your website to see your password protection in action!
