Sitebuilder Plus: Password Protected Pages
You can password protect pages that you don't want to be viewed by the public. Follow these steps to password protect individual pages:
- Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.
- Go to the page you'd like to password-protect.
- Click Page Settings in the top toolbar. Select Advanced Settings from the drop-down.
Then, enter a password for the page.
- Save and Publish the page and it will be password protected.
Warning: Search engines can't crawl any web page that is password protected. Your website may be penalized by ranking lower in search.
Sites that do not use Master Templates will always have the password field available on every page. However newer sites that were created with SiteBuilder Plus and include the Master Templates, have a feature where this can be turned on or off. If you need to set a password for a page, but don't see the option, click the "Background, Links, Footer" tab, and then you will see a button that says "Set for this page". After selecting that button, then go back to the "Advanced Settings" tab, and it will show the password field.
