Can I password protect a folder?

Question

I've read the posts about this question. The last one I see is from 2013. Is this possible yet? This seems like it should be an easy thing for Square Space to fix? My non-profit's site has a members' only area. I want to protect the top-level page ( "Members' Only") with one PW which will allow access to all the sub-pages under it. Is this really not possible? What am I missing. Thanks!

This is not possible. Password protection does not work in this way. It can only apply to individual pages or to an entire site.

I need to hide specific folders with seperate documents listed on my site. It is not user friendly to have to password protect each page. Is this because they want to sell membership sites such as memberful and gopaywall?

Move with the times SS, please find a way to allow membership sites to categorize content.

No. A folder is simply a way of grouping pages, in the PAGES panel or on the navigation. It cannot be password protected.

No. These products do not (and cannot) protect Squarespace content as it is not technically possible. Squarespace are working hard to add this feature, but it is complex and time-consuming due to the way Squarespace 6.0 (and 7.0) was architected.

You can add your voice to the requests for this feature by raising a ticket through Customer Care. They'll document your feedback and share it with the appropriate team.
