Password Protect / Lock INDIVIDUAL portfolio project pages


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Pretty bummed out right now. Just finished a week long migration from cargo collective only to find out the portfolio sub page don't seem to be lockable. My plan is the basic one.

My site structure is essentially a home page and 3 sub portfolios: art, design, and writing

I see how you can lock an entire portfolio. I do not need or want to do this. I want to lock ONLY 2-3 individual projects. 

Please tell me I'm missing something or that all this requires is an upgrade.

Otherwise why in the heck is this not possible. Seems so basic.

thanks!

@AnthonyAnthonyYou're spot on. I want this feature as well and it's not available based on my last contact with Squarespace.

I'm trying to find a work-around including creating a separate password-protected page and trying to override the Project link to direct to my separate page. 

For those who have portfolio work, much of our work is not public-facing and cannot be shared publicly but passwords allow us to show those who sign NDAs, etc. It's essential to a portfolio. 

@squarespace - Please prioritize this feature for your Creative folx

You can password a 7.1 portfolio page but not a portfolio section. 

Depending on the template such as Avenue you can password an index page in 7.0  or any page in that index as well. Some templates such as Brine, which is the inspiration for 7.1 will not allow pages in an index to be password protected.

Thanks for the quick reply. I understand it's not an available feature but I'm seeing over 7 threads requesting password functionality for portfolio pages in Squarespace. Is this something the Squarespace dev team can prioritize? 

I was told by dev support that it wasn't a prioritized enhancement but here are the threads I've found from Squarespace users from the last year to show you the interest in this. It would be a shame if all of these people moved to another platform if this functionality - that exists on other pages - can't be replicated to portfolio pages.

I keep seeing Squarespace's response as linking to this password page, which doesn't apply to the portfolio pages. In fact, this page says it's not available so please stop directing us there. Can you please add this to the Squarespace enhancement roadmap?

Here's another summary of the number of posts requesting this: https://forum.squarespace.com/topic/172039-disappointed-with-permissions-on-new-platform/?do=findComment&comment=404181

@creedon thanks for the reply. I've contacted them twice and the response has been "there's not enough interest in this feature". I'm seeing the opposite. 

I'm at the point of moving my sites to other platforms that can accommodate password protected portfolio pages

Having the same exact issue. Just spent 5 months creating a portfolio in 7.1 only to realize that I can't password protect individual portfolio pages. Really hoping that months of work hasn't been in vane because some client work can't be public. Does anyone have a workaround?

Thanks

currently the only way is to hide them from the portfolio page

it's not really good but is a temporary solution for now

4 months later and there's still no solution to password protecting Squarespace Portfolio pages.

I've requested a ticket through customer care on 3 occasions. There's now 12+ threads on this issue. Yay.
