Pass the password to a protected page in the URL

Recommended Posts

I have a blog page on my website which I wish to only make available to certain people.  I have hidden the page from SEO and password protected it. 

My question, is it possible to pass the password in the URL that I provide people so that they do not have to type it in?

The password is "66qes6jFayof" if you want to play around with it.

If there's a sitewide password, you can use a URL Query.

I tried that but I am still being prompted to enter the password.

Sorry, I misread your question. The URL query can only be used with sitewide passwords, not page-specific passwords like this one, as they must be entered manually.

@paul2009 I saw that code on your site! Perfect for reviews of a site before it launches..

I really wished it could work on the page-level password, for commerce or portfolio sections, do you think that is a feature that Squarespace could introduce in the future?  It would be really helpful for sharing portfolios that can't be shared publicly with potential clients.

I wish this was possible too. 

I don't imagine this will be a priority for Squarespace, but I do recommend that you raise this as a feature request, explaining why this would be helpful to Circle members. You can do this via Squarespace Customer Care using a support ticket. If you experience any difficulties contacting Squarespace, please read how to contact Squarespace.
