Visitor Signup & Login
Allow website visitors to signup for the site with an email and password giving them access to "members-only" pages or content. These emails could then be pulled into a database to allow the creation of email newsletters.
We want to let you know that we have a new feature: Page Visibility.
This new feature lets you control the visibility of each page on your website.
In the Webydo Studio, you can define any page as public, private or password protected.
Public: visible to everyone (default setting).
Private: visible only in the Webydo Studio.
Password Protected: visible only upon entering a username and password (these values remain the same regardless of page).
How It Works:
Go to the Pages & Navigation window.
Choose the page you wish to edit.
Click the Settings Icon.
Under Visibility choose: Public, Private or Password Protected (for this option you must enter a username and password).
Click OK and Publish.
Thank you for the feedback, if you have more questions please contact our support team.
Thank you for your comments.
We are working very hard to get this feature ready for you.
Check back for updates, and we will let you know once it's ready!
The Webydo Team
I too have clients who need this feature. At this time I am using another solution but I would love to be able to use Webydo for all accounts.
Important clients will eventually request a feature that has a secure portal... some sort of employee, or members area.
I know this because my 3 main accounts want a solution and I am not sure how to go about it
This is an absolute MUST have. The start of development was around August are we able to get an update please?
Looking forward to this coming onboard soon. Ironically enough just been in discussion with a client regarding this today.....
Keep us posted, thanks.
Any news? Such an important feature

Hi - hoping for an exciting update on this project :) Any news?
Any new news in this regard?
I am disappointed that this feature has been sitting seemingly idle for 8 months (and it's been 18 months since the first request). I had to build 2 sites over the weekend but could not consider Webydo. Why? Because it does not offer password protected pages yet. C'mon guys, it's a must have for a lot of folks!
I believe password protection and access to "controlled" content can be achieved if a feature rich blog is added within a widget. That's my work-around for today. DK

I would like to be able to password protect the site page-by-page with the same password unlocking just those pages. Once a person enters in the password, they have access to the "member" content without having to have their own login.

You can use the form tool to allow users to sign up for a newsletter, however at the moment Webydo does not incorporate databases so it will have to be edited manually.
In terms of password protected pages, this is due in 8-10 weeks!

I would really love it if you just add a form that allowed visitors to sign up for my newsletter. I already have a mailing list of 700 + people who simply want to keep in touch. It would be marvellous to be able to add my existing list to a database on webydo, which can then be expanded as new people sign in their full name and email. It would
An important feature for creating professional pages!
Do we have a time frame on completion of this function, it is just what I've been looking for for my website but I really need this functionality soon.
YES! This is one of the most important functions to developing a useful website. There isn't an online website builder out there that is focused on design and membership functions. It's either one or the other.

We have started the development process of this request.
We will keep you updated with the status as soon as we have updates.
Thanks for the feedback!
Really excited based on your hype/marketing only to discover, having submitted my own request for this issue, that this isn't even provided as a basic functionality yet while being promised for several months is extremely disappointing. Great concept but typical fail by hyping a tool that obviously isn't ready for afternoon programming let alone prime time.
Have just created a new idea which takes this idea a bit further, requesting greater support for OpenID login.
