Password-protected Page

Ryan Kilgore asked on October 22, 2020 16:46

Is there a way to have a password-protect a page through a single, global password (similar to Wordpress' "Password Protected" setting)?

I know that there's the Page > Security option in the editor to make a page require authentication, but I'm currently looking for a solution that doesn't involve creating user accounts.

The current use case is:

  • Webinar and conference attendees receive the password with their materials
  • Attendees can use this single password to visit the website to access videos and documents specific to that year's conference

Sharing of the single password isn't a big deal as none of the material is sensitive, but I've been tasked with finding a password-protected solution nonetheless.

If there's no simple solution in the page settings, would I be able to achieve this through hiding/showing various zones based on a text input on the page?

Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!

Did you manage to solve this?

We had created something similar for this in the past. We just had a custom Web Part that would fire up a password box. if not entered successfully the rest of the page would not load.

Hello David!

Yes, although we ended up solving it by deciding to indeed use individual user accounts for attendees, rather than a global password. At that point using Kentico's built-in account authentication and page security worked nicely.
