is there anyway to password protect posts?
i want to show my clients their images in order to confirm the work, I need to post their image & get them a link with a password to access it. is it possible inside ghost?
I saw them before post here, I want to only password protect specific posts not the entire site.
Hmmmm… nothing native in Ghost because there would not be a widespread utility for such functionality, but if you’re good with code, you can roll something like this.
With Ghost Members, you can authorize the viewing of a post based on affiliation (e.g., member, paid, free, etc.). I don’t see why that can’t be reversed engineered to use the password protect functionality instead. It’ll be a bit of imagination, time, and programming.
If you need something more expedient, you can simply use the aforementioned Ghost Members feature, like:
- Implement a Ghost Members “free” tier.
- Create a post w/ images and designate it as member only using
‘post access levels’.
- Have the client sign up via email to view that particular post.
Success! That may be the simplest way of doing it.
Thanks for suggestion, I should think about this.
As I currently run my graphic design / photography studio site on Ghost, I prefer to have this function also in my own site & don’t use 3rd party systems.
