Announcing Multiple Usernames and Password Protection for Individual Posts and Pages!

We've been working hard on a few new features that we think you're going to love and we're happy to announce that they've been released to our Beta Team members!

First of all, Beta Team members can now create unique usernames and passwords for visitors to access their site.  No more one username and password to view your site!  You can easily give each visitor their own username!  Just go to the Settings tab, enable password protection, and you'll see the option to add more usernames.

Additional_users

And once you've added all of your users, the best part is that now you can restrict access to individual posts and Pages on a per username basis!  This means that if you have a post that you want the usernames Justine and Mary to see, but not Steve, you can accomplish it easily with just a few check marks!

To do this, after the usernames have been created, simply go to the Compose page and write your post or Page.  You would then click Set Users in the right column on the Compose page.

Set_users

Check the box to each user you wish to have access to the post or page before you publish.

Userboxes

Now after the post is saves, only the users that have been selected will be able to view this post!

You can read more about this feature in our Knowledge Base.  Don't forget that it's currently restricted to Beta Team members, so if you haven't already signed up, head over to your Account tab and join!

We love this feature and can't wait to hear your feedback.  If you have questions or want to let us know what you'd like to see to make the feature better, just open a help ticket and a Typepad Support team member will be happy to assist you!
