Web Easy does not provide a means of creating password protected pages. The reason is that this functionality must reside on the server to be secure. If a Web Easy page required you to enter a password before progressing to another page, there would be two problems: - The password would have to be stored in the page itself, and would be visible to anyone viewing the page source. - The URL of the page you go to after entering the password would also be stored in the page itself, and thus visible to anyone viewing the page source. One (insecure) solution is to build two separate web site documents, one as your main site, and the other published to a subfolder of your main site. You would only provide the URL of this second site to people that you wanted to allow in, however they could always tell their friends what the URL is. For a truly secure solution - one where the web server itself checks usernames and passwords - contact your hosting provider to see if they provide this service.
