How To
I would like to add a "log-in" feature to my website which would require visitors to log in before they can access any of the pages. It seems like every website I go to has one, but I'm really having a hard time finding anything here about setting it up. I am truly a cherry, so any help (in the simplest, most detailed manner) would be greatly appreciated.

Hello rkosha,

Thank you for your question about adding a login feature to restrict access to your website. I see from the notes on your account that you have been using the Premium Website Builder. While the Premium Website Builder does make it easy to quickly get a website up and running, it does have some limitations. The easiest way to implement the type of login feature you are looking for is to use a different tool to create your site (such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal) and then add a plugin or module that adds that functionality to your site.

For instance, with WordPress you can install a membership plugin which will allow you to control the content that members can see on your site. I did a quick search of the plugin repository at WordPress and there are over 500 membership plugins available.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
