How To Create A Page Which Is Password Protected?


we're creating a page which has some manual for vendors signing up (how to guides etc) but we want to have this password protected, is there a way to do that?


As I have understood you correctly, it's possible only with code modification. We can help, contact us.

Best regards,


You can create pages for specific user groups and assign vendors to these user groups. On the clean installation I can see that customer usergroup can be assigned to vendor administrator

If you use a cs-cart 'page' and want the data restricted to vendors, as ecom suggests, put your vendors into a usergroup.

Unfortunately, 'pages' in cs-cart are only for the 'customer' area which is always in all-stores mode.

If your 'page' is a static page (like a pdf file), then you have lots of options available to you on how to present/restrict the information in the vendor admin area. My suggestion would be to add a link to the my-account menu (using a hook) that is conditional upon $runtime.company_id being non-zero. That will then show a link in the vendor's my-account menu that would point to your static page (like a pdf file). Give a shout if this is outside your ability and we'll be happy to give you a reasonable quote. Click the get-a-quote link in my signature to make the request.
