Password-protect Article - updates?

Post by Compositeur » Fri May 07, 2021 5:34 pm

Have looked everywhere for a simple extension that will password-protect an article. No joy. :'(

Extensions revealed in searches either do not install, are out of date, or require quite in-depth configuration to get to work.

Any suggestions? :geek:

Can't you use ACL?

Without edit permission, a User cannot edit an article.

Addition to @per's comment, if you need to protect the article from being viewed then set it to "Registered" whereby only registered users can see it. Public and Guest cannot.

You need to update Joomla 3.9.5 is out of date. The current version is 3.9.26
