What does it mean to "Password Protect" a site or gallery?
When a site or gallery is "Password Protected", that means the site or gallery requires a password in order to enter. An artist can password protect when they wish to only display their work to a select group of persons. This is useful for artist's who do commissioned work. For example, a photographer can give a client access to a gallery which displays work from a private photo session, allowing only that client to select and purchase prints. No one can access a password protect site or gallery unless they have the password.
How do I access a password protected site or gallery?
First, you must have the password. You'll need to receive the password from the appropriate artist or seller. Once you have the password, you can gain access by navigating to the site or gallery and then entering the password.
As a seller, how do I password protect my site or gallery?
You can password protect your site or gallery through Power Edit. In Power Edit, navigate to the site or gallery you wish to password protect. Notice the section with the question 'Password protect this site/gallery?'; select "Yes" and after creating a password, click the "Save" button at the bottom of the form. Your site or gallery will then be protected and will require a password in order to gain access.
Why doesn't the password work any longer?
The password for a site or gallery may not work any longer because the seller may have changed the password. In that case, you'll need to receive the new password from the seller.
