Views Support

The additional support includes fields, filters, and sort capabilities that are added to the Node type. The join between the regular node and the protected node data is the node identifier (nid). This means the revision identifier is ignored.

  • Password last changed

    This value is the date when the password was last modified. You can display this date, filter using the date, and sort by date.

Password Fork Feature

Password Fork

The new module allows for a password fork.

This means you can send your users to one specific page, and tell them about a password to use on that one page. Depending on the password, they will be sent to one of several nodes.

This works in a very similar way as the other password form, except that there is no specific destination, and the users need to know any one of the passwords.

The feature uses a specific URL defined as follow:

/protected-nodes?protected_pages=<nid1>,<nid2>,...&back=<url>

Password Form

Protected Node Password Form

Once a node is protected, users who cannot bypass the password are sent to a simple password form.

The password form includes a field for users to enter the node password, and an "OK" button.

When the user's browser sends a referrer, the Protected Node module adds a "Cancel" link back to that referrer. The "Cancel" link can be made to always appear by using global settings. If no referrer is available, the "Cancel" link returns users to the home page.

Per Node Type Settings

Node Type extension

The Protected Node module adds a field set to the Node Type form that you edit under:

Structure » Content types

These additions are explained in detail below.

The main reason for adding this feature is to avoid seeing the field set on all the node edit forms. With this feature you can hide the form on all the node types that you will never protect with a password.

Protected mode for nodes of this type

This option let you choose how this node type handles the Protected Node capability.

Password Field set

Once installed and properly configured, the Protected node module adds a field set in the node edit form (assuming the user has the corresponding permission: "edit any password" or "edit password [node type]".)

Password field set sample.This field set includes two flags, a password, and emails (optional.)

By default, the field set is closed unless you selected protected by default. Whether the field set should be opened or closed can selected in the node type settings.

Global Settings

The protected node module has global settings found under:

Configuration » Content Authoring » Protected node
