Make a folder private?

Post by nexgraphics » Tue Apr 16, 2019 6:47 pm

Hi, I have a site in which a client brought something to my attention...I cant show the real link since it could be a security issue or a privacy issue, but heres what Im trying to do.

Domain is www.thedomain.com/webform/companyabc.com

In this type of link, I have the folder called "webform" and a BUNCH of custom pages that I create for each client with a separate form for each of them. The problem is that one of my clients brought to my attention that if you go to this link www.thedomain.com/webform each of my clients and their page is directly on view on a page called INDEX OF WEBFORM, and all links/pages are there - I dont wnat any of my clients seing each others page. How can I make this page www.thedomain.com/webform NOT show up live yet not affect pages inside of the folder? I tried right clicking on the folder but I just see DONT PUBLISH which affects the links below it.

Thank you!'

Is the site your referring to made with WB or with WP. I noticed you have switched to WP and looking at some of your recent work shows they are made with WP also. Please note that we cannot offer help with sites made with WP as the forum is help with the software only.

PM are disabled on the forum Lee so unable to do it that way. I personally dont take emails. Ok lets try this there are are couple of ways to do this one is using a .htacess file with rules to hide the folder or you can try simply adding a index.html (blank) file to each folder so that when they attempt to visit yourwebsite.com/folder/ to see the content the index.html will be shown instead.
