I just shipped a pretty awesome FREE update to PageSafe. You can now have multiple passcodes. As if that was not cool enough, you can also manage passcodes with Total CMS!!!
I will wait for you to catch your breathe, I know this is a lot to take in…
Multiple passcodes solves the issue where you have multiple people logging into a website and you may want to turn off their access in the future. You can now create as many passcode as you want in Page Safe (enter in one passcode per line in the settings). If you ever need to revoke a passcode, simply delete it from the list, publish and they are locked out.
Managing passcodes in Total CMS makes this a powerful way for customers to manage their own passcodes. On important note is that the passcodes configured inside the stack are considered “master” passcodes and cannot be changed or removed. This is so that you always know a passcode when your customer has forgotten theirs.
You can setup management of the passcodes very easily. Simply use a Text Admin stack and set the CMS ID to be the same as the PageSafe ID. Save one or more passcodes and you are done!
When managing passcodes with Total CMS, I need to be upfront and let you know that the CMS will store data in plain text on your server. While chances are slim anyone will discover it, it is a risk. This can be overcome simply by using a small rule inside your
<Files pagesafe.cms> order allow,deny deny from all </Files>
This rule assumes that you are using the default PageSafe/CMS ID of
