PP Presentation + Password Protected

Recommended Posts

chisim11

Unsure if possible. But will like to add a page where I would have clients to enter username, password or both so they can access to a PowerPoint presentation. I know I've seen it on other websites but unsure whether it could be done with Wordpress/Pagelines. Is this done thru widgets? Sorry for long question Thanks

What you probably want here is a membership plugin such as s2Member. It will allow you to set certain pages as password protected. Wordpress has a built in password-protect ability as well. When you go to edit a post or by the Publish button click to edit Visibility. Then check Password Protected and set a password for that page.

1. You upload the PPT using the Media tools of Wordpress. It will allow you to Insert into Post (or page). 2. When you do, it will create a link based on the name of the PPT file. 3. Save your page or post and view. 4. Click the link and it will download the file to the local computer. As for viewing PPT files inline, you can use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tgn-embed-everything/ or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-document-embedder/

Keep in mind that the full effects of Powerpoint are not best seen as an online embed, but on the visitor's actual computer. If you go the default route, make sure you add security to your PPT presentations.
