How to protect articles with TZ Portfolio


A lot of people are interested in using Joomla as a content management system to spread information to other people worldwide. Some information is concerned as public resource, but some is regarded as private content that needs protection. This is the reason why security has become much important so far.

When do you have to protect content on your website?

There are some of main scenarios that will make you come up with a thought of password protecting a certain part of content on your website. What are they?
- Sensitivity: sometimes the content and images on your blog or webpage contain sensitive factors unsuitable for young audiences.
- Limited sales: If you're a painter, you might have an interest in a private sale area where your art works are visible to potential clients, instead of bringing them publicly online.
- Paid privilege: If you're trying to generate special courses and classes that belong to premium members, not general users, you may consider restricting access to specific groups of users.

So when you encounter one of above cases, what do you do to protect your content? Let's follow me to discover a simple way that TZ Portfolio offers you.
