Yahoo Geocities How to work with Yahoo Geocities Free?

If you are using the Yahoo Geocities Free plan or Yahoo PageBuilder and PageWizards to create your web pages, please read this tutorial.

Otherwise, if you are using the Yahoo Geocities Plus/Pro plan and Yahoo Site Builder or either FrontPage or Dreamweaver to create your web page, please follow the tutorial for Yahoo Site Builder, Frontpage and Dreamweaver.

Step 1:

Use Yahoo PageBuilder or Yahoo PageWizards to create your webpage, including the files needing protection.

Step 2:

View the webpage with Internet Explorer, then click Internet Explorer menu "View->Source", and the source code of the web page will open in Notepad.

Click Notepad menu "File -> Save As", and save it as an HTML file with an ".html" extension.

Step 3:

Now you can use HTML Password Lock to password protect this HTML file.

Launch HTML Password Lock.

In Step 1, click on the "Add file" button, browse to the folder where the HTML file has been saved locally on your computer, select the HTML file(s) you want to protect, add the file(s) to the file list.

In Step 2, define username and password. If this is the first time you use the software, you can click on the "Next" button to skip Steps 3 and 4, keeping the default options.

In the Last Step, click on the "Lock" button. The locked file will be listed on the file list.

Select the file on the file list, double-click it or click on the "Test" button to open it with your web browser and test the password protection. If you opened the file with Internet Explorer, click on the yellow alert bar on top of the web page, select "Allow Blocked Content" in the popup window, click on the "Yes" button.

For a detailed description of this step, please refer to Quick Start.

Step 4:

Now that the HTML file has been locked, you can upload the web pages to your web server via the "File Manager" in Geocities control panel.

After a HTML file is protected, you cannot edit the protected content with Yahoo PageBuilder or PageWizards anymore, so the best solution is to save the locked HTML file with a different filename, thus avoiding the needing to overwrite the existing HTML file on your web server.

Select "Manage" panel, then click "Easy Upload":

Yahoo Site Manager

Click on the "Browse..." button to select the locked HTML file, then click on the "Upload files" button to upload the locked file to your web server.
