Allows users to log into a site, and provide different functionality for logged in users (such as displaying their profile).
This would be extremely useful and has been consistently requested in the forum Wish List since April 2014.
Integrating this type of system with Webflow's new password protected areas would be a strong next step and adding this to Webflow's platform would make it stand out, relative to its competitors.
That is a great Idea. Think about it, if a user could login in combination with the Wishlist Idea "E-commerce Support":
And they are only some of the possibilities. What would you use it for?
need need need this!
Please do this!
In combination with the ability to let users generate content.
Strongly agree that this could be a game changer for Webflow. Allowing designers to build beautiful custom UGC sites with no code would be a revolution. I would definitely use this for my main community websites, for example to build a job board.I would make profile sections so people can set their status - (seeking job/hiring/raising money etc. so we can help); A personalized event sections so people can follow events and opportunities relevant for them; And a way for people to collect and save the information they discover on our site (events, companies, people they should meet, FAQ articles to read again etc)
This would be an awesome feature! One step closer to fully fledged web apps!
That would be a great feature :D!
Would be very useful!
+1 on this!!
This is definitely great, but having built SaaS systems, this isn't something's that so easy to be done. Password protecting pages and user authentication are 2 very different things. I would suggest Webflow team to build this as a separate product altogether, instead of combining them.I can already how much of a development nightmare this could be.
I bet if webflow merged all the logon, username/pw and/or secure pages posts into one, this would be at the top.
Generally speaking, it would be great to be able to design not just responsive sites in webflow, but also multi-platform web applications. For example, there's a lot of buzz about progressive web apps right now. Besides users authentication, Webflow could at some point offer a plan to allow more complex stuff to get done. There's tools to build native apps already, but to my knowledge, nothing that allows to build new-generation web apps yet. I'd love to do it in webflow. For example I'd love to be able to sell digital products and give customers access to them via some sort of authentication. Thanks. The Wishlist site is a fantastic idea, you guys are always ahead!
+3 We´re hardly need this feature for our clients
+3, I have been asking for this on the forums for over a year - IT WOULD BE AMAZING.
I don't ask for much, in fact, theres only 3 things I've ever wanted, "Search Functionality, The Ability to transfer classes and styles between webflow sites, and User login and registration! OMG! Please make this happen webflow, it would be a game changer. Cant believe more people haven't voted this in yet.. this is hugeeeeee!
can i just add all of my 15 votes to this lol
This is what membership site looks like, awesome webflow cannot miss it.
I just wanted to point out that webflow.com has the 'Made in Webflow' badge and we can all log in to webflow... How did they make that happen? *sarcasm*
I think about implementation, and it can be like:
1) Customizable user sign up page that adds user in database and adds data from 'User Collection' ('name, e-mail, 'age' e.t.c)
2) in Designer, we can use this data from 'User collection', to show name, e-mail, on account page, on top of the site, e.t.c
3) We can create something like 'individual collection of references' for him, like 'rules' or 'tags', and then show/hide content depending on this tags
4) For example, if user bought 'some shoes', we can assign tag 'bought some shoes', and add the reference to 'some shoes' and then in designer select 'Display if 'bought some shoes' and 'Get content from <reference item('some shoes')>'
5) So in this case we can create special page, like 'my purchase', or 'my orders', or it can be 'my downloadable resources', 'my lessons', ANYTHING.
If you will do this, this will be the end of Wordpress.
Please offer this soon! Much needed!
I would LOVE to have this option available. To be able to display elements to logged in users would be terrific.
Working on a project now that could really use this functionality. Any movement on whether your planning on building this out?
This is one of the key features of any serious CMS system which is content driven website - to have users that can add content and have roles in managing the content. If Webflow wants to stand out from the row where FREE CMS systems offer that feature, This feature is the must. Also the main commercial competitor of Webflow offers this, so why is it still under consideration while it is on the first page of the MOST WANTED features ???It should be in development already.
We would be grateful if Admin could provide an update on this.After all, it is one of the most popular and wished for items in the entire Wish List (currently seventh) and Admin haven't provided any indication of the potential for this feature since it was posted in December last year.
As many have said, this would be a total 'game changer' for Webflow. It would open so many additional doors and functionality possibilities. Admin have in the distant past said this type of feature would be notably difficult to implement, but in my view, in order for Webflow to move to the next level and compete effectively, this feature is a necessity rather than a 'nice to have'.
Very exciting feature! I was searching for a way to piece together this functionality, but no need if you make it native.+3May we kindly have a update on this feature?
This is definitely a must-have feature. I'm in the process of developing a site for a distributor that, in the future, would like to offer personalized pages for each of her clients to access information only available to them. A simple sign in page with their own username and password (or even just a unique password is given to them) to access that info.
This would be a great USP feature. An user account management is needed:
Does anyone have any idea about the status if this feature, or if this is even likely to become a real thing in the near future or at all? This is a potential show stopper for lots of our projects
This would be great! However, if done wrong it could really make things confusing.
YES YES, PLEASE. Front end user handling for restricted areas with content like download material would be great, especially for our b2b clients. Also cms backend users with different rights, e. g. for language areas could be a great deal. This would allow us to switch really big projects to Webflow.
If I also need it ... webflow is already time to take the next step. you can
This function would be heaven for me. So much so that I feel guilty asking for it! How dare I dream of using such high level function with pathetic amount of web programming knowledge. It's criminal enough that I have taken so much advantages from this incredible platform that Webflow's geniuses created.
All I need is login function and display individual profile. Can I have that please?
Would be pretty amazing if Webflow could integrate this functionality with Firebase! Authentication, Real time database...
We could literally started to build anything!
I NEED THIS!!
I love this idea so much
Has there been any commitment to implement this (or similar) feature? Any status would be helpful...
This is a must have for Webflow, not a nice to have.
Would move over our whole platform with this functionality and e-commerce
This coupled with eCommerce would MURDER any competition. I'm holding on to my current Fantasy Football Metrics client by using Sentry Login but he intends to grow and change by 2018 (maybe even add a forum for his site). I need to be able to customize and interact with paying members to the site. I don't see me losing my retainer from this client any time soon...but having this feature would seal the deal and open up new avenues for increased revenues on everybody's ends.
i like to develop webpage using webflow
Yes please!!! Is there an update on this from Webflow staff? The ability to create individual logins on my webflow sites would be HUGE.
Yes, this is the logical next step, coupled with an actual app for IOS/Android. If Webflow doesn't do it soon, someone else will.
IF WEBFLOW CAN BE MORE COMMUNITY MINDED AND DO THIS , THEY'LL BEAT ANYONE
This would definitely be a game changer. Any update? Is it still on the radar? Will it make the development roadmap anytime soon?
• Webflow will never beat WordPress until this is added — even if it's superior in ALL other areas
• add some SSO ability — would make Webflow unbeatable
• I'd be using WebFlow without question if it supported users; but it's a deal killer
I have a website with gated content. Unless user authentication is added soon, it is inevitable that I will need to move my websites away from Webflow's hosting.
There are third-party login solutions out there that can be added using custom code, but without server access it is impossible to restrict access to only authenticated users.
Perhaps instead of developing this themselves, Webflow could work with another provider who already has the tech, and offer this as an optional plugin?
I find it painful that this is so easy to do in Wordpress and Squarespace, while in Webflow we have to satisfy ourselves with "one password for everyone!!!!"
Why hasn't this idea got a status? It would be a game changer.
I agree with above post , although it's a very popular wish there is no status avaliable. Is it perhaps because it's a special X-mass gift :)?
Considering how many developed search for your website, login and registration functionality and ecommerce we do not see in the next 10 years))). By the way, ecommerce is not possible without search functionality. And in General, without access to the code, the normal website in our time is not done. Every day websites are complicated and simple interactions of the elements is no surprise. So webflow will not be a competitor of many cms's.
Imagine with a single checkbox if a user could simply switch on user management (e.g. https://developer.okta.com/ or https://auth0.com/user-management).Now imagine if with another checkbox they could accept payments for plans or access to specific content from those users (i.e. give a user a specific role depending upon payment, that would give that user access to downloads or parts of the website/app).Imagine.
Webflow team could you give us reason why is this not marked as in developement yet? requested by more than 1100 votes for over 3 years now! I want to be working in webflow but lack of the basic functions pushes me to competition (against my desire) and the truth is that I don’t want to be learning two systems and jumping back and forth, with everysingle time I have to go to wordpress because basic functions like this one or pagination, custom break points etc. are missing I’m less likely to comeback...I want to support webflow but we need more updates on these core functions and why are/ aren’t being developed yet!
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
